striptease stacie stormy lawrence, photos edward clark

originally came across these photos & this story courtesy of retronaut & life archive, 1948

“One of the most favorite stories is the one of the day Stacie ” Stormy ” Laurence, a New Orleans stripper, came on campus (March 4, 1948). She arrived at noon and started her dance before the Huey P. Long Field House as thirty students looked on…‘By the time of her second dance, a crowd of 1,000 students had gathered and trouble occurred. The students, enraged by her show, stormed the stripper throwing her into the lake, turned over her van and destroyed all the band equipment as the band members fled. Student Body President Gillis Long tried to quiet the crowd, but the mob prevailed.’
