Physical Description: 1.3 linear feet

Subseries Scope and Content Summary

This subsubseries comprises the correspondence of Joseph Killian, the first acting chairman and president of Dignity. As a principal founder of Dignity, Killian maintained an extensive international correspondence.

A significant portion of the correspondence with private individuals is of a personal nature, offering support, advice, and personal stories of the dynamics and complexities of being gay and Roman Catholic. The Correspondence with Clergy files contain Killian's correspondence with gay and gay-supportive priests and clergymen of other denominations. The Personal files contain personal materials relating to Killian, including his diary, speeches on the history of Dignity, and the order of service for his funeral mass. The documents are arranged alphabetically by last name, when known; correspondence with individuals whose last name is not known is interfiled using the first name.

Subseries 4.2:  Los Angeles, CA 1970-1997 (bulk 1971-1985)

Physical Description: 3.1 linear feet

Subseries Scope and Content Summary

This subseries contains the records of the Los Angeles chapter of Dignity, which were separated from those of the other chapters because of their bulk. Although Dignity was founded in San Diego, the Los Angeles chapter, founded later the same year (1969), soon became larger--indeed, from shortly after its inception it has always been the largest chapter in the organization-and functioned as a de facto central administration before the National Office was created. The subseries therefore contains some materials that can be considered appropriate to the National Office. The subseries is divided into two subsubseries: (1) General Correspondence, and (2) Subject Files.

Series 5:  Newsweek Advertisement 1987-1988

Physical Description: 1.5 linear feet

Series Scope and Content Summary

This series documents the circumstances surrounding a full-page advertisement placed by Dignity in the April 27, 1987, issue of Newsweek magazine at a cost of $25,289.41, in response to the Vatican's October 30, 1986, letter on homosexuality that prohibited Dignity chapters from meeting or celebrating mass on any church property. The materials include correspondence with Newsweek, and with Time magazine, which refused to publish the advertisement. The advertisement elicited considerable response. Many of the supportive replies were accompanied by donations; many of the unfavorable replies, written on clippings of the advertisement itself, are homophobic and full of profanity and sexual epithets.

Subseries Scope and Content Summary

This subseries contains the newsletters published by each Dignity chapter.

Issues of chapter newsletters found elsewhere in the collection have been removed and consolidated in this subseries.

Issues of the periodical Insight: A Quarterly of Gay Catholic Opinion, are included in the file for the New York chapter, which published it.
