Robert John Quinn's Memorial Books, Volume R


Robert John Quinn's Memorial Books, Volume R


This is the digitized nineteenth volume, or binder, of Robert John Quinn's Memorial Books. This volume largely includes obituaries of individuals with a last name that starts with the letter "R."

See the index at the end of the PDF file to search for specific names. 

About this collection: Many of the obituaries and memorials in this collection of scrapbooks specify that individuals died of AIDS or AIDS-related illnesses. However, there are obituaries included in these scrapbooks for victims of hate crimes, of individuals who died of other illnesses or accidents, and some obituaries where the cause of death is not included. Sexual orientation, gender identity, and HIV/AIDS status, if not clearly stated, should not be assumed or implied of anyone in this collection. 

If for any reason you find an obituary that you wish to have removed from this digital collection, please contact The History Project at with the person's name and reason for removal.
