How about Benjamin Braddock from The Graduate? The novel was 1963, the film was 1967, and his college back east is never named. Or Matt Hooper from Jaws (though then you'd have 2 young Richard Dreyfuss impersonators).
Listening to old Simon & Garfunkel albums, The Sun is Burning
(originally by Ian Campbell 1963) is a sneaky little nuclear apocalypse folk tune that could be slipped in instrumentally if it fit the plot thematically (only if the story called for it of course).
