An Annotated Anthology of the Newspaper Columns of Politician and Activist Harvey Milk (1930-1978)

Preparation of a critical anthology of the journalism of gay politician and activist Harvey Milk (1930-1978).

The goal of this study is to present Milk’s words to the world in a concisely-constructed and publicly-accessible volume. This NEH Summer Stipend would assist in the completion of a critically-annotated anthology of the complete run of late LGBTQ activist Harvey Milk’s serialized biweekly column for the most influential San Francisco LGBTQ paper of the 1970s, the Bay Area Reporter. Milk’s column, “Milk Forum,” appeared in the Bay Area Reporter from May 15, 1974 until November 22, 1978, the week before his assassination (109 columns total).
