This paper attempts to explain the occurrence of people claiming no religious identity ("nones") in the years 1957-1982 using Wuthnow's (1978) change model. The model does not fit data from 1957 nor 1963, but is consistent with information for the period 1972-82. It is argued that in 1957, and to some extent in 1963, structural-type nones predominated, while in the 1970s cultural-type nones did so. The adequacy of Wuthnow's model for understanding different types of nones and for understanding nones in different historical periods is discussed.
