Series 1: Homophile Organizations, 1941-1975

Physical Description: 12 Boxes

Scope and Content Note

This series includes documents pertaining to the United States homophile movement, which flourished between 1951 and 1969 in several major cities, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Washington DC, and Denver. The homophile movement focused on improving the situation of American homosexuals through educating heterosexuals and homosexuals, pushing for legal reform, and building relationships with expert opinion-makers in the fields of law, religion, policing, and psychology. Because Lucas was a member of the Mattachine Society (post-1953), CRH, and SIR, it is those organizations that are primarily represented within this series.

Arrangement

There are six subseries within this series: A. Mattachine Foundation; B. Mattachine Society; C. Pan-Graphic Press; D. Council on Religion and the Homosexual (CRH); E. Society for Individual Rights (SIR); F. Other Homophile Organizations.
 

Subseries A: Mattachine Foundation, 1951-1953

Physical Description: 6 Folders

Scope and Content Note

The Mattachine Foundation was the first incarnation of the Mattachine Society. Founded in 1951, it dissolved in May 1953, making way for the Mattachine Society. This subseries contains a small cache of files relating to administration of the Foundation. In particular, this subseries documents the stated goals of the Foundation; it also documents the internal controversy that led to calls for the democratization of the Foundation's leadership by its rank-and-file members.

Series 2: Anti-Poverty Programs, 1962-1976

Physical Description: 6 Boxes

Scope and Content Note

This series contains files relating to the administration of anti-poverty programs along with documents pertaining to organizations that dealt with poverty-related problems, like alcoholism, drug abuse, and prostitution, in San Francisco. The vast majority of files are from the Central City Target Area of the San Francisco EOC, of which Lucas was director from 1967 through 1969. Only a portion of this series contains documents that deal directly with sexuality and homosexuality in particular; however, researchers will note that many anti-poverty programs, especially those located in Central City, addressed problems associated with homosexuality in the context of and alongside other social issues that were considered problematic in the late 1960s.

Arrangement

There are five subseries within this series: A. Economic Opportunity Council of San Francisco; B. Economic Opportunity Council Target Areas; C. Central City Target Area; D. Other Anti-Poverty Organizations and Programs; E. Miscellaneous Anti-Poverty Files.
