Abstract

Collection of The Dallas Way organizational papers, correspondence, clippings, publications, media, and a framed artifact.

Accretions, arranged as series, include a collection of papers, correspondence, clippings, photographs, and publications.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Jack Evans and George E. Harris Collection consists primarily of materials that document agendas, meetings, and events of The Dallas Way. Both Jack Evans and George E. Harris, founders of The Dallas Way, are vested in the documentation of Dallas GLBT history and the creation of organizations such as The Dallas Way serve as a vehicle for voices that would otherwise be lost to time. The mission statement of the Dallas Way echoes this sentiment by noting that "gathering, organizing, storing, and presenting" the history of Dallas GLBT history is of high importance. And through the use of many mediums, narratives of the Dallas GLBT community detail may different viewpoints: legal, social, religious, the arts, health, politics, the Latino community, fund-raising efforts, business, rural, personal, and area icons.  (The Dallas Way Conceptual Organization Chart, {Jack Evans and George E. Harris Collection (The Dallas Way)}, University of North Texas Special Collections).
