William B. (“Billy”) Harris was a freelance dance and drama critic covering the downtown avant-garde for the SoHo Weekly, Village Voice, and other papers from the mid 1970s to his unexpected death in 2000.  He left behind an extraordinary archive, which his family and friends placed in the care of Marymount Manhattan College. His papers have much to say about theater history, the changing downtown neighborhoods, and the advent of AIDS in the community.

Mary Elizabeth Brown’s (she/her) first contact with Village Preservation was in the early 2000s when she researched the Italian South Village as part of the organization’s efforts to landmark the neighborhood. She works at the Center for Migration Studies of New York and at Marymount Manhattan College teaching and archiving. Her own publications are mostly on the intersection of Catholicism and Italian immigration in New York City. Her most recent publication was a chapter on “Social Welfare and Social Reform” for 2021’s The Cambridge Companion to American Catholicism
