Brown supplied this biographical note, "Producer of 1980's lesbian-feminist culture (including women's music concerts, Herizon homemovies, photography, and collage) and, in 1981, one of the first women to work on Capitol Hill as a broadcast news 'cameraman' (field producer/videographer.) She was also a radio producer, sound engineer, university instructor, media tech specialist, editor, queer media collector, writer, and advocate for social justice. As an active Herizon member (1982-1991) Del Brown worked to build, and document, this andmark 501c membership-only "women's social club." Herizon served as a lesbian community center, dance club, and safe lesbian and woman-centered social space, from 1975-1991 in Binghamton, NY." This series contains material from the 1987 and 1993 marches on Washington for Gay and Lesbian civil rights. This series also contains correspondence and photographs from Brown's friend Steven F.
