Several people have asked me about the options for receiving e-mails from the new H-Poland. On this issue the choices are the same as they have always been, but I believe that many subscribers were switched to the “daily digest” format by default during the migration. This means that you will receive only one email per day, containing all the posts from that day. Personally, I’ve always found it easier to receive each post as a separate e-mail, because then I can scan the subject lines to determine if I want to read further, instead of being forced to scroll down through every message.
Collection Name: Brent Nicholson Earle Papers, 1896-2003
Collection Description (from finding aid): In 1985, Earle planned The American Run for the End of AIDS (A.R.E.A.), a 10,000 mile run around the perimeter of the United States, which he ran from March 1986 to October 1987. On June 7, 1990 he set off from San Francisco and arrived in Vancouver, Canada on August 4 for the beginning of the third Gay Games held there that year. He was assisted in his AIDS activism by his mother, Marion Nicholson, until her death in 1991. On April 29, 1994, he left San Francisco, this time leading a 7-person team on the Rainbow Roll, a trek on rollerblades, carrying a rainbow flag through 22 cities and ending up in New York City on June 16 for the start of the fourth Gay Games. On each trek, Earle worked to raise awareness and knowledge about AIDS and to raise money for AIDS service organizations. In 1990, People Magazine named Earle one of its "20 individuals who shaped the 80's." He has continued work as an AIDS activist.
Informational and publicity materials about the 1986 American Run for the End of AIDS, the 1990 Rainbow Run for the End of Aids, and the 1994 Ranbow Roll, plus Earle's Christmas letters and cards sent to friends and supporters; occasional announcements and letters regarding ongoing activities of A.R.E.A; obituaries and a eulogy for Marion Nicholson; a copy of an article by Earle in New York Newsday about Magic Johnson; 2 A.R.E.A. t-shirts; a broadside; and other material related to his AIDS activism.
