Drawn To History

Benjamin Franklin Nudist — For All To See

Nothing bothers me more than a intriguing historical tale without pictures to prove it. Like did Lewis and Clark really make it to the Pacific Ocean? There’s no photos and they didn’t take an illustrator with them on the trek. There’s a story that Benjamin Franklin was a nudist. You can find the story many places online. I first heard about it on a History channel program (Does that give it validity?). Ben liked to take “Air Baths” – enjoy the fresh air unencumbered. Ok, to each their own, but this was an image I just couldn’t erase from my head, so unfortunately you have to live with it too.
