College women posing nude was a controversial topic for many years. At the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in 1937, a coed was dismissed for posing for a drawing class. The college traditionally obtained their models from professionals in Chicago and Milwaukee. The young woman in question was both a professional model and music student at the university. An out of state student from New York she had her professional modeling license. When it was discovered that she also studied at UW, university officials made her stop. The resulting furor made national headlines. The student/model eventually found work as a waitress to pay for her college studies.
