Reagan Diana Wilson (born March 6, 1947) is an American model and actress who was Playboy magazine's Playmate of the Month for its October 1967 issue. Her centerfold was photographed by Ron Vogel.
Wilson was born in Torrance, California, and attended Roosevelt Elementary School in Santa Monica. After her parents' divorce, she relocated to Missoula, Montana with her mother, younger brother and sister. She studied journalism at the University of Montana.
Wilson began working as a model after relocating to Los Angeles, California in the late 1960s. She made her film debut the 1971 horror film Blood Mania with fellow Playmate Vicki Peters, and later appeared in the 1973 film Running with the Devil. After, Wilson would relocate to New York City where she did further modeling work, followed by jobs in Paris and London.
In 1968, Wilson appeared at a Men's Day event at the University of Washington in Seattle, which also featured a concert by Phil Ochs. Wilson was criticized for her appearance by feminist organizers, who chanted "Reagan Wilson, you are an empty vessel" at the event.
In November 1969, a nude photo of Wilson made a trip to the Moon. As a joke, NASA ground staff hid a small nude photo of her (along with fellow playmates Angela Dorian, Cynthia Myers and Leslie Bianchini) inside the schedule of Apollo 12's mission commander, Pete Conrad. Although it is certain that the photo made the trip to the lunar surface aboard the Lunar Module, it is not known if it was taken outside for the moonwalk. Pete Conrad was the third man to walk on the Moon.
Wilson again posed nude for Playboy for the December 1979 pictorial "Playmates Forever!"
