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. Some titles featured include "The 'Other' Homosexuals" and "Donald Webster Cory on Homosexuality". Director of One Institute, W. Dorr Legg, examines the church's moral imperatives in proximity to the LGBTQ community in a passage titled "Toward A Higher Morality". One of the most important publications in the LGBTQ community, this archive is in very good condition.
