    Why only Men?
    I’m sure the ladies are pretty proficient in electronics

    You took a mail-order course? Well, I guess you’re qualified to work on these missiles then.

    What’s with the “Draft Age?” bit? You take this course, you avoid the draft? Or did that have to do with the Toronto campus? Seems a bit early for that to me.

    In 1958, I was just entering college. Alas, there were no ladies in my electronics classes.

    In the early 60′s there were plenty of jobs in the defense industry for people with no degrees. Technical training, no matter how acquired, would have been a plus.

    About draft age: There was an educational deferment as long as you were in school. I don’t think it applied to correspondence courses though. Also, if you worked in a defense industry you might qualify for a deferment.

    The US draft was very well alive at this time. In fact, the only time it wasn’t fully active between 1940 and 1972 is in the immediate post-World War II years, when those selected were not inducted. Elvis was drafted in 1957.

    What I find interesting, though, is that 626 Roselawn Avenue, Toronto is smack dab in the middle of the Roselawn Avenue Jewish Cemetery, which has been in that location since the 1880s. Either the street numbering has changed or the DeVry Institute had a distinctly less active student body than it presently enjoys.

    Oh, and Dan: the ladies may have been pretty proficient, but DeVry didn’t accept their applications. Many schools and universities either dissuaded or outright barred women from entering fields considered inappropriate. It was only in the late 80s that many universities in Canada stopped using overt intimidation tactics (showing hard-core porn during lectures, outright threats, etc.) to try to weed women out of engineering streams. My high school didn’t even allow girls to take Electronics – in the late 70s.

    For “very well alive”, read “well and alive”.

    Aww man, I hardly saw any porn during my lectures in the 1990s 8-).
    Well, truthfully, none. They did weed out about 1/2 of my class (in CompSci) just by making CS 1 at 9AM though. (It also weeded out the professor, he came in once, said he couldn’t get up that early, and had TAs teach the rest of it 8-)

    I like that professor’s attitude, hwertz.
