Early Iowa State University and Ames, Iowa Gay Liberation Photographs: The Years 1977-1978

Sometime in late spring or early summer 1978 I moved from my shack in the country to 812 Burnett Street in Ames, my final Ames residence before moving to San Francisco. It was a great apartment, cheap rent for the time, and had the advantage of having David Halterman live upstairs, so it always seemed as though the entire house was a hub of gay activity.

I have tried to give credit to people who have helped by providing their cache of photos. If I have neglected anyone or mis-credited anybody, please notify me, as it is an oversight or error, not intentional. Some of these location photographs were taken on a return trip I made to Ames from San Francisco in 1980. The locations were still very similar to the 1970s then. I am told many of these buildings no longer exist.
