A UPI story which appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, 8 April
1965, page 8, reads: ═Boulder, Colorado▀ This spring's fad on the
University of Colorado campus is called 'streaking.' It means running
naked through a public gathering." The rest of this story relates
that UC students who streaked in Mazatlan, Mexico, in March, were
chased by police and shot at. Five students were arrested and spent
two days in jail without clothes.
Herb Caen's column which appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle of 18
September 1967, page 27, reads: "If you're in Sausalito one of these
nights, and some guy with no clothes on runs past, fast as hell,
your're seeing a 'streaker.' It's a contest, called 'Streaking,' that
started a few years ago on the campuses, and seems to be reviving.
The idea is to be seen naked by as many people as possible without
getting caught; . . ."
Hope this helps.
