The James Egan fonds contains records relating to his life and activism work from the early 50s to his memorial service in 2000. John Nesbit is also featured in subtle yet evident ways. There are newspaper clippings, correspondence with newspaper editors, other activists, academics, and other LGBTQ+ individuals, as well as serials, drafted articles for newspaper and tabloid publication, and various iterations of his court case with his partner John Nesbit. There are records of Egan’s environmental activism and of the time he spent in the Merchant Navy. There are photos relating to both Nesbit and Egan, their families, childhoods, and lives together. Poetry, fiction, a dream journal, cards, diaries and other such material recording Egan’s personal life and his life with Nesbit dot the fonds.
