This digital exhibit was produced in collaboration by Dr. Tamar Carroll, Associate Professor and Department Chair of History at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), Kadin Benjamin, an RIT Digital Humanities and Social Sciences student researcher, and Max Zinkin, a Brighton High School student researcher, with assistance from Rebekah Walker, the RIT Digital Humanities and Social Sciences Librarian. We are so grateful to past members of the Lambda Network at Kodak: Chuck Collins, Thomas "Tom" Fox, Emily Jones, David Kosel, Nancy Laurie, Kathryn Rivers, Dan Sapper, and Faye Wilbur for their contributions of photos, videos, documents, and oral histories and for what they did to help improve the lives of LGBTQ people, inside and outside of Kodak. Additionally, we are grateful to the late Evelyn Bailey, Out Alliance Historian and Rochester LGBTQ Community Archivist, for helping us reach past Lambda Network members, granting us access to archived interviews of past members, and her extensive support and documentation of Rochester's LGBTQ community.
