Christopher Cox papers, 1927-1990 (bulk 1966-1990).

The Christopher Cox Papers consists of the writings, correspondence files, appointment books, and personal papers of the writer, editor, director, and producer Christopher Cox, and of his partner William Olander, an art historian and museum curator. With their highly descriptive homoerotic writings and visual material, Cox's papers chronicle gay culture, lifestyles, and literature in New York during the 1970s and 1980s, as well as Off-Off-Broadway theatre in the 1970s. He also was active as a travel writer, and his files hold documentary material on his travels, including guidebooks and a small collection of foreign currency. William Olander's papers primarily consist of his research files and writings related to his academic and curatorial work, as well as a set of appointment books covering the last decade of his life.
