OutHistory.org Seeks Data on 4 Stonewall Arrestees

06 Jun 2011 12:15 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)
In June 2009, on the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, OutHistory.org first published nine pages of New York City Police Department records.

These records for the first time revealed the names of four previously unknown persons arrested during the course of the rebellion, one woman and three men.

In June 2011, OutHistory is appealing for information about any of those four persons: Marilyn Fowler, Vincent DePaul, Wolfgang Podolski, and Thomas Staton.

Perhaps New York City-area phonebooks from 1969 would reveal old addresses, perhaps the Social Security Death Index would reveal information, perhaps friends of the arrestees will come forward with evidence. 

If you discover any information  about the four arrestees, please send that information to Jonathan Ned Katz at OutHistory.org at: outhistory@gc.cuny.edu
