Who was Ed Lange?

Ed Lange was a nudist photographer of great fame, and a publisher of many nudist pamphlets and magazines showing the nudist lifetyle to the general public. As well as founding the publisher Elysium Growth Press, he was the founder and president of the Elysium Institute in Topanga Canyon, California, and a Vice-President of the International Naturist Federation. His free love ideals placed him in the sexual revolution movement of the 1960s and 1970s. He also was very active in the Western Sunbathing Association and in the first stirrings of the Free Beach movement in the 1960s in California. Lange was originally a fashion photographer who worked for Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Life magazines as well as a studio photographer at Paramount and Conde Nast in Los Angeles.
