Streaker on UK campus, 1974

Posted on July 31, 2014 | in Uncategorized | by
A  masked streaker evoked humor on March 5, 1974 from University of Kentucky students as he ran across the patio on central campus apparently  as a protest to the UK Board of Trustees, which was meeting at the Patterson Office Tower on March 5, 1974. The trustees were unaware of the incident. The high point of streaking's pop culture significance was in 1974, when thousands of streaks took place around the world.  Photo by E.

A masked streaker evoked a reaction from University of Kentucky students  on March 5, 1974, as he ran across the patio on central campus in an apparent protest to the UK Board of Trustees, which was meeting at the Patterson Office Tower. The trustees were unaware of the incident. The high point of streaking’s pop culture significance was in 1974, when thousands of streaks took place around the world, including at that year’s Academy Awards. Photo by E. Martin Jessee | Staff
