The collection documents the personal and political life of Harvey Milk, and the personal life of Scott Smith. Milk's political papers include issue files from the Board of Supervisors, as well as speeches and campaign literature. The collection also includes materials of Harvey Milk Archives and Harvey Milk Estate. As Smith was the head of the Milk Archives and also Milk's executor, the latter materials have been organized into one series. The political papers and photographs series are the best documented portions of the collection. There is unfortunately not much on Milk's early life though there are a few documents on his mother. With the exception of the photographs, the bulk of the collection documents Milk's life on the West Coast. The photographs document Milk's and Smith's activities in the gay community.
