The bulk of the collection consists of the
photograph albums of Matthew Schmidt and Albert Antunes (pseudonyms: Matthew
and Buddy of Glendale). The early albums document the Los Angeles non-bar gay
scene from the mid-1960s to mid-1970s, and contain many photographs of the
elaborate costume parties the couple threw at their home. The later albums
document the couple's extensive world travels. The collection also includes a
small amount of printed and manuscript materials, including a 1934 letter to
Matthew Schmidt from Mae West.
