In Memoriam ...

Lee Baxandall (1935-2008)
founder

Lee was the founder and first president of The Naturist Society. He served as an ex officio non-voting member of the NAC board.

In addition to his obvious fondness for skinny-dipping, Lee had a love of history

and the theater, a combination that led him to document the high drama of the early days of American naturism. The resulting Free Beach Documentation Center evolved into The Naturist Society, and it was Lee's vision of volunteer activists working on behalf of naturism that became the Naturist Action Committee.
