The collection contains a wide variety of erotic photographs, drawings, photographic reproductions, stories, catalogs, and
pamphlets collected by GLBTHS founder, Willie Walker.
Willie Walker was born in Fort Worth, Texas, on 2 February 1949; members of his family were long time residents of Texas.
Walker was raised in Fort Worth. His parents divorced in 1964 and shortly thereafter he moved with his mother to St. Louis,
Missouri. He joined his sister, Barb, and her family in Montana in 1967. He graduated from high school in Three Forks, Montana,
in 1968. Walker lived on-and-off in Montana until 1981; during this period, Walker attended the University of Montana and
Montana State University at Bozeman, where he earned a BS in nursing in 1979. While living in Montana, Walker also became
interested in local history and public history. In 1979 he was instrumental in founding the Butte/Silver Bow (Montana) Archives,
the designated repository for the non-current local government public records and a selection of records of private organizations.
