Student Body


1968. Vicky Brago-Mitchell, a Stanford University student by day and, under the stage name Vicky Drake, a topless dancer by night. Vicky ran for student body president with this image of her outside Stanford Mausoleum as her campaign poster. It featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, newspapers worldwide and perhaps most famously in Playboy (reprinted again three years later in their Youth Culture special edition) but ultimately, Vicky lost and was not elected.

    1. Interesting to hear from you! Why was that, was it aesthetic or did you feel exploited by its usage?
