This collection consists of eight handwritten personal diaries kept by Jason Howard between 1978 and 1994. Born in Pittsburgh
in 1952, Howard moved to New York in 1975 for the adventures of the city's emerging gay culture. He moved to San Francisco
in 1979 and worked at St. Francis Hospital and at the University of California, San Francisco.
The collection is under some restrictions until November 5, 2022. It is open for research, but researchers may not reveal
names or personal information about people discussed in the journals until that date has passed.
