Boxes 1-9

Series 1 Research files 1974-1990 1977-1984

Physical Description: Approximately 9 linear feet (9 boxes of textual materials and 1 folder of photographs)

Series Scope and Content Summary

Subject files pertain primarily to the gay and lesbian community in San Francisco. Alfred used his research files for journal articles and The Gay Live , his radio talk show. Topics include political, sexual, sultural, and religious subjects, such as gay liberation and mainstream gay political organizations; sado-masochism, bisexuality, and man-boy love; books and film; gay religious organizations; gay businesses and community organizations; local and national political leaders; academic issues and professional interests. A small number of subject files concern gay and lesbian life in other major American cities and foreign countries. Alfred's writing on a variety of subjects, from nuclear power initiatives to mayoral contests, always looked at issues from the perspective of the gay and lesbian community, and the impacts of particular issues on gays and lesbians.
Materials in this series include handwritten and typed correspondence, both incoming and outgoing; note cards; drafts of articles; surveys; state and municipal reports; magazine articles; book reviews; pamphlets; campaign ephemera; fliers from events, rallies, and demonstrations; and clippings.
Of particular note in this series are several files documenting the trial of the individuals who murdered Robert Hillsborough in 1977, a hate crime clearly motivated by Anita Bryant's homophobic campaigns. Alfred covered the trials for the Bay Times and KSAN-FM radio and took extensive notes while in the courtroom.
The series also includes 3 folders of photographs of Harvey Milk and others, and 1978 gay pride parades in San Francisco and Berkeley. In the final 2 boxes of this series are files containing clippings, articles, and printed ephemera concerning AIDS, Alfred's AIDS-related correspondence and notes, and reports from conferences and seminars. AIDS-related materials primarily cover the period 1981-1987. Several files at the end of box 9 relate to the KSAN-FM radio program The Gay Life .

Arrangement

Files are arranged alphabetically by subject, with 2 boxes of chronologically arranged files on the AIDS epidemic, and several files on The Gay Life at the end.

Other Finding Aids

A list of the file headings in this series is available at the GLBT Historical Society.

Processing Note
