« I FELT FREE TO TAKE LIBERTIES WITH THE NOVEL [by Peter Fortunato] | Main | Witness a unique début with Ruth Childs’ “fantasia” [by Tracy Danison] »

November 20, 2019


I believe the last panty raid as described took place in Fall 1967. I was living in Hartley Hall and there was a rush and cry and suddenly the words "panty raid" filled the air. There was a lot of sexual energy on both sides that needed to find expression, a rite of late adolescence. But in 1968 Barnard junior Linda Leclair and her Columbia boyfriend shacked up in a story that made the front page of the New York Times (Below the fold). No more panty raids after that. --DL
