Wanted: People to attend the Elliott Blackstone Testimonial Dinner [imitation of a wanted poster]

San Francisco: Elliott Blackstone Testimonial Dinner Committee, n.d. 11x17 inch poster depicting Blackstone in uniform, neat horizontal fold crease, otherwise very good.

Blackstone was the San Francisco Police Department’s first liaison with the LGBT community, starting in 1962. He was widely hailed for his work to transform police policies, though he was not himself gay. He worked with groups such as the Mattachine Society, Daughters of Bilitis, Vanguard, the National Transsexual Counseling Unit, and the Council on Religion and the Homosexual. This poster may be from around the time of his retirement in 1975.
