Subject: Streaking--1960s



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.
