The Ivy League nude posture photos were taken in the 1940s through the 1970s of all incoming freshmen, ostensibly to gauge the rate and severity of rickets, scoliosis, and lordosis in the population. The project was run by William Herbert Sheldon and E.A. Hooton who were using the data to support their eugenical theory on body types and social hierarchy. What remained of the images were transferred to the Smithsonian and those were destroyed around 2001.
