Abstract
On July 25, 2010, New York Times book reviewer Patricia Cohen announced an electrifying book soon to be released: Secret Historian: The Life and Times of Samuel Steward, Professor, Tattoo Artist and Sexual Renegade. This biography by Justin Spring contains the long-hidden tales of Steward, a "Sexual Outlaw on the Gay Frontier," as Cohen titled her review. Such a revelation of the "secret history" of "gay life in the middle decades of the 20th century," as she describes Spring's book, has, not surprisingly, excited the liberal and homosexualist press.
