The 1960s, like the 1950s before it, was a time of peace in the wizarding world, [[Gellert Grindelwald]] having long been defeated by this point; however, because of this peace, no one in the wizarding world was prepared for Lord Voldemort's new war. The Marauders, the Evans sisters and [[Severus Snape]] were all born around 1960.

This would be the decade when [[Molly Prewett]], [[Arthur Weasley]], the Black sisters, [[Edward Tonks|Ted Tonks]] and possibly [[Gideon Prewett|Gideon]] and [[Fabian Prewett|Fabian Prewett]] all attended Hogwarts, roughly between the years 1960 and 1973.

The following events occurred in the 1960s:

The 1960s, like the 1950s before it, was a time of peace in the wizarding world, Gellert Grindelwald having long been defeated by this point; however, because of this peace, no one in the wizarding world was prepared for Lord Voldemort's new war. The Marauders, the Evans sisters and Severus Snape were all born around 1960.

This would be the decade when Molly Prewett, Arthur Weasley, the Black sisters, Ted Tonks and possibly Gideon and Fabian Prewett all attended Hogwarts, roughly between the years 1960 and 1973.

Minerva McGonagall likely became Head of Gryffindor House between 1955 and 1961, and Hagrid's predecessor, Ogg, was Gamekeeper for Hogwarts until at least 1968.
