A. Everett Austin, Jr. (December 18, 1900 – March 29, 1957)

Arthur Everett Austin, Jr. was the innovative and pacesetting director of the Wadsworth Atheneum from 1927 through 1944. Austin's visionary gift included persistence in the introduction of then-modern theater and modern design and especially contemporaneous art. Salvador Dalí, Alexander Calder, and Gertrude Stein benefited from his advocacy. Austin was appointed director of the Wadsworth Atheneum at the age of 26, and simultaneously joined the staff of Trinity College, Hartford, where he founded the fine arts department and taught throughout his tenure while director of the Wadsworth. In 1929, Austin married Helen Goodwin in Paris. The Goodwins were among the founders of Hartford, and related to and closely allied with the family of Hartford-born J. Pierpont Morgan, one of the Wadsworth Atheneum's great benefactors. Eventually they both realized that Chick’s affairs with Tommy Hughes, Jim Hellyar and others were becoming public knowledge and that they were headed for public scandal. Helen agreed that it would be wise if Chick left Hartford. When in 1947 he was offered the directorship of the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, which held the largest collection of baroque paintings in the country, he accepted, and took off for Florida with Jim. He and Helen remained friends, confidants, and married for the next ten years. But when he became ill with cancer he returned to Hartford and died with Helen and his two grown children, but not Jim, at his bedside.

Christina, Queen of Sweden (December 18, 1626 – April 19, 1689)

Ebba Larsdotter Sparre was a Swedish lady-in-waiting and noble. She is known as the intimate friend of Queen Christina of Sweden. Most of Christina's spare time was spent with 'la belle comtesse' - and she often called attention to her beauty. She introduced her to the English ambassador Bulstrode Whitelocke as her 'bed-fellow', assuring him that Sparre's intellect was as striking as her body. When Christina left Sweden, she continued to write passionate love-letters to Sparre, in which she told her that she would always love her. However, such emotional letters were relatively common at that time, and Christina would use the same style when writing to women she had never met, but whose writings she admired. Sparre was the only female favorite of Christina.

Timeline & Places:

• December 18, 1626: born.

• April 19, 1689: died. Buried at St Pietro, Piazza San Pietro, 00120 Città del Vaticano

Cliff Tucker (December 18, 1912 - May 21, 1993)

Cliff Tucker was a British executive, magistrate and politician. He was educated at Monmouth School and St David's College, Lampeter. One of his first jobs after graduation was for Imperial Chemical Industries, but he moved, in 1946, to British Petroleum, and was loyal to that company until his retirement. His partner of 35 years was the gay-rights activist and literary critic A.E. “Tony” Dyson. In 1959 Dyson, together with C.B. Cox, founded the literary journal Critical Quarterly, described in New Pelican Guide to English Literature as "probably the most influential English literary-critical journal in the academic field over the post-war decades". Dyson followed Tucker's wishes and bequeathed the proceeds of their Hampstead home to Tucker's alma mater, which had become the University of Wales, Lampeter. As a result, there is now a scholarship for a Research Degree in History at the university named in Tucker's honour. In 1996, the construction of the new Cliff Tucker Lecture Theatre was also funded by the bequest, a public lecture series started in the Autumn of 2005, and a Dyson Fellowship in Poetry also launched that year. The Papers of Tony Dyson and of his partner, Cliff Tucker, are housed at the University of Manchester John Rylands Library Special Collections. A further box of his papers is held at LSE Archives.

Daniel Pinkham (June 5, 1923 – December 18, 2006)

Daniel Rogers Pinkham, Jr. was an American composer, organist, and harpsichordist. His longtime partner was the organist Andrew Paul Holman. "In June 2007 would have marked our 30th year together. We had a great relationship. In July of 2004, we were married at Cambridge City Hall, after a courtship of 27 years. While the first things that may pop into our minds are his laughter and story-telling, the legacy of Daniel Pinkham will be his voluminous catalog of works, his highly successful teaching career, his notable career as a performer, and his tenure of 42 years as Music Director of King’s Chapel where many of new works had their tryouts and first hearing. In our age of specialization, it is increasingly rare to find such a combination — composer, teacher, performer, conductor — successfully executed by one man. Dan was from that great and ancient line of musicians who bridged all these fields. His knowledge as a music historian informed his own works. And he in turn imparted much of that knowledge to his students for more than 60 years." --Andrew Paul Holman at Dan's Memorial Service, January 20, 2007, King's Chapel, Boston.

Hal Call (September, 1917 - December 18, 2000)

Harold Leland "Hal" Call (September 1917–December 18, 2000) was an American businessman and LGBT rights activist. Born and raised in Grundy County, Missouri, Call enrolled in the University of Missouri in 1935 on a scholarship. He studied journalism. Call enlisted in the United States Army in June 1941 as a private. He was promoted to sergeant within the year and, after completing Officer Candidate School was promoted to lieutenant. He saw combat in the Pacific Theater, where he was wounded and received the Purple Heart. Returning to the United States in 1945, Call left the Army at the rank of captain and returned to the University of Missouri to complete his journalism degree. After graduating Call worked for several news outlets, including the Kansas City Star. In August 1952, while working for the Star, Call was arrested for "lewd conduct" and paid an $800 bribe to have the charges dismissed. Call resigned his job and he and his lover Jack moved to San Francisco. With his arrival in the city, Call became involved with the Mattachine Society, the first sustained gay rights group in the United States. Following the resignations of the original leadership in 1953, Call became president of the Society. Call frequently appeared on local television programs in the 1950s, one of the few openly gay men who spoke about gay issues, and appeared both in The Rejected, the first-ever television documentary on homosexuality, and "CBS Reports: The Homosexuals", the first network broadcast on the subject.

Joe Carstairs (1900 – December 18, 1993)

Dolly Wilde was an Anglo-Irish socialite, made famous by her family connections and her reputation as a witty conversationalist. Her charm and humor made her a popular guest at salons in Paris between the wars, standing out even in a social circle known for its flamboyant talkers. Wilde was the only child of Oscar Wilde's older brother, Willie. She was born 3 months after the scandal. In 1914, she travelled to France in order to drive an ambulance in World War I. About 1917 or 1918, while both were living in Paris, she had an affair with one of her fellow ambulance drivers, Standard Oil heiress Marion or Betty "Joe" Carstairs, at the time 17, who in the 1920s became a speedboat racer and was known as "the fastest woman on water." Joe Carstairs married once to a childhood friend, the French aristocrat Count Jacques de Pret, on January 7, 1918, in Paris. The purpose of the marriage was simply to allow Carstairs access to her trust fund independently of her mother. After her mother's death, the marriage was immediately annulled on the grounds of non-consummation. Other than Dolly Wilde, Joe Carstairs had numerous affairs with women including a string of actresses, most notably Tallulah Bankhead and Marlene Dietrich.

John Fletcher (December 18, 1579 – August 28, 1625)

John Fletcher (1579–1625) was a Jacobean playwright. Following William Shakespeare as house playwright for the King's Men, he was among the most prolific and influential dramatists of his day; both during his lifetime and in the early Restoration, his fame rivalled Shakespeare's. Though his reputation has been far eclipsed since, Fletcher remains an important transitional figure between the Elizabethan popular tradition and the popular drama of the Restoration. At the beginning of his career, his most important association was with Francis Beaumont. The two wrote together for close to a decade, first for the children and then for the King's Men. According to an anecdote transmitted or invented by John Aubrey, they also lived together (in Bankside), sharing clothes and having "one wench in the house between them." This domestic arrangement, if it existed, was ended by Beaumont's marriage in 1613, and their dramatic partnership ended after Beaumont fell ill, probably of a stroke, the same year.

Timeline & Places:

• December 18, 1579: born.

• 1590s: attended University Of Cambridge, Cambridge CB2, Regno Unito

• August 28, 1625: died. Buried at Southwark Cathedral, London Bridge, London SE1 9DA, Regno Unito

Louis Moreau Gottschalk (May 8, 1829 – December 18, 1869)

The music of Louis Moreau Gottschalk presaged the ragtime of Scott Joplin and other African American musicians. "The Great Galloping Gottschalk" was a superlative showman, traveling the world with his flamboyant musical spectaculars. One of his works, Night in the Tropics, was designed to be performed by eighty pianists on forty pianos. Gottschalk’s primary relationships, both sexually and emotionally, were with men, and a 1994 biography establishes him as homosexual. He was interred at the Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York. His burial spot was originally marked by a magnificent marble monument, topped by an "Angel of Music" statue, which was irreparably damaged by vandals in 1959. The Green-Wood Cemetery is seeking donations to restore the monument in his honor, the cost of which they estimate at $200,000.

• May 8, 1829: born.

• 1842: attended Conservatoire de Paris, 209 Avenue Jean Jaurès, 75019 Paris, Francia

Xuan Dieu (February 2, 1916 – December 18, 1985)

Ngô Xuân Diệu was a prominent Vietnamese poet. A colossal figure in modern Vietnamese literature, he wrote about 450 poems (largely in posthumous manuscripts) especially love poems, several short stories, and many notes, essays, and literary criticisms. Although well known for his love poems, he was married for only six months without consummating the marriage before divorcing from his wife and died a bachelor. Many people believe that he was homosexual along with his lifelong friend the famous poet Huy Cận, as shown through his many poems about love dedicated to (and apparently addressed to) various men. These poems include Tình trai (Man's Love, about the love affair between the French poets Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine) and Em đi (You leave, a heartfelt poem dedicated to a younger man with whom the poet shared a house for several years). For two years (1938-1940), Xuân Diệu was Huy Cận's roommate at the College of Agriculture in Hanoi, from which he received his engineering degree in agricultural science in 1943.
