Abstract:

The George Whitmore Papers primarily contains his writings and supporting research files, including guidebooks, clipping files, and interview transcripts, although there is a small amount of professional correspondence and a few personal papers. Whitmore's writings span his academic years through his career as a freelance journalist, but nearly half of the collection consists of his creative writings, many of which were not published during his lifetime. He wrote stories and criticism for several gay periodicals, including The Body Politic, Christopher Street, and the San Francisco Advocate, and his book-length study of Henry Thoreau was published by the Gay Academic Union in 1977-1978. Whitmore also worked in fiction throughout his life, composing poetry and short stories that were published in both gay and straight periodicals, as well as issued under his own imprint, the Free Milk Fund Press. Three of his plays were produced in New York between 1976 and 1980, and three novels were published there: The Confessions of Danny Slocum (1980), Deep Dish (serialized between 1980 and 1982), and Nebraska (1987). In the 1980s, Whitmore worked as a freelance reporter and features writer for popular magazines and newspapers including Travel and Leisure, House and Garden, House Beautiful, and the New York Times; his specialty was covering people, places, and events connected with art, design, and architecture. Between the mid-1980s and his death, he wrote three interrelated articles and one book that focused on the human face of AIDS, including his 1988 volume, Someone Was Here: Profiles in the AIDS Epidemic. Most of Whitmore's literary works reflect his close connection with contemporary gay culture in tone and subject, particularly his AIDS-related writings. Among his literary contributions were extensive published interviews with authors William S. Burroughs, Martin Duberman, Tennessee Williams, Edmund White, and the performer Patti LaBelle. He also interviewed Sybil Sassoon, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley, at her home, Houghton Hall, in Norfolk, England.
