Chris Almvig Collection

Identifier: MS-0178

Scope and Contents

The Chris Almvig Scrapbook was a gift of Chris Almvig in 2010. The centerpiece of this scrapbook is a memoir entitled Recollections of Flying out of the Closet, in which Almvig chronicles the period in her life when she came out as a lesbian and moved to Kansas City, where she became involved in the Women’s Liberation Union and other advocacy groups. The memoir is accompanied by an addendum of “Attachments” – Poems, Essays, Articles, etc. – that provide more background into relevant people and events. The collection also contains newsletters and information from the Kansas City Women’s Liberation Union, and flyers for Woman: Challenges and Choices Conference.
