John-Manuel Andriote interviewed nearly 200 individuals for his 1999 book, Victory Deferred: how AIDS changed gay life in America. In the book’s preface he stated, “I wrote Victory Deferred because, despite the abundance of books written about AIDS, no one until now has examined both the ‘big picture’ and its finer details in considering the many ways AIDS affected the nation’s hardest hit community, gay men.”
Andriote donated his interviews and research materials to the Archives Center in 2008. The Victory Deferred collection is a comprehensive resource of personal histories of the epidemic.
