What sort of items is GOHI interested in collecting?

Below is a partial list of possible items individuals or groups may like to give for inclusion in GOHI’s collection. The curatorial committee will review each item to make certain it meets established criteria for preservation. As more and more items are collected, the space and careful preservation required grows. Donations help offset GOHI’s costs for storage and cataloguing items in the collection:

  • Letters
  • Pictures
  • Documents
  • One-Dimensional Items
  • Two Dimensional Items
  • Three Dimensional Items
  • Oral Histories
  • Local Entertainers
  • Celebrity Memorabilia
  • Rural History
  • Urban History
  • Estates
  • Videos

What about other efforts to preserve history already in existence?

 Some groups in Ohio already have efforts to collect and preserve LGBT history underway. GOHI is intended to complement these efforts and will work together with all parties interested in preserving our history.
