Series: 1:
Correspondence, 1964-2003

Physical Description: 4 Boxes, 3 Folders

Scope and Content Note

This series includes correspondence, the majority of which was exchanged between Prager and published gay male authors and others within the publishing industry. The most extensive and important exchanges were with Daniel Curzon (author of Something You Do in the Dark), Andrew Holleran (author of Dancer from the Dance), and Dirk Vanden (author of I Want It All). The content of these letters focuses on gay literature and the creative process as well as personal opinions and issues. A small number of letters are photocopies of correspondence from the personal collections of various authors including Daniel Curzon and Dirk Vanden. The authors are listed by pen names, real names follow in parantheses.
With the exception of Prager and Vanden, the authors of the letters have not been asked to provide the GLBTHS with copyrights to their correspondence; therefore, the correspondence may be read but may not be quoted or reproduced without the prior permission of the authors. Vanden has retained copyright of his correspondence until the time of his death, at which point it is to be transferred to the GLBTHS.
