Streaker and grateful onlookers
Date: 1974 Size: 369x470 pixels
A lone male student wearing only a ski mask, shoes, and socks ran in 58-degree weather from Thach Avenue to an awaiting car in front of Commons at 10:10 a.m. on February 15, 1974--Auburn's first streaker.  Within days, there were singles and groups of streakers at Auburn, and it became almost ho-hum until the night shown here.  A member of the University Disciplinary Committee said the coed "was an attractive woman of great modesty and found it impossible to say she was naked."  She was quoted as saying, "A large crowd had gathered on the Social Center lawn and on the Concourse, and I was just there with the crowd.  I had no intention of doing anything, but I suddenly found myself taking my clothes off.  I took all of my clothes off!"  She was placed on probation for a year.  Note the expressions on the faces of Mike Cooper, right and other male students.  The authors selected this shot knowing full-well they would be criticized by some for printing the picture at all and by others for printing it too small.
