Biographical Note

Nancy (Bunny) MacCulloch was born on August 13, 1928 in Salem, Massachusetts. She relocated with her partner to California. While watching television coverage of the 1977 International Women's Year MacCulloch decided to become active in the lesbian women's movement. She was interviewed for the documentary, Before Stonewall (1984). She joined Southern California Women for Understanding (SCWU) where she meet June Mazer. She also volunteered her time with Connexxus, the West Hollywood women's center and the West Coast Lesbian Collections. Mazer, MacCulloch, and others arranged to have the West Coast Lesbian Collections (WCLC) relocated to Los Angeles. After Mazer's passing in 1987, the WCLC was renamed the June Mazer Lesbian Archives. MacCulloch continued to work to grow the collection and make it available to researchers. MacCulloch died in 1989.
