Abstract: The Saint was a gay superclub in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York, open between 1980 and 1988. The club was owned by Bruce Mailman, an entrepreneur who also owned the New St. Marks Baths in the East Village, and designed by architect Charles Terrell. The Saint was initially a private membership nightclub, eventually allowing non-members to attend on certain nights. After the club closed in 1988, it continued as The Saint At Large, holding events at other nightclubs in Manhattan. The Tim Smith Collection on The Saint contains material collected by Smith during his time as a member (1981-1988) and throughout the existence of The Saint At Large. The collection contains print ephemera housed in scrapbooks, digitized ephemera, photographs, and writings, as well as almost 1000 sound recordings on disc.
