Nearly five years ago, Judy and Bruce Reeves helped establish the Gulf Coast Archive & Museum of GLBT History in their residence near downtown. Even after the community museum moved to its present West Main location, the Reeveses continued to house the bulk of the archives in warehouse space adjacent to their home. Now the Reeveses plan to sell the property, and GCAM seeks storage space.
Reeves hopes an individual or firm with climate-controlled storage space or a warehouse will donate room for the archives. “To date, we have 19 shelves, each on casters and capable of holding 18 regular file boxes,” she says. “We need to find a new home for this valuable material, and we need to find it very quickly”
Reeves points out that because GCAM is a nonprofit organization, a donor could realize tax benefits. Interested persons can reach her at 713/227-5973, ext. 1.
