The path of totality was mostly off the east coast in 1972 so we only saw a partial of varying degree depending on location. Only Central Florida and Nova Scotia was in the totality path.
"From central Florida, the path hugged the eastern coast of the US up through Virgina's Eastern Shore. This may have been the eclipse that Carly Simon was referring to in her 1972 song "You're so vain". ("You flew your Lear jet up to Nova Scotia - to see the total eclipse of the sun.")"
