The "Posture" Photos

Collegiate/ivy league nude photos: "Nora Ephron (Wellesley '62) recalled when I spoke with her. 'But don't forget the famous rumored stolen Wellesley posture photos.'

'Wellesley too?'

'Oh, yes,' she said. 'It's one of those urban legends.'

She can laugh about it now, she said, but in retrospect the whole idea that she and all her smart classmates went along with being photographed in this way dismays her. 'We were idiots,' she said. 'Idiots!'"
