Back in the s, with Playboy in its heyday, publisher Hugh Hefner was nominated for an Alumni Achievement Award from his alma mater. The awards committee at the University of Illinois Alumni Association, which had turned down the fabulously successful but controversial Hefner several times before, finally voted him in at the urging of some younger alumni. He was to be honored at commencement with two other alums who would march in with the honorary degree recipients in ceremonial robes. We will not attend any of the social gatherings where he will be present,'" Vermette said. The award was eventually withdrawn after a lengthy debate and close vote by the Alumni Association board. The story illustrates the UI's complicated relationship with one of its most famous alums, shunned by some as a pornographer, celebrated by others for staunchly supporting the First Amendment and civil rights, and considered one of the most influential people of the 20th century for reshaping American's views toward sex. A Chicago native, Hefner enrolled at the UI in as a psychology student, following his high school sweetheart, Millie Williams, to the university. He carried a double load of classes and graduated early in with a degree in psychology and a double-minor in creative writing and art.
Today, we update you on people and places from the recent past and decades ago. Here, streaking at the University of Illinois. The top-ranked UI was actually tied for the lead among the top "streaking colleges," a weekly poll published by the National Collegiate Streakers Association at St. Louis University. A March 7 nude skydive by four members of the UI parachuting club and a mass streak across the Quad by as many as students the following day launched the school into national notoriety. The fame has fizzled. Some students tried to recreate a "Flash Wednesday" event in — a couple dozen showed up but kept their clothes on when they spotted police on the Quad. Aside from philanthropic "underwear mile" runs and a "naked bike ride" — which is more of a nearly-naked bike ride — mad dashes au naturel are a less common sighting these days. The National Collegiate Streakers Association appears to have disbanded.
Edward Weston kept meticulous records of his work throughout his long career, and in a daybook entry of wrote that he had created "the finest series of nudes I have ever done. The model for the series was his friend Anita Brenner, who posed for a single sitting in November of that year. The female form is difficult to decipher in photographs from the series on Brenner. The figure in Krannert Art Museum's print is more legible than others—the model is seated with her back to the photographer and her arms raised around her drawn-up legs. In another example, where the model's arms and legs are tucked in completely, the form resembles that of Weston's iconic pepper print.
I am married to an ER doc and agree that having your own life, being independent, and not going into the relationship with any preconceived notions is what makes it work for us.
