  •  Some Prep Schools as Late as the 1970's (2+ / 0-)

    with no military component at all. Cell phones, pocket recording-playback devices and computers didn't exist, so tv's, radios and record players were easy to forbid and control.

    It'd be interesting to track the successive classes of his school after the 1950's. I have some civilian preppy acquaintances who say there was a significant discontinuity for a few years in the late 1960's graduating classes, when life outcomes and subsequent lifelong interest in supporting the school were quite different from the norms before and after.

    I'd expect less of that, maybe none, in a military school. It might be though that a less diverse spread of philosophies and inclinations would've been willing to attend military school during that period.
