ONE continues to achieve remarkable milestones in our quest to collect, protect
and share the history of LGBT people!

ONE Art Interns Uncover
4,000 works by LGBT
artists in our collection is 75% completed!
Whether created by the famous (such as Andy Warhol, Kate

Susan McCullough, David Frantz & Mia Locks

Millet, or Herb Ritts) or at the community level, the works provide fascinating
visual insight to LGBT culture over six decades.
Also remarkable is the fact that the ONE Art Project was made possible entirely
by gifts from individuals! Only with your support can ONE Archives collect the
unique history of LGBT life and culture.
Please make a generous gift to ONE today and help all of ONE’s treasures come to
light.

To see some of the images and hear Mia Locks talk about the ONE Art Collection,
ONE Archives relies on people like you to make our work possible.
Whether you are giving for the first time or giving again, many thanks for your
support!

Beginning October 2011, you’ll be able to see many of ONE Archives’ art treasures
during the Getty’s “Pacific Standard Time” collaboration, bringing together more
than sixty cultural institutions throughout Southern California to tell the story
of the birth of the Los Angeles art scene and how it became a new force in the
art world. ONE Archives is the only LGBT institution invited to participate. You’ll
be hearing more about the exhibit!
If you would like to talk to someone about your gift or about including ONE Archives
in your will, please contact Tracy Moore at [email protected]

Morris Kight Collection
Yields Surprise

By Michael C. Oliveira, MLIS
While processing the personal papers of an individual or couple, ONE’s archivists
sometimes find “collections within collections.” These embedded collections are
commonly family records such as correspondence and photographs. However, in processing
the Morris Kight papers, we found more than 200 photographs purchased by Kight in
the early 1980s. The photographs, according to Kight, were from “two old gay men”
who “were selling off their disposable materials.” The majority of the photographs
are of United States Naval personnel stationed on Kwajalein Atoll.
The photographs from Kwajalein document the service of one of the “old gay men”
toward the end of World War II. These photographs include shots of airfield personal,
transport planes, blimps and bombers, along with aerial photographs of the island
and United States Navy ships. The photographs also document the camaraderie of the
personnel on base and at the beach.
Along with these photographs are several from World War I through the depression
era. The photographs include images from Camp Zachary Taylor in Kentucky and others
of women wearing Red Cross aprons, bathing suits and cowboy/western attire. All
in all, these photographs provide a fascinating look at tranquil moments amid the
violence of war.
