Life
Who: Pearl Minnie Harchovsky (April 7, 1890 - March 22, 1975) aka Pearl M. Hart and Valerie Taylor (September 7, 1913 – October 22, 1997)
Pearl M. Hart was an ardent defender of gay rights, appearing on behalf of many victims of entrapment and harassment, often without fee or for minimal fee. She worked for anti-entrapment laws and the right to privacy. She was involved in the founding and work of the present Mattachine Society as well as its predecessor and focused on the Chicago Police Department and its historic entrapment of gays. Valerie Taylor was an American author of books published in the lesbian pulp fiction genre, as well as poetry and novels after the "golden age" of lesbian pulp fiction. She was born Velma Nacella Young and also published as Nacella Young, Francine Davenport, and Velma Tate. Her publishers included Naiad Press, Banned Books, Universal, Gold Medal Books, Womanpress, Ace and Midwood-Tower. In 1965 she met Pearl Hart, another founder of Mattachine Midwest. They were together until 1975 when Hart died. Taylor lived in an apartment at 540 W Surf St, Chicago, IL 60657, around the corner from Hart, the heart of the" gay ghetto" of Chicago at that time, but close to Hart. Not being an immediate family member, Taylor was not allowed to visit Hart in the hospital as she was dying and missed being able to tell her goodbye. She had to appeal to a friend of Hart's but by the time she was able to see her, Hart was in a coma. When Pearl Hart died in February, 1975, Taylor moved to 3356 N Claremont Ave, Chicago, IL 60618, but soon after she moved again to Margaretville, New York, in October 1975 to be near friends Hank and Ada Mayer's Catskills farm. In 1979, she moved again to Tucson, initially at the guest house of La Casa Nuestra (2433 N Dodge Blvd, Tucson, AZ 85716), a private lesbian club, but then, in 1980, to 3751 E Grant Rd, Tucson, AZ 85716, where she lived until hospitalized after a fall on October 10, 1997. She died on October 22, 1997, in a Tucson hospice.
