These, what were once called the Hall-Carpenter Archives I suppose, are valuable and I hope this move ensures their survival. Archive records for the pre-digital age may consume space and so be costly to retain but they are irreplacable. Let’s hope they have a happy stay and are used by our future historians.
I totally agree with your comments, but just to let you know LAGNA’s archives are mostly print media and are separate from the Hall-Carpenter Archives – which are stored at LSE.
The Hall-Carpenter archives at LSE are a major source for gay history in Britain.
