The adversarial benevolence of Mervin Mounce. #thread
#MervinMounce’s early life was spent as a shopowner in the Spokane, WA area. Here he is pictured smoking a pipe in his store in 1932, courtesy of the Washington Rural Heritage Foundation.
Mounce rose to prominence in American Nudism in the 1940s first as a president of a nudist club known as #SunwayRanch in Spokane. In 1947, he co-founded @aanr_nw (then known as the #ASA). Pictured here with other NW founders, incl. #RudolphJohnson, #RayConnett, & #JimSutherlin

A #thread to celebrate #ZeldaSuplee, nudist leader, LGBTQ advocate, activist, writer, publisher, and occasional actor—seen here in the #DorisWishman film #DiaryOfANudist (1961). #PrideMonth
Born Zelda Roth in NYC in 1908 (pictured here age 2), she grew up in NJ. After high school she moved to Greenwich Village and in 1930 began working as a researcher for “Physical Culture” proponent #BernarrMacfadden, known for his controversial writing on health and sexuality.
She continued working for #BernarrMacfadden through her first marriage, which ended in 1946. It was not long after this divorce that she married the recently divorced #JReedSuplee, an engineer, former Quaker, and owner of Pennsylvania’s popular #SunnyRestLodge.

#EvelynWest and the ever long push and pull between nudism and sex. #threadstorytime Image
During the golden age of Nudism in the 50s and 60s, there were several controversial women who straddled the line between the nudism movement and a career in burlesque/pinup. Perhaps the first of these figures was #EvelynWest, whose career began in the 1940s. ImageImage
As a burlesque star, #EvelynWest became known for her PR antics. Probably most famously, she insured her breasts for $50k, leading to her nickname “The $50,000 Treasure Chest”. She’d later double down on the stunt, legally changing her name to “Evelyn $50,000 Treasure Chest West” ImageImage
