We learned about this when we were students at Cubberley (way back in the olden days '79 - the last year before it closed), and this was discussed again by a college professor I had many years later.

Its a fascinating (amazing) piece of history, for people who think 'it can't happen here - we're too xxx (smart, educated, independent, etc.)

It REALLY illustrates the tangible dangers of balkanizing our community. I'd say its required reading for Palo Altans old and new.
