The Montreal Health Press fonds reflects the operations of a small, volunteer-run feminist collective, focussed on disseminating information on health and sexuality. The fonds documents the steps involved in print book production: it includes authors’ draft chapters, interview schedules and author contracts.
The records also reflect the collective's extensive promotional activities, including fund-raising programs, reviews of handbooks, promotional articles and anniversary-year publicity. Letters of support from subscribers testify to the publications’ impact on individual lives and sexual health. The fonds also shows the extensive orders and invoices for handbooks from North American health clinics and organizations.
The photographs and drawings reflect the work of numerous artists. Medical drawings–in ink, pencil and graphite–provide detail on sexual health and anatomy. The photographs represent individuals, couples, and groups of different ethnicity, ages and sexual orientation.
