St Andrews Raunchy Rectors
St Andrews has had its share of outrageous Rectors. The One brings you the best.
The One bring you the best of a scandalous lot. If only Durham was as colorful.
Fridtjof Nansen, Rector from 1925-1928. In short a promiscuous man.
Nansen has done it all, circumnavigating the globe, winning a Nobel Peace, searching for the North-East passage. Other hobbies include pruning his mustache or taking raunchy pictures with his American lovers.
Nansen, 67 at the time, was sending these photos to a girl 30 years his junior.
This information has been revealed in a new book Brenda, My Darling which celebrates the 150th Anniversary of Nansen’s birth.
other notaries include Arthur James Balfour: author of the controversial Balfour Declaration.
Fredrick Hamilton: claimed that a ghost saved his life from a falling elevator.
Douglas Haig: a brave but suicidal man that walked thousands of British soldiers to their deaths in no man’s land during World War I.
Robert Boothby: a promiscuous bisexual who had an illicit affair with cat burglar Leslie Holt. It was also alleged that Boothby took part in wild homosexual orgies.
