Correspondence related to the successful effort to remove "homosexuality" from archaic and disparaging headings in the National Library of Medicine's classification systems, 1974-1978, and the World Health Organization's International Classification of Disease, 1985-1991. The projects were championed by Marjorie Greenfield, a lesbian woman, Philadelphia Metropolitan Hospital librarian, and member of the Gay and Lesbian Task Force of the American Library Association.
