In the section entitled "The Sieve and the Sand", Montag tells us that it was “forty years ago when the last liberal arts college shut for lack of students and patronage.” This means forty years prior to the start of the story. The year of the story is not specified, but it is sometime in the 21st century.

IN the book it states 40 years ago!
