Miriam Ben-Shalom Papers, 1971-1999

Arrangement of the Materials

Ben-Shalom organized the majority of the collection chronologically under the general heading of "Homosexuality." These chronological files contain material on a variety of topics and consist of news clippings, brochures, flyers, organizational newsletters, and correspondence. Archivists arranged loose material into subject-specific folders (e.g., "Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Veterans of America" and "Milwaukee Lesbian Gay Pride Committee"). Researchers are encouraged to explore both subject-specific folders and the general files.
