What Really Happened to the Class of '65?

What Really Happened to the Class of '65? is a 1976 non-fiction book by Michael Medved and David Wallechinsky. Inspired by a 1965 Time magazine article, the authors follow up on the people of Palisades High School, some of whom were mentioned in the article, and the book mainly consists of that follow-up. There was at least one sequel, continuing the story from the point of view of a decade or more later.
