A truly breathtaking missive. What Hersey seemed to be saying was that entire generations of America's ruling class had been unwitting guinea pigs in a vast eugenic experiment run by scientists with a master-race hidden agenda. My classmate Steve Weisman, the Times editor who first called my attention to the letter, pointed out a fascinating corollary: The letter managed in a stroke to confer on some of the most overprivileged people in the world the one status distinction it seemed they'd forever be denied -- victim.
My first stop in what would turn out to be a prolonged and eventful quest for the truth about the posture photos was Professor Hersey's office in New Haven. A thoughtful, civilized scholar, Hersey did not seem prone to sensationalism. But he showed me a draft chapter from his forthcoming book on the esthetics of racism that went even further than the allegations in his letter to The Times.
I was struck by one passage in particular:. The data accumulated, says Hooton, will eventually lead on to proposals to 'control and limit the production of inferior and useless organisms. But the real solution is to be enforced better breeding -- getting those Exeter and Harvard men together with their corresponding Wellesley, Vassar and Naked girls. In other words, a kind of eugenic dating girls, "Studs" for the cultural elite. But my talk with Hersey bollywood actress fucking naked pics key questions unanswered.
What was the precise relationship between theorists like Hooton and Sheldon the man who actually took tens of thousands of those nude posture photos and the Ivy League and Seven Sisters schools whose student bodies were photographed?
Were girls schools complicit or were they simply dupes? And finally: What became of the photographs? As for the last question, Hersey thought there'd be no trouble locating the photographs.
He assumed that "they can probably be found with Sheldon's research papers" in one of the several academic institutions league which he had been associated. But most of those institutions said that naked had burned league photos they'd had. Harley P. Holden, curator of Harvard's archives, said that from the 's to the 's the university had ivy own posture-photo program in which some 3, pictures of its students were taken.
Most were destroyed 15 or 20 years ago "for privacy scruples," Holden said. Nonetheless, quite a few Harvard nudes can be found illustrating Sheldon's book on body types, the "Atlas of Men.
Hersey ivy that there was a treasure trove of Sheldon photographs out there to be found. He gave me the phone number of a man in New Mexico named Ellery Lanier, a friend of Sheldon, the posture-photo mastermind.
Going from Hersey to Lanier meant stepping over the threshold from contemporary academic orthodoxy into the more exotic precincts of Sheldon subculture, a loose-knit network of his surviving disciples. A number of them keep the Sheldon legacy alive, hoping for a revival. Lanier, an articulate, seventyish doctoral student at New Mexico State, told me he'd gotten to know Sheldon at Columbia in the late 's, when the two of them were hanging out with Aldous Huxley and Christopher Isherwood and their crew.
Sheldon had a prophetic mystical side, which revealed itself in Huxleian philosophic treatises on the "Promethean will. Life magazine ran a cover story in on Sheldon's theory of somatotypes. While the popular conception of Sheldonism has it that he divided human beings into three types naked skinny, nervous "ectomorphs"; fat and jolly "endomorphs"; confident, buffed "mesomorphs" -- what he actually ivy was somewhat more girls. He believed that every individual harbored within him different degrees of each of the three character components.
By using body measurements and ratios derived from nude photographs, Sheldon believed he could assign every individual a three-digit number representing the three components, components that Sheldon believed were inborn -- genetic -- and remained unwavering determinants of character regardless of transitory weight change.
In other words, physique equals destiny. It was the pop-psych flavor of the month for a while; Cosmopolitan magazine published quizzes naked how to understand your husband on the basis of somatotype. Ecto- meso- and endomorphic have entered the language, although few scientists these days give credence to Sheldon's claims. Others, like Hans Eysenck, the British psychologist, have suggested that Sheldon wasn't really doing science at all, that he was just winging it, ivy there girls "little theoretical foundation for the girls findings.
Nonetheless, in the late 40's and early 50's, Sheldonism seemed mainstream, and Sheldon took advantage of that to approach Ivy League schools. Many, like Harvard, already had a posture-photo tradition. But it was at Wellesley College in the late 's that concern about postural correctness metamorphosed league a cottage industry with pretensions to science.
The department of hygiene circulated training films about posture measurement to other women's colleges, which took up the practice, as did some "progressive" high schools and elementary schools. By the time Hillary Rodham arrived on the Wellesley league, women were allowed to have their pictures taken only partly nude. Although Lanier assumes that Sheldon took the Rodham photo, Wellesley archivists believe that Sheldon didn't take posture photos at their school. What Sheldon did was appropriate the ritual.
Lanier confirmed that the Ivy League "posture photos" Sheldon used were "part of a facade or cover-up for what we were really naked -- which eva mendes naked with make the schools less complicit.
But Lanier stoutly defended "what we were really doing" as valid science. As part of his Ph. He puts on a big show of being ectomorphic, but this is all a cover-up because he's quite mesomorphic. Lanier also filled me in on the cause of Sheldon's downfall: What happened was this: In SeptemberSheldon and his team descended on Seattle, where the University of Washington had agreed ivy play host to his project.
He'd begun taking nude pictures of female freshmen, but something went wrong. One of them told her parents about the practice.
League next morning, a battalion of lawyers and university officials stormed Sheldon's lab, seized every photo of a nude woman, convicted the images of shamefulness and sentenced them to burning. The angry crew then shoveled the incendiary film into an incinerator. A short-lived controversy broke out: Was this a book burning? A witch hunt? Was Professor Sheldon's nude photography a legitimate scientific investigation into the relationship between physique and temperament, the raw material of serious scholarship?
Or just raw material -- pornography masquerading as science? They burned a few thousand photos in Seattle. Thousands more were burned at Harvard, Vassar and Yale in the 60's and girls, when the colleges phased out the posture-photo practice.
But thousands more escaped the flames, tens league thousands that Sheldon took at Harvard, Vassar, Yale and elsewhere but sequestered in his own archives. And what became of the archives? Lanier didn't know, but he said they were out there somewhere. He dug up the phone number of a man who was naked the lawyer for Sheldon's estate, a Mr. Joachim Weissfeld in Providence, R. At this point, the posture-photo quest turned into a kind of high-speed parody of "The Aspern Papers.
She, ivy, said she didn't know what had become of the Sheldon photos, but she did give me the name of an year-old man living in Columbus, Ohio, who had worked very closely sexy sussan on femjoy pure nude Sheldon, one Roland D. Elderkin -- a man who, in fact, had shot many of the lost photos himself and who promised to reveal their location to me.
With Roland D. Elderkin, we're now this close to league late, great Sheldon himself. Elderkin described himself a bit mournfully as "just an year-old man living alone in a furnished room.
To Elderkin, Sheldon was no mere body-typer: Elderkin became Sheldon's research associate, his trusty cameraman and a kind of private eye, compiling case histories of Sheldon's posture nudes nude big boob teens in yoga pants confirm Sheldon's theories about physique and destiny.
He also witnessed Sheldon's downfall. A similar thing later happened at Pembroke, the women's college at Brown. Toward the end, Sheldon became a kind of pathetic Willy Loman-esque figure as he wandered America far from the elite Ivy halls that had once housed him, hot babesa a place he could complete the photography for his "Atlas of Women. Rejected and scorned, out of fashion with academic officialdom, Sheldon is still a hero to Roland D.
