The following events occurred in the 1960s:

The 1960s, like the 1950s before it, was a time of peace in the wizarding world, Grindleward 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 Prewitt, Arthur Weasley, the Black sisters, Ted Tonks and possibly Gideon and Fabian Prewitt 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.

  1. Arthur was born on the 6th February 1950, making him easily eligible for the 1961 year gap. As well as this, Molly says that the Fat Lady once scolded her for staying out so late, meaning that she was in Gryffindor.

  3. Mugglenet - Birthday archive: Remus Lupin
  4. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Chapter 4, "Horace Slughorn"). Slughorn mentions that Cresswell was in the year after Harry's mother Lily at Hogwarts. Chapter 16 of Deathly Hallows establishes that Lily was born in January of 1960, meaning she began her first year in September of 1971; thus Cresswell began in September of 1972, meaning he had to have turned 11 by that time, putting his date of birth sometime before 1 September in 1961.
