Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Contains materials collected by historian Martin Meeker. The collection includes audiotapes of oral histories, including the “Go West” interviews Meeker conducted for his dissertation and book, “Contacts Desired: Gay and Lesbian Communications and Community, 1940s-1970s”; and slides from his presentation, “Communication, Migration and the Making of the Homosexual Communities in the 1950s and 1960s.” The subject files, ephemera and news clippings were a gift to Meeker from Bill Tellman, who was a painter and Chuck Arnett’s “widow.”
