    Scope and Content of Collection

    This collection contains 30 years of correspondence from friends and family to gay activist Samuel Robinson “Rob” Montague. Montague (b. 1946) lived in San Francisco from 1976-2003. He was active in LGBT Jewish circles, and local and union politics. Montague was a board member and president of congregations Sha’ar Zahov and Ahavat Shalom. He was involved in “No on 6” efforts and the Human Rights Coalition and was office manager for Jimmy Carter’s primary campaign in California. Montague worked for the United States Department of Health and Human Services for 20 years and was president of National Treasury Employees Union Chapter 212. He was on the bargaining team that negotiated the first union contract in the federal sector that barred discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. After leaving San Francisco, Montague divided his time between Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Kansas City, Kansas. The bulk of the collection is personal correspondence. It also includes a short autobiography and Montague’s annotated description of his correspondents, through April, 1996.
