It was the year when Elvis Presley was inducted into the Army. It was also the year when unemployment reached 20 percent in Detroit to a recession, when the Dodgers and Giants played the first regular-season baseball game as West Coast teams, and when a young musician named Leonard Bernstein began a series of televised “Young People Concerts” that would continue for 14 years.
