The Montrose Gem

This page will feature downloadable and searchable PDF files related to Houston publisher
Henry McClurg's publication The Montrose Gem, lasting from 2005 through early 2011.
GEM stood for Gay Entertainment Magazine.
See the main McClurg Publication page.

Begun 1/21/05, it was first a small-size publication, growing to newspaper format by 2006. It was sold to
Michael Gaitz
, in 2010, with Deborah Bell as Editor, and when Gaitz died suddenly on Jan 31, 2011,
the paper was shut down, with the last issue #151 being 2/11/11.

During the paper's last year you could see an increase in the number of full-page bar ads and decrease in amount of "content." When Deborah Bell became Editor the content improved markedly but it was too late to stop the financial failing. See More

I have not had access yet to every issue, but this is a good cross-section over the years. If you
can provide other issues of his publications for scanning purposes, please contact me.
Access
to to these publications is courtesy of Gulf Coast Archive & Museum,
The Botts Collection
, and the Charles Armstrong Collection.
