Biographical Information

Nancy Elaine Stoller was born in 1942 in Newport News, Virginia. In 1960 she left Virginia to attend Wellesley College in Wellesley, Massachusetts, where she earned an A.B. in Philosophy in 1963. She went on to earn her M.A. (1965) and Ph.D. (1972) in Sociology from Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. From 1978-1980 she was a Post-doctoral fellow at Yale University. Stoller started her job at University of California (UC) Santa Cruz in 1973 and received tenure in 1987 after having filed a gender discrimination suit against the University. Stoller worked and published under her married name, Nancy Shaw, for many years before reclaiming Stoller in the 1990s. Along with her work on AIDS, Stoller's research has focused on women, prisoners, and health care.
Stoller became involved with the civil rights movement during her first year of college. She was involved in local actions in Wellesley and Boston during the school year and worked with the Washington D.CIRCA area Non-violent Action Group (DC-NAG) during the summer. Later she became involved with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and did organizing work in Maryland and Arkansas. Her activism continued throughout her life. In a recent, short, online biography she states:
I have been involved in various social change movements: anti-racism, feminism, anti-apartheid work, queer organizing, women's health activism, working on changing prison conditions, prison abolition, and so on.
After a brief marriage to Kevin (Kwame) Shaw (1966-1972) and the birth of her daughter, Gwendolyn, in 1968, Stoller came out as a lesbian. She was one of the first openly lesbian professors at UC Santa Cruz (UCSC) and was outed internationally during her tenure fight.
Between her dismissal from UC Santa Cruz in 1984 and her reinstatement in 1987, Stoller worked as the Women's Program Development Director within the Education Department of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation (SFAF) from 1984 to 1987. While there she was involved with a number of projects including heterosexual focus groups, the drafting of a number of pamphlets, and the organization of women's support groups. This work led to further interactions with a variety of community based AIDS organizations. She did a formal participant/observer study of the New York City ACT-UP chapter in the fall/winter of 1989. She went to meetings and demonstrations, including the St. Patrick's Cathedral demonstration held in the December of that year.
Stoller also spent significant time working with Cal-PEP, the California Prostitutes Education Project, an AIDS prevention and education organization founded and run by prostitutes and former prostitutes to prevent the spread of AIDS within that community. Stoller served as an advisor to the Executive Director of the organization, as well as doing a stint on the Board of Directors. Other groups that she had contact with during this period include: Prevention Point, a Needle Exchange program working with Intravenous (IV) Drug Users; the Women's AIDS Network (WAN), and Women's AIDS Risk Network (WARN).
Stoller translated her experience working for SFAF and her interest in other AIDS related community organizations into two books on AIDS - Lessons from the Damned: Queers, Whores and Junkies Respond to AIDS published in 1998 and Women Resisting AIDS: Feminist Strategies of Empowerment (1995) co-edited by Stoller with Beth E. Schneider of UC Santa Barbara. Stoller wrote the chapter on "Lesbian Involvement in the AIDS Epidemic: Changing Roles and Generational Differences" in Women Resisting AIDS After returning to the UCSC campus she has taught classes in Transgressive Sexualities and Genders, Health and Human Rights in Prison, and Theory and Practice of Sexual Politics. The majority of Stoller's ongoing research has been into the treatment of women prisoners, especially in relation to medical care. She was also involved in an outreach study on breast cancer in the Latina community. As of 2005 Stoller is still teaching at UCSC and living in San Francisco.

Scope and Content of Collection

This collection consists predominantly of the research files used by Nancy Stoller in the writing of two books and a number of academic papers, and in teaching at the University of California Santa Cruz (UCSC). A high percentage of the collection is secondary source material including: newspaper and magazine articles, scholarly papers, documents (primarily minutes, publications, and other administrative or publicity materials) from a variety of community based, AIDS related organizations; a few posters; and a very extensive pamphlet collection. Primary documents include: drafts and published versions of papers written or co-written by Stoller, drafts of chapters and correspondence from Lessons from the Damned: Queers, Whores and Junkies Respond to AIDS, correspondence connected to Women Resisting AIDS: Feminist Strategies of Empowerment (1995), various handwritten notes, and two participant-observer notebooks from her time with ACT-UP New York. The collection also includes a small sampling of condoms and stickers, including some from Amsterdam, as well as dental dams and a leather harness for the dams. A small amount of material documenting some of her other research topics, as well as her later career at UCSC, can be found near the end of the collection. For material relating to Nancy Elaine Stoller (Nancy Stoller Shaw's) tenure battle with UCSC see the Nancy Shaw collection at the Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender Historical Society.
Stoller's interest in AIDS, as shown by her subject files, ranged widely beyond the gay white male model of the early epidemicirca Stoller collected popular and academic articles, pamphlets, clippings, organizational files, and other materials on Asian Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, African Americans, multicultural, and international issues. South Africa is represented by a series of posters and some other ephemera. Australia is represented by a number of research articles from Macquarie University, and the Netherlands (Holland) is represented by stickers and condoms as well as conference materials. A significant portion of the subject files concern women's issues including children and AIDS, education, heterosexual transmission, lesbians, perinatal transmission and pregnancy, prostitution, and women and AIDS. Ethics, demographics and the religious response are also covered.
The collection contains significant amounts of material on a number of agencies and organizations. The big three are the San Francisco AIDS Foundation (SFAF); the California Prostitute Education Project (Cal-PEP); and ACT-UP New York. Other organizations represented by multiple folders-worth of materials include: ACHA (American College Health Association - Task Force on the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS); APHA (American Public Health Association); City of New York and City of San Francisco Commissions on Human Rights; NSBC (National Skills Building Conference); WARN (Women and AIDS Risk Network); and University AIDS Events (and papers) from UCSF, UCB, UCSC, SFSU, and Macquarie University in Australia.
Other agencies and organizations documented to a greater or lesser extent include: AAPCHO (Association of Asian/Pacific Community Health Organization); AIDS Action Pledge, San Francisco; AIDS Health Project, San Francisco; California AIDS Project; SAMHA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health in AIDS); Santa Cruz AIDS Project; the Stop AIDS Project, San Francisco; WORLD (Women Organized to Respond to Life-threatening Diseases); AIDS Action Council; CARE AIDS (Prevention for Substance Abuse Treatment Programs, New York); Gay Men's Health Crisis [New York]; the National Gay Task Force (NGTF); and the New York City Task Force on Women & AIDS.
The collection is divided into 5 Series, based primarily on Stoller's own division of materials, and most of Stoller's folder headings and order have been retained, with occasional renaming of folders or subseries for clarity, and order imposed within or between topics/series/subseries when the original order was absent or unclear.
The series are: Series I: AIDS Subject Files; Series II: Organizations; Series III: Writings; Series IV: Administrative, Prison and Non-AIDS Files; Series V: Ephemera. Some of these series include subseries.

Container List


Series 1 AIDS Subject Files 1981-1995

Physical Description: 144 Folders : Carton 1 Folders 1/1-1/71, Carton 2 Folders 2/1-2/73

Scope and Content Note

This series consists of a variety of materials, from handwritten notes to newspaper clippings, arranged alphabetically by subject. Almost all of the material directly addresses AIDS or HIV infection; those that don't were clearly collected as background information on the subject. Other types of documents include photocopies of newspaper and magazine articles, whole magazines, scholarly papers, working documents or reports, statistical reports, some pamphlets or pamphlet drafts [see pamphlet subseries in the Ephemera Series for more pamphlets], etcetera Some individual items appear in more than one folder, because Stoller classified them that way. Information on similar topics can be found under different subject headings (i.e. even though there is a separate subject heading on "Prostitutes," a folder on "Women in the Sex Industry" can be found under "Women & AIDS.") Besides the Media subject file, which consists primarily of newspaper Clippings, several of the other subject files also contain "Media" folders and/or clippings mixed in with other documents. There are some drafts of articles in this series; see also Series III: Writings, for more materials written by Stoller.
The subjects are arranged alphabetically and include: Asian-Americans and AIDS, Children and AIDS, Education, Epidemiology and Demographics, Ethics, Funding for AIDS Organizations, Heterosexuals and AIDS, International AIDS Conferences, International Concerns / AIDS and other Countries, Latino Issues, Lesbians, Media, Multicultural Concerns, Perinatal AIDS and Pregnancy , Prisoners and AIDS, Prostitution, PWA (People with AIDS), Religion, Research Articles, Resources, Risk, Safe(r) Sex, Treatment Issues, Women & AIDS, Workplace Issues, and AIDS Miscellaneous.
Of special note are: 2 interviews in "Asian-Americans & AIDS - General Articles" folder; A draft of The Mental Health Impact of AIDS on Campus: A Handbook for College and University Counselors submitted to NIH in October 1987 by Johnson, Bassin & Shaw, Inc; and a photocopy of a photograph in the "Multicultural Concerns - Photocopy of Group Photo" folder, that appears to be of the Outreach Committee, mentioned in the previous folder.
Wherever possible, original folder titles have been preserved.

Series 2 Organizations 1984-1995

Physical Description: 263 Folders : Cartons 3-7 Folders 3/1-7/14

Scope and Content Note

This series contains materials similar to those found in the subject files, but Stoller classified them by organization rather than subject. There are fewer newspaper clippings and more minutes and other administrative documents in this Series. Quantity and quality of materials in this series range from a single fundraising letter from The Names Project to an extensive collection of San Francisco AIDS Foundation documents.
This series is further subdivided into 6 subseries, The first two subseries consist of an aggregate of organizations on which Stoller has amassed a small or medium amount of material, the next 3 subseries each represent one of the organizations that Stoller actively worked with/observed during her hiatus from UCSCIRCA The final subseries contains materials from several Women's Organizations. The subseries are: A. Geographical (Small); B. Alphabetical (Medium); Subseries C: SFAF; Subseries D: CAL-PEP (California Prostitutes Education Project); Subseries E: ACT-UP New York City; Subseries F: Women's Organizations.
This is a modification of Stoller's order. She had the organizations with just one or two folders of information separated from the those with a large or middle-sized amount of folders. The large and mid-sized groupings were in no distinguishable order. The organizations with the largest number of folders (which correspond to the groups in which Stoller was most active) have been given individual sub-series for ease in description. Stoller appeared to have kept the various women's related organizations together, so this was retained as the final subseries.

Subseries 2.1 Geographical (Small) 1984-1993

Physical Description: 36 Folders : Carton 3 Folders 3/1-3/36

Scope and Content Note

This subseries contains from one to two folders on each of a number of AIDS organizations or AIDS related projects of non-AIDS specific organizations. There is also one folder of material from the American Family Association, a right wing propaganda organization denouncing gays and AIDS. The materials in this subseries vary greatly, The Gay Men's Health Crisis folder contains only a single letter from Stoller, while the National Gay Task Force, the California and Santa Cruz AIDS Projects, and a few other organizations take up two folders each. The subseries is arranged alphabetically by regional subdivisions: Northern California/Bay Area Organizations, Southern California, and New York and National Groups.
Of special note are the following: The AAPCHO (Association of Asian/Pacific Community Health Organization) folder includes information on the film "Behind the Masks: AIDS... It Affects All of Us." The AWARE Study folder contains information on a UCSF Study for which Stoller was a consultant and Constance Wofsy was principal investigator. SAMHA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health in AIDS) was another cooperative project between UCSF, UCB and Hunter's Point organizations. The Santa Cruz AIDS Project material includes AIDS Prevention in Public Sex Environments (1990). The CARE AIDS Prevention for Substance Abuse Treatment Programs folder contains AIDS Prevention for Substance Abuse Treatment Programs, published by the State of New York.

Physical Description: 66 Folders : Carton 3 Folders 3/37-3/68 ; Carton 4 Folders 4/1-4/34

Scope and Content Note

This subseries consists of the organizations that Stoller acquired and kept a mid-sized amount of information on. These organizations include: ACHA (American College Health Association - Task Force on the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS)), APHA (American Public Health Association), the City of New York and the San Francisco Commissions on Human Rights (HRC), NSBC (National Skills Building Conference), a number of universities (including UCSF, UCSC, UCB, SFSU, and MacQuarie University in Australia), and San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH).
The ACHA material concerns institutional issues and includes a "Partnering Agreement" with the CDC and a grant application to the American Foundation for AIDS Research.
APHA "General" file includes Stoller's membership card and other membership materials. The APHA "California Models" file contains a paper by that name along with changes and the Women AIDS - Straight Talk project funding proposal. The New York HRC files include three 1987 Reports by the HRC (at least one of them also in another folder); a series of pamphlets in English and Spanish was moved to the Ephemera Series. The National Skills Building Conference (NSBC) was an annual gathering sponsored by the AIDS National Interfaith Network, National Association of People with AIDS, and the National Minority AIDS Council. The UCSF files contain, among other things, material on the Sept. 13-14, 1985, Administrative and Clinical Issues of Mental Health Conference, and a follow up conference in 1988. There are also drafts and proofs of the article "Women & AIDS" by Shaw and Paleo, in What to do About AIDS, that grew out of the conference. The Social and Behavioral Sciences Department folder includes information on Nancy Stoller Shaw's appointment as "Visiting Lecturer without Salary" at the UCSF Nursing School. The MacQuarie University files includes a large number of papers and reports on studies on gay and bisexual men, co-sponsored by the Australian University and an Australian Government Agency. The San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) files include a folder of handwritten notes from one or more meetings that Stoller held with Florence (Flo) Stroud on Women & AIDS.

Series 3 Writings 1987-1996

Physical Description: 39 Folders : Carton 7 Folders 7/15-7/49 ; Carton 8 Folders 8/1-8/4

Scope and Content Note

This series consists primarily of drafts and background materials for Stoller's 1998 book Lessons From the Damned. These files are arranged by chapter and/or subject and were kept separately from the other subject files by Stoller. Also in this series are other writings by Stoller, and materials concerning Women Resisting AIDS: Feminist Strategies of Empowerment, eds. Schneider & Stoller, Temple University Press, 1995. The Lessons From the Damned material is arranged by chapter &/or topic and material on each chapter includes drafts of the chapter along with assorted articles, clippings, and other research materials that Stoller had pulled together as reference for that chapter. Some of these materials may also be found elsewhere in the collection, primarily in the subject or organizational files. The first folder contains correspondence concerning the book. The final few folders contain miscellaneous examples of Stoller's other written work and files concerning the reviewing of books and presentations by Stoller.
Of special interest are interviews with Vito Russo (the pages of this interview were not in order, apparently on purpose) and Larry Kramer. The "Syringe Exchange (1987-1995)" folder is also of note since it contains material of both national and international scope.

Series 4 Administrative, Prison, and Non-AIDS Files 1985-1995

Physical Description: 11 Folders : Carton 8 Folders 8/5-8/15

Scope and Content Note

This series contains materials that don't fit easily into the other categories; many of these files/items came in the second donation/acquisition of this collection. The "AIDS and Prisoners" file contains a cover letter addressed to Urvashi Vaid at the National Prison Project of the ACLU. There are also several files concerning legal actions on behalf of specific prisoners and correspondence to, from, and about prisoners, that are restricted. The material concerning the October 8, 1985, AIDS Update for Health Care Practitioners in the California Department of Corrections, conference, which was sponsored by SFAF, Sacramento AIDS Foundation, and the California Department of Corrections, should be of special interest. The primary non-AIDS files refer to a 1993 Grant Proposal for a Latina Peer Outreach (Breast Cancer) Project in which Stoller was involved. The other files of particular interest include a 1995 file concerning Stoller's promotion to full professor at UCSC, and the final folder in the series which contains a bilingual poem Ligartija/Lizard" by Elba Rosario Sanchez, with an ink drawing by Robert Ciarito.

The earliest materials in the subseries appear to be 3 posters from ADAPT (Funded by New York City Dept. of Health" with the theme AIDS is a death sentence) that are probably from the 1984/1985 period.
