The Mattachine Society, founded in 1950, was one of the earliest gay rights organizations in the United States, probably second only to Chicago's Society for Human Rights. Other independent groups using the name Mattachine were formed in Washington, D.C. (Mattachine Society of Washington, 1961), in Chicago (Mattachine Midwest, 1965), and in Buffalo (Mattachine Society of the Niagara Frontier, 1970). The rights and photos contained in this collection were gifted by the original founder of the Mattachine Society of the Niagara Frontier, Madeline Davis.
