This collection contains personal photograph albums and scrapbooks compiled by longtime San Francisco, Potrero Hill resident
Ramon Contreras. Originally from Los Angeles, Contreras (1942-2000) moved to San Francisco in the late 1960s or early 1970s
and worked as a court clerk. There are personal photos of close friends, family, parties and camping trips to the Russian
River; notes, postcards and a small amount of correspondence; invitations to parties and ephemera. The scrapbooks also contain
materials belonging to Contreras’ lover of 10 years, John Fred Boyer, who died in 1991.
