    Title: Stuart Szidak photographs
    Identifier/Call Number: Coll2012-024
    Physical Description: 127 photographs. Color photographic prints
    Date (inclusive): 1981-1985, undated

    Processing Information

    Although the photographs are believed to have come from one photograph album, the images of the Christopher Street West pride parade and of friends gathering are of a less certain identification with Stuart Szidak.

    Acquisition Information

    Photographs may have come to the International Gay & Lesbian Archives in 1991 after the passing of Stuart Szidak.

    Custodial History

    The name Stuart Szidak derives from a name on the back of one of the photographs (a group shot) with a request for more copies. A letter in the collection addressed to "Stu" from "David" adds to the evidence that the materials were once the possession of Stuart Szidak.
