Law and Sexuality

A commentary and resource on Law and Sexuality by Professor Chris Ashford and guests

Hall-Carpenter Archives

Having got back from San Francisco at the start of the week, I spent the end of of the week down in London on more archive work – this time at the Hall-Carpenter Archives, which are based at the London School of Economics. It was the first time I’d used the archives and I was impressed with the diversity and quality of the archive. You can read a history of the archive here. The archive is described as ‘the largest source for the study of gay activism in Britain which followed the publication of the Wolfenden Report in 1957’. I’d also like to praise the LSE library staff – they were without exception, incredibly helpful, flexible and supportive. Thanks guys.
