The San Francisco History Center's Biography Ephemera files contain folders on Harvey Milk, George Moscone, and Dan White.

Biographical note

Harvey Bernard Milk was born on May 22,1930, in Woodmere, New York. His parents were Minerva Karns and William Milk. His older brother was Robert Milk. Harvey graduated from the New York State Teachers College at Albany in 1951. He was in the U.S. Navy until 1955. He then worked briefly in New York on Wall Street and eventually became involved with the Tom O'Horgan shows Hair and Jesus Christ Superstar. He moved out to San Francisco in the early 1970s.
Harvey's political aspirations began with his unsuccessful campaigns for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1973 and 1975. Mayor George Moscone appointed Milk to the city's Board of Permit Appeals in 1976 though he had to resign from that position in the same year when he announced his candidacy for the California State Assembly. He lost the Assembly race as well. He was elected to the Board of Supervisors in November 1977. On January 9, 1978, Milk was sworn into office.
While in office, he cosponsored a gay rights ordinance, and was interested in the creation of a gay community center. His Supervisor issue files cover a wide variety of topics from the Briggs Initiative (Proposition 6) and divestment from South Africa to San Francisco parking facilities and the much-publicized Dog Litter law. Milk's life was cut short when Dan White assassinated him on November 27, 1978.
There are several biographical works about Milk. Most notable is The Mayor of Castro Street by Randy Shilts. The documentary The Times of Harvey Milk by Robert Epstein and Richard Schmeichen is also an excellent resource. Double Play by Mike Weiss recounts the killings of Milk and Moscone and includes transcripts of police documents. All of these books and videotapes are available in the San Francisco Public Library. The archival research for Double Play is also available at the San Francisco History Center of the San Francisco Public Library.

Scope and Contents

The collection is a mixture of the personal papers of Harvey Milk and Scott Smith, the political papers of Harvey Milk, and the collection of the Harvey Milk Archives and Harvey Milk Estate. As Smith was the head of the Milk Archives and also Milk's executor, the latter materials have been organized into one series. The political papers and photographs series are the best documented portions of the collection. The political papers include drafts of speeches and writings, as well as the flyers and other ephemera which a campaign produces. There is unfortunately not much on Milk's early life though there are a few documents on his mother. With the exception of the photographs, the bulk of the collection documents Milk's life on the West Coast.

Arrangement

The collection is arranged into six series: Series 1. Harvey Milk's personal papers; Series 2. Harvey Milk's political papers; Series 3. Scott Smith's personal papers; Series 4. Materials relating to the Harvey Milk Archives and his estate; Series 5. Photographic materials; and Series 6. Clippings and ephemera. Most series are arranged alphabetically by folder title, and materials are filed chronologically within each folder; the photographic series is organized by slide program when possible, and by folder title in all other cases.

Series 5 Photographs, Albums, Slides and Negatives, 1930-1995

Physical Description: 7.5 cubic feet

Scope and Contents

The series is being reorganized.
The photographic prints section is arranged chronologically for the most part. Personal and Milk family photographs appear at the beginning, followed by political campaign prints, and then images taken and collected by Harvey Milk and Scott Smith. Images of Milk's boyfriends are filed by name under the heading "Lover" and are arranged chronologically. Many images collected by Harvey and Scott are arranged in a rough chronological order. Subjects include gay pride parades, Castro Street fairs, Gay Games II, and the dedication of Harvey Milk Plaza.
The scrapbooks and slide programs are organized by number with titles to describe the subjects covered. The scrapbooks cover such varied subjects as Korea, the 1976 Assembly campaign, and a cabaret show. Some of the slides had been arranged into programs with subjects covering vacations, attractive men, and theater productions such as Hair or Jesus Christ Superstar. Loose slides were organized by subject; some of these are sexually explicit.
As there is no master index to this series, it is worthwhile to look within each section for a given subject. Some of the notable photographers represented in the collection are Dan Nicoletta, Tom Eure, Rink, and Crawford Barton.

Arrangement

Arranged by three subseries according to format: photographic prints and negatives, scrapbooks, and slide programs.

Access

The photographs available during Photo Desk hours.

Harvey Milk: Second Sight exhibition (slides, transparencies, captions)

 

Series 6 Newspapers and Ephemera, 1971-1990s

Physical Description: 7.0 boxes (2 cartons, 4 oversized flat boxes, 1 card file shoe box)

Arrangement

The series is arranged into 3 sections: Clippings; Flat Newspapers; and Ephemera. The Clippings and Flat Newspapers are arranged chronologically. The Ephemera is arranged alphabetically by title.

Scope and Contents

Includes coverage of Milk's campaigns, some interviews with Milk, and some general stories about gay issues and marches. Also includes issues of the Bay Area Reporter with Milk's column "Milk Forum." Coverage from June 1977-November 1978 includes gay rights debates relating to Proposition 6, also known as the Briggs Initiative, which would have banned gay and lesbian teachers in California. Milk and Sally Gearhart debated John Briggs in October 1978. Coverage in November 1978 focuses on the assassinations of Milk and George Moscone, and May 1979 centers on the trial of Dan White and the riot that followed the jury's verdict. Many of the clippings from 1982 discuss The Mayor of Castro Street by Randy Shilts. The Flat Newspapers are in rough chronological order and often include the front sections of newspapers covering Milk.
The ephemera includes an audiorecording, buttons for Milk's campaigns, a medal, and a bumper sticker for George Moscone.
