Silent Tuesday

Unidentified fans and teammates rush onto court to congratulate Philadelphia Warriors Wilt Chamberlain (13) at Hershey, Pa., March 2, 1962, after he scored his 100th point for an NBA record. The Warriors won the game, defeating the New York Knickerbockers 169 -147. 

Each Tuesday the Citizen Tribune shares a photo from the formative years of the Silent Generation. Born from 1927 to 1945, the Silent Generation is sandwiched between the G.I. Generation and the Boomer Generation. There were 46,582,000 Silent Generation children born. The formative years for the Silent Generation range from the early 1930s through the early 1960s.

The Silent Generation was influenced by the Great Depression and World War II.
