In June 2014, the Secretary of the Interior announced the NPS¿s commitment to fund a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) theme study as part of the NPS¿s LGBT Heritage Initiative to explore how the legacy of lesbians, gays, bisexual, transgendered, individuals can be recognized, preserved, and interpreted for future generations. The Secretary shared news of the study during a meeting outside of the Stonewall Inn, a National Historic Landmark (NHL) in lower Manhattan, which bears testimony to the emergence of the modern gay rights movement. There, on June 29, 1969, gay patrons and their allies resisted one of many repeated police raids on the bar, asserting their rights to equal protection under the law and protesting discrimination based on sexual orientation. Though the police subdued street violence after several days, the Stonewall ¿riots¿ inspired a new spirit of activism, including the first Pride parade in New York commemorating the event¿s first anniversary in 1970. The National Historic Landmarks Program is currently working with scholars and community advocates to develop a framework for identifying and interpreting sites which depict LBGT history and the realization of our collective vision for equal rights throughout the nation. This project will build on new and existing work about LGBT history that can serve as both contextual and evaluative tools in identifying sites associated with the interests and accomplishments of LGBT people in the greater New York area, which has served as an important cultural and political center of LGBT culture for more than a century. This project will identify new properties, as well as to identify and interpret LGBT themes at existing National Park Service and National Historic Landmark sites that connect the experiences of LGBT people to our national narrative. This inventory of sites and property analyses will identify sites for NHL designation and contribute to the preservation and interpretation of these nationally significant resources. RECIPIENT INVOLVEMENT a. Work with the staff in Preservation Assistance of the NPS Northeast Region to complete an inventory of sites in the greater New York area for potential NHL designation based on associations with LGBT history and to develop Letters of Inquiry to initiate formal evaluation for designation as NHLs by the National Historic Landmarks Committee of the National Parks Advisory Board; b. Work with NPS to develop a detailed scope of work, based on Article I of this task agreement that will be used to identify appropriate scholars and task their work. c. Engage an appropriate scholar to undertake the work and act as the liaison between the NPS and the scholar; d. Ensure that the final survey and evaluative essays/Letters of Inquiry are prepared as a scholarly report meeting the standards of the historical profession and of the Landmark Committee process for designating properties, including coordination of agency and peer review comments and provision of editorial services; e. Make the report available to its membership, as well as the public more broadly, and promote the report within its professional networks so as to make the report as widely available as possible to scholars of American History, so that those scholars and teachers may use the report¿s findings in their teaching and writing, to the benefit of not only the scholarly community but students at many levels; f. Promote, to its membership and through its professional networks, any use by NPS of the report in its management and planning, so as to draw attention to its continued efforts to make the presentation and practice of American History within NPS as informed, current, and professional as possible, which is a core mission of the OAH. NATIONAL PARK SERVICE INVOLVEMENT Substantial involvement on the part the National Park Service is anticipated for the successful completion of the objectives to be funded by this award. In particular, the National Park Service will be responsible for the following: a. Work with the OAH to develop a detailed scope of work, based on Article I of this task agreement, for the scholar to follow in order to complete the inventory and condition assessment report; b. Work with the OAH in selecting the scholar(s) to conduct the research; c. Provide the scholar with relevant NHL documentation, including copies of all relevant property nominations and updates in the study area, and direct the scholar to repositories for existing inventories and analyses; d. Work with the OAH and the selected scholar to identify one to four surveyed sites for more extensive evaluation as potential NHLS; e. Review the progress of the research to ensure relevance and quality; f. Coordination submission of the report to the NHL Program (WASO) and make the research available to park managers and the general public for use in management and planning. The OAH and the NPS agree to work cooperatively on the project on a regular basis for the purpose of providing guidance to the scholars(s), monitoring work, providing input, and setting or adjusting priorities.
