Carl Van Vechten (June 17, 1880 – December 21, 1964)

Carl Van Vechten was an American writer and photographer. He first married his longtime friend Anna Snyder and divorced in 1912. He wed actress Fania Marinoff in 1914. In 1919, he began a long-term relationship with Donald Angus, a 19-year-old lover of opera, who regularly accompanied the writer to nightclubs and parties in Harlem. Even after the intensity of their sexual relationship had cooled, Angus remained a close friend, not only of Van Vechten but also of his wife, until her death in 1971. Van Vechten also had a relationship with Mark Lutz, a journalist based in Virginia, with whom he exchanged daily letters for 33 years. He had one other long-lasting affair, with Saul Mauriber, a decorator and designer who eventually became his assistant and remained in this capacity for twenty years. Mauriber donated part of Carl Van Vechten’s archive to the Library of Congress, an invaluable contribution to LGBT history researcher.
