Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Ronald H. Schmidt papers document his activism on behalf of LGBT students in the Morgan Hill Unified School District. Schmidt, who taught middle school, was the first openly gay teacher in the district and had battled with school officials over gay and lesbian issues long before he publicly came out. He was an active member of many organizations, including the Bay Area Network of Gay and Lesbian Educators (BANGLE), the GLBT caucus of the California Teachers Association (CTA), and the Arts Council of Gay and Lesbian San Jose. Schmidt was also a journalist for Our Paper Your Paper, an LGBT newspaper from Santa Clara County.
