Daily Virginia Trivia - Streaker & Congressman?


This is according to legend, but the first-ever recorded person to streak across a college campus was George William Crump, when he ran across the Washington College grounds (now Washington and Lee University) in 1804. Crump was supposedly arrested by Lexington police after the incident, but that didn't stop him from winning seats in both the Virginia House of Delegates and the 19th U.S. Congress later in his life.
