Rex Maniscalco Collection of Bobby Smith Photographs [LGBT]

The Rex Maniscalco Collection of Bobby Smith Photographs and Other Materials primarily consists of photographs taken by Bobby Smith in the 1950's-1970's. Also included in this collection are videos of LGBT events within the years of 1993 -2000 as well as serials and programs printed during 1972-2007.

The photographs are a rare set of images taken by the late Bobby Smith. The first female “messenger boy,” and co-founder of the Metropolitan Community Church in Tampa, Bobby Smith’s personal and professional photographs include both portraits and “everyday” shots of the LGBT community. The collection consists of nearly 450 photographs documenting Tampa’s Gay and Lesbian communities from the 1950s to the 1970s. Images of popular hang-outs, such as Jack’s Place, Knotty Pine, Jimmie White's Tavern and the Brass Rail, are included. A small sample of the collection has been digitized and are available online.
