Hidden from History: Accessing the GLBT Past

12 Aug

Hidden from History: Accessing the GLBT Past is a survey and processing project at the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Historical Society in San Francisco. The project started in October 2011 and was funded by a generous grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC). The goals of the project include completing an electronic survey of all the Historical Society’s manuscript collections and processing half of the collections in its backlog. Ultimately, this project will give the Historical Society better physical and intellectual control over their manuscript collections and vastly improve access to them. Marjorie Bryer, the project  archivist, and Rebekah Kim, the managing archivist, will share their discoveries through this blog. The blog is currently under construction. Stay tuned to see the words and images from our collections that move us, inspire us and make us laugh.
