I was going through some clippings, and thought people might be interested in this, if you don't know about him.

I remember that guy.

When I used to live in Danville, he was all over the local news. Sad that his life got ruined like that for simply wanting to walk around naked. Not exactly a horrible crime.

I don't think UCB is responsible for giving him schizophrenia.

I met him at a party in Berkeley during his heyday...he seemed like a genuinely nice guy.

Yep. I remember him. Frequently I tease my boyfriend when he's flashing me that he can be Berkeley's next naked guy. (He lives in Berkeley.)

It's sad to read how this man's story ended. But it's not surprising that he had some sort of mental illness. I know there are nudists out there, but they to keep it within the confines of places where nudists come together.

Mental illnesses like schizophrenia usually don't show symptoms for most people until they hit their late teens or early 20s.
