LEGAL COLLECTION, 1 Box (1 cu. ft.)
Material dates from 1912 to 1928.

The material consists of trial transcripts of trials of men for same-sex sodomy.  The cases of Harry Start and Edward McAllister date from 1912-1913 during the so-called “Vice Clique” scandal in Portland involving at least 68 men.  The case of Clarence Brazell dates from 1928 during another, smaller scandal.

Copies of the transcripts of the Start, McAllister, and Brazell transcripts were donated by Mr. Jeff Stookey.
The index of the Start, Wedemeyer, and McAllister transcripts and the corrections noted on the McAllister and Start transcripts were made by Mr. George Painter.
