In his more than 30 year volunteer career with the CLGA Alan has been our one of our volunteer Leads, specializing in the LGBTQ Serials Collection. Out of the few boxes in the basement of the Body Politic in the 1970’s, Alan has built the collection of the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives into the largest periodicals collection of its kind in the world.
Alan regularly works with researchers, students and volunteers on Thursdays and Sundays weekly at the Archives. In 2010 he hosted a walking tour for Jane’s Walk Toronto where he demonstrated his enthusiasm and vast knowledge of this queer history in Toronto.
Congratulations Alan! and thank you for your tremendous contributions to the Archives!
