Melvin considered himself an ordinary 1950s Washington DC guy. We interviewed him in 1989 as one of the characters for my television series, Making Sense Of The Sixties. He was frank and honest about what he remembered and how he felt about it at the time when this interview was made. Obviously not every man at that time felt like he did. But my experience interviewing hundreds of men at that time who had grown up in the 1950s and 1960s is that many more felt like Melvin then would admit to it in the 1990s when some level of political correctness and decency changed how men expressed their feelings and to some extent how they actually felt. Melvin describes hanging out on the street, something many did in the 1950s. Not being too impressed with the political movements of the 50s and the 60s. Staunchly anti-Communist and anti-Russian. Not into the sexual revolution. When I was doing my television series we did some research on what percent of the 60s generation, the baby boomers, felt that they were part of the 60s generation and participated in its activities, social or political. A very small percent were political activists during the 1960s. A much larger percent felt that they were part of the social cultural activities of that time – long hair – freer sex – marijuana – rock 'n' roll – more loose social activities then the moral rules parents and schools taught back in the 1950s. I call Melvin and "ordinary" guy because that is how he saw himself. He was a cabdriver for most of his working life and enjoyed it. Some ask about his accent. I believe he was raised in Delaware.
