In 1958 after four years of litigation, the Supreme Court declared One was not in violation of any obscenity laws. After closing publication in 1967, One Institute became a national archive for LGBTQ material. Wrappers of each issue are uniquely decorated with illustrations, photos, and bold monochromatic lettering. Titles of the issues include "Men Who Find Lesbians Desirable", "Homobeatniks", and "Bring Your Own Bikini!". One passage titled "The Successful Homosexual" illuminates an interview held between Chuck Taylor and police officer, Patrick Connor. In it, he details he experiences as a gay cop, the positives and negatives. One of the most important publications in the LGBTQ community, this archive is in very good condition.
