Of the more than five hundred questionnaires sent out, one hundred sixty completed replies were received over the following twelve months, of which one hundred fifty-seven were considered usable.

From the editorial which introduces this issue: "The editors of Homophile Studies take considerable pride in being able to present, complete in this issue, one of the most remarkable sets of legal documents relevant to homosexuality that has come to our attention...The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control in March, 1956, charged 'Mary's First and Last Chance,' a bar located in Oakland, with violating...the State Business and Professions Code, which explicitly penalized the using of such premises 'as a resort for prostitutes, pimps, panderers, or sexual perverts.'"

The six court documents that are reprinted in this issue stem from that case, as follows: 1) Brief of Amicicuriae on behalf of Appellants; 2) Appellants Closing Brief; 3) Court Decision; 4) Appeal; 5) Petition for Modification of Opinion Without Change in the Judgement, and Petition for Rehearing; and, 6) 'Exhibit B' to previous Petition.
