Scope and Contents:
On the cover are featured Thomas Hennings Jr. and Robert Hutchins, with "Homosexual Rights" heading.
Biographical / Historical:
In January 1953, a small group of tenacious men published the first issue of _ONE Magazine_, the first openly distributed publication focused on issues facing homosexuals in America. In the following years, the magazine's distribution grew well into the thousands and quickly spawned ONE, Incorporated to produce the magazine and pursue additional research and educational efforts. In his new book, _Pre-Gay L.A.: A Social History of the Movement for Homosexual Rights_, C. Todd White traces the histories of this magazine, ONE, Inc., their founders, and several related organizations in a thoroughly detailed narrative. White posits that although many activists and historians may see New York, with the events at Stonewall, and San Francisco, with its large and iconic gay community, as the epicenters of the gay rights movement from 1969 on, Los Angeles was actually the original home to the modern movement. (Christine M. Lamberson, review of C. Todd White. Pre-Gay L.A.: A Social History of the Movement for Homosexual Rights. Urbana University of Illinois Press, 2009. xvii + 258 pp. Published on H-California (March, 2010)

Arrangement:
This collection is in chronological order.
Biographical / Historical:
Sharon Christa McAuliffe (1948-1986) was selected from more than 11,000 applicants to become the first private citizen to fly on the Space Shuttle as part of the Teacher in Space Program. McAuliffe was assigned to be part of the crew of Space Shuttle Mission STS-51L aboard the Challenger (OV-99) and was scheduled to conduct experiments as well as teach lessons from space that would be broadcast to schoolchildren via closed-circuit television. On January 28, 1986, the Challenger exploded 73 seconds after launch when a external fuel booster failed. All seven members of the crew died.

Marcia Holland was a teacher at Central Middle School in Kansas City, Kansas who wrote a letter to Christa McAuliffe wishing her well and telling her that Holland's students were keeping journals similar to that McAuliffe planned to keep during her flight onboard the Space Shuttle.
