Anonymous." The materials include articles by and about Marty Mann, Sally and David Brown's
research notes, materials from collaborators on Mann's biography, information regarding
Priscilla Peck, Mann's partner, interview transcripts, information on organizations that
deal with alcoholism, photographs, audio tapes and material devoted to other important
figures in the alcoholism movement and the early homosexual and lesbian movement.
