Biographical Note

Tony DeBlase, celebrated author, educator, publisher, and community organizer, was described as "perhaps the most transformational figure in the history of the leather community" by the Leather Hall of Fame. He released his most visible impact and legacy, the Leather Pride Flag, in 1989.

DeBlase was born and raised in northern Indiana. He had an AB in Biology from Earlham College (1964) and a PhD in Zoology from Oklahoma State University (1971). He wrote several instructional manuals and published a college textbook, A Manual of Mammalogy, in 1970. He taught at Earlham, OSU, and Roosevelt University in Chicago. He served in the administration of the Joseph Moore Museum at Earlham College, the Connor Prairie Museum, the Oklahoma State University of Zoology, and the Field Museum of Natural History until 1979.

While writing his dissertation, DeBlase began to publish SM fiction under the pseudonym Fledermaus. After retiring from the Field Museum, DeBlase directed his professional attention to the Leather community, BDSM education, and Desmodus Inc, the company he ran with his partner Dr. Andrew Charles. From 1986-1992, Desmodus produced DungeonMaster, Drummer, Mach, Tough Customers, The Sandmutopia Guardian, the International Mr Drummer contest, and Sandmutopia Supply Co., a mail order newsletter for SM supplies and media. DeBlase also created the Sandmutopia Leather University educational series. One reviewer described him as the "Julia Child of the Dungeon."

A member of the National Leather Association since the first Living in Leather, DeBlase served on the Executive Committee for seven years. He was a member of numerous Leather and LGBT organizations, a tireless organizer, writer, educator, and a familiar face at events all across the country. He writes that when a questionnaire was sent to him from the American Society of Mammalogists in 1989, he "dutifully reported" that his professional specialization concerned "what some might call 'aberrant' sexual behavior in one sex of one species: Homo sapiens males." He included as evidence of his work, "Electrotorture/Electropleasure", "SM is Safe Sex!" and other selections from his educational publications.

In 1992, DeBlase co-founded The Leather Archives and Museum with Chuck Renslow and started the Leather History Timeline.

DeBlase met his partner Dr Andrew V. Charles at the Second City MC New Year's party at midnight on December 31st 1975. He died at their home in Portland on July 21st 2000.

Honors recognizing DeBlase include:
NLA's Man of the Year, 1987.
Pantheon of Leather's Business Person of the Year Award, 1990.
Pantheon Reader's Choice award, 1994.
Pantheon's Forebear Award, 1997.
The Caligula Award from Chicago Hellfire Club, "for his service to the club in the development of Inferno", 1991.
Fledermaus Award established by the Chicago Hellfire Club to be awarded annually for long-term service to the club, 2001.
Induction into the Leather Hall of Fame, 2010.

Arrangement

An inventory reflective of the original order is available.

Personal and business records can be found mixed together throughout. Groups of loose papers were given supplied titles. Certain large files or sections of loose papers have been separated or sorted, as indicated in the file level arrangement information. Chicago Hellfire Club related documents have also been isolated to accommodate the CHC collection accession restrictions.

Folders were used and reused by DeBlase, sometimes layered with labels and titles. The labels have loosened and fallen off over time. Supplied titles have been provided in square brackets where the label had an unclear relationship to the contents of the file.
