Smithsonian to receive Matthew Shepard Collection

Judy and Dennis Shepard to donate historic collection 20 years after their son's death

by Cathy Renna - Special to the SGN

On Thursday, October 25, the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History will receive a donation of papers and personal objects from the parents of Matthew Shepard, a young, gay college student who died of severe injuries following a vicious attack in October 1998 in Laramie, Wyoming.

The National Museum of American History will receive a donation from Judy and Dennis Shepard representing the life of their son Matthew Shepard who died in Laramie, Wyoming on October 12, 1998, due to severe injuries he sustained during the vicious attack.

The Shepards will donate personal papers highlighting Matthew's school life from elementary through college, theater scripts, photographs, correspondence and notebooks, as well as a number of objects, including a child-sized Superman cape, sandals, a wedding ring and purple ribbon award.

Students from George Mason University's School of Theater will perform excerpts from The Laramie Project by Mois├ęs Kaufman and the Tectonic Theater Project. A brief panel discussion will follow.
