The bulk of the collection consists of photographs that document the life and family history of Italian-American hairdresser and entrepreneur, Gaetano "Guy" Duca (1936-1989). Duca was from Philadelphia but lived in San Francisco for 25 years before succumbing to AIDS. He received a general discharge from the US Navy in 1955 for socializing with another sailor who was dishonorably discharged on moral charges.
