Family Nudist History

What if you grew up hearing that your great, great, grandfather was known as Rudy The Nudie? That is exactly the experience of Evan Nix who was intrigued enough to start doing some research. He tells us the story of Rudolph Johnson who was a prominent nudist and president of the American Sunbathing Association (ASA and today known as AANR) in 1950-51. You will hear how his research took him from mere curiosity to active naturist participation for his whole family.

Note: This was edited on October 26, 2019 to remove the name and photo of the executive director from the show notes. For personal reasons he no longer wishes to be associated with that part of AANR’s history. We agreed to remove his name so that it would not be indexed by search engines. However the audio interview remains as it provides a relevant record of AANR’s objectives during that period in time.
