About eight years ago, Gloria Proctor, 63, came into possession of a small collection of vintage erotica: sepia-toned nude photographs, titillating tchotchkes, racy pocket books from the s with titles like Kept Woman and Part Time Passion —that sort of thing. She became fascinated by these glimpses into the sexual mores of other periods, and decided to build on the collection, roaming the 19th Street antique shops in the Heights, browsing eBay, and visiting estate sales. We were very open-minded, and I was raised like that. Nothing offends me. Of course, if it were very vulgar and nasty it would. In other words, Proctor collects, but not indiscriminately.

The Smithsonian Institution has cut off all public access to a collection of nude photographs taken of generations of college students, some of whom went on to become leaders in American culture and government. The pictures at first were taken to study posture. Later they were made by a researcher examining what he believed to be a relationship between body shape and intelligence. All freshmen here at Yale and at some of the other colleges and universities involved were required to pose in the nude.
