THE COMPANION, VOLUME XXV, NO. 8., SEPTEMBER 1961
Shot solo by 22-year-old Jack Fritscher, the black-and-white Cover Photograph of the missionary, Father Bernard Foschini, published in conjunction with 4-page lead feature article/interview written by Jack Fritscher regarding third world vocations and the heroic Father Foschini. The Companion of Saint Francis and Saint Anthony is published by the Conventual Franciscan Fathers, Toronto.

With his initiation into national publishing through the American pop culture of the Catholic press, Jack Fritscher began his writing and photography career in journalism with a long series of short fiction, feature articles, interviews, news stories, reviews, and photographs. Fritscher has written that the Catholic press with its emphasis on masculine men as athletes, priests, soldiers, martyrs, and heroes provided pages of fertile incubation for his gay male and sadomasochistic imagination. A long-time editor and writer for the bi-weekly, coated-stock slick news magazine, The Josephinum Review, Fritscher's first two-page interior photography spread, titled, "The Long Last Days before the Priesthood: Story for School's End," appeared in The Josephinum Review, May 22, 1963, pages 4 and 5. The 23-year-old Fritscher's storyboard design layout consisted of 12 black-and-white photographs he cast, directed, and shot of a pensive 25-year-old blond seminarian waiting out the last weeks before his ordination to the priesthood. Although Fritscher was still "pre-gay" by four years, the gay subtext of the photo spread is adroitly coded in photograph #6 which shows the blond seminarian, stripped to the waist, floating in close-up of pecs, broad shoulders, and a face just breaking the quiet surface of a pool, with the Whitmanesque caption: "And I will wonder/that I do not die,/giving glory/immersed/in the torrents of Him." Fritscher wrote the 62-line blank verse poem that he then wrapped as text around his twelve photographs. Fritscher's mentor in the Catholic press was also the straight editor for The Josephinum Review, the Reverend Leonard J. Fick.



DRUMMER #21, VOLUME 3, NUMBER 21, MARCH 1977
Cover photo, shot by partner/lovers Jack Fritscher and David Sparrow, features famed San Francisco pianist John Trowbridge, nude with hairy torso behind bars with sunlight, shot by Sparrow-Fritscher at bunkers at north end of Golden Gate bridge to illustrate Jack Fritscher lead feature articles: "Prison Blues: Confessions of a Prison Tour Junkie" with 4 photographs of Trowbridge and David Wychoff printed as "negatives." Additional photograph shot solo at Stanford University by Jack Fritscher: "Royal Canadian Mounted Policeman in Boots," p. 27.

Historical background: David Andrew Sparrow and Jack Fritscher met on July 4, 1969 and were lovers, partners, and housemates through May, 1979, after which David Sparrow dropped completely from publication. In 1970, Jack Fritscher and David Sparrow appeared together as San Francisco's first leathersex models in Whipcrack Magazine, Vol. No. 1, in 34 photographs--including back cover--shot by Walt Jebe who owned Castro's first camera shop, predating Harvey Milk by nearly 10 years. David Sparrow lived from May 7, 1945 to February 20, 1992.

John Trowbridge, cafe pianist, was one of the co-founders of San Francisco's first uniform club, The Pacific Drill Patrol (PDP) in 1972. Other founding members included: Jack Fritscher, Ed Linotti, Robert Cato, Frank Gonchar, Tony Perles, Bill Livingston, and Lee Smithee (who appears in PDP jumpsuit uniform in the photograph entitled, "Undercover Cop: The Secret Co-Efficients of Desire, 1974" on page 17 of Jack Fritscher's American Men coffee-table photography book, GMP, London, 1995). Bill and Lee's design business, which employed Bob Cato who crashed his van accidentally into Mary Martin and Janet Gaynor, after leaving Jack Fritscher's house, was burned out during the Barracks Bath House fire, South of Market, on Hallam Street, where the artist Rex lost his studio as did the photographer Mark I. Chester. Approximately ninety days before this March 1997 cover appeared, Tom of Finland arrived in America (November 1976) and was hosted in San Francisco by Drummer Art Director, Al (A. Jay) Shapiro and Drummer editor-in-chief, Jack Fritscher. At this same time as this March 1977 cover appeared, Robert Mapplethorpe arrived in San Francisco where Jack Fritscher introduced him to the bunker location that figured in several of the controversial Mapplethorpe photographs.) Editor of issue for Drummer #21: Jack Fritscher



DRUMMER #24, OCTOBER 1978
Color cover actually shot by Robert Mapplethorpe. Cover was designed, cast, and commissioned by Jack Fritscher. The model is Fritscher-intimate Elliott Siegal (then-manager of the St. Mark's Baths in Greenwich Village) whom Mapplethorpe went on to use in other photographs. For more history, see Jack Fritscher's autobiographical memoir of his life and times with Robert Mapplethorpe titled Mapplethorpe: Assault with a Deadly Camera, Hastings House, 1994, 316 pages. In this same issue, the lead photo feature, "Drummer Inspects the Quarters" (8 pages, 20 photographs) was shot by Sparrow-Fritscher. Also, the 9-page feature, "Bondage: Blest Be the Tie That Binds: An Ultimate Reality" uses 13 photographs shot August 5, 1978, by Sparrow-Fritscher (Fritscher is the hooded model suspended because the scheduled model did not show up; the other model is Ed Holder) to illustrate the feature article written by Jack Fritscher after interviewing--by telephone on January 9, 1978--Gary Bratman, the Manhattan founder of S.H.A.V.E. (Shaved Heads And Various Erotica). Richard Locke's interview head-shot photos by Sparrow-Fritscher; Jack Fritscher introduced Richard Locke to publisher Winston Leyland at Gay Sunshine Press so that Richard Locke's autobiography, I Didn't Do It For the Money (see Honcho, May1984) might see print during those days when the HIV+ Locke was often featured on television news openly carrying AIDS drugs across the border from Mexico. Fritscher's conceptual interview with Richard Locke, reported by the pseudonymous "Eric Van Meter," was the first gay lib reference to erotic glorification of older men as "daddies." During production of this issue, Fritscher developed his original concept which he called "Tough Customers" in Drummer #25 to solicit reader contributions of personal photographs of themselves. Fritscher's "Tough Customers" was so successful as a regular feature that it eventually spun out into its own magazine for Desmodus, titled Tough Customers. David Sparrow himself is featured in this issue in the Jack Fritscher photograph, center, page 76, with arms tied up to cellar pipes. He also appears in the related photograph titled "David Sparrow, Honeymoon Photo Album, July 4, 1969, on page 37 in Jack Fritscher's American Men photography book, GMP, London, 1995. Editor for Drummer #24: Jack Fritscher.



DRUMMER #25, OCTOBER 1978
Shot by Sparrow-Fritscher, Cover Photo, and Contents Page Photo, both of model Mike Glassman aka "Ed Dinakos." This was Mike Glassman's first cover: shot immediately upon his arrival in San Francisco from New York, and prior to Mike's steroid-pumped hustling career in Los Angeles, as well as prior to his stardom as the Colt Studio print model renamed "Ed Dinakos," whose best film (13 years after he was shot by Sparrow-Fritscher) was also Colt's best film, 1991's Muscle Ranch, with Mike's then-partner Jake Tanner. According to sources within AIDS mythology, Mike Glassman died a year or so after the release of Muscle Ranch. Drummer #25 includes centerspread on Big Mike of 7 photographs on 4-pages with 4-page-size poster on reverse of fold out. Other Sparrow-Fritscher photographs (27 photos, 6 pages) comprise the photo cartoon "The Day They Installed the Phone in the Dungeon," with dialog balloons written by Drummer publisher John Embry; also includes product photography (20 photos, 5 pages) for "Drummer Gift Guide" with text by Jack Fritscher. A single Fritscher photograph, "Cowboy in Bondage," appears on page 32. Two other David Sparrow photographs appear on page 68 with Target Studio photos shot by Lou Thomas. Editor of issue for Drummer #25: Jack Fritscher.



DRUMMER #30, JUNE 1978
Shot by Sparrow-Fritscher, Cover Photo of erotic leather legend Val Martin and Bob/Leo Stone, in the characteristically "imprimatur" Fritscher-design of the arm-wrestling pose of comparative biceps, comparative fists, shot profile after the manner of classic Roman coins. South American Val Martin was the first Mr. Drummer in 1979. Leo Stone, his partner, became the Zeus Studio model, Leo Stone. The leathery pas de deux of Val Martin and Leo Stone, photographed by Jim Hawkins for Zeus, appeared in The Zeus Collection Magazine titled Zeus Presents Val Martin and Leo Stone, designed by Mikal Bales, 1979. Fritscher photographed Val Martin and Leo Stone again, July 4th weekend, 1978, in an as-yet-unpublished storyboard series of spit-and-piss photographs shot in the Sonoma County barn owned by Pacific Drill Patrol founding-member, Ed Linotti.

In an interesting historical note, Drummer #30 carried Chapter Two of the serialized novel Mr. Benson whose first chapter was printed by Jack Fritscher in Drummer #29, May 1979. The author of Mr. Benson is listed as "Jack Prescott," the pseudonym which Jack Fritscher counseled writer John Preston to drop in favor of using his real name in the same way Drummer editor-in-chief, Jack Fritscher, chose to use his real name during an age of strong gay pride. In point of fact, Jack Fritscher, Ph.D., had been a university professor teaching creative writing and journalism for ten years, when in the spring of 1979, he mentored John Preston who had written a draft of Mr.Benson which was so rough that editor-in-chief Fritscher (after much pressure from Drummer publisher John Embry and much consultation with Preston) had to become a "script doctor" doing the final edit and polish on Mr. Benson, so the story, which Embry had paid for on spec, could actually be published. There are actually three Mr. Benson manuscripts: 1) Preston's original draft, 2) Fritscher's polish of Preston's draft actually serialized in Drummer, and 3) Embry's published book based on the two previous manuscripts. Editor of issue for Drummer #30: Jack Fritscher

The 1993 titles are Rough Night at the Jockstrap Gym with Steve Thrasher, When Bodybuilders Collide with Brutus,and the very inter-personal solo video, Homme Alone (Gonna Fuck You Up!). Fritscher has stated that "Homme Alone is the perfect Palm Drive video, interactive, with the actor being as right with the camera as the camera is with the actor. Russo absolutely did what Russo does, and I absolutely did what Palm Drive's camera does."Fritscher shot Russo again, September 14, 1994, at Bob Cato's San Francisco house in stills and video for the Palm Drive Video feature, 5 Guys in a Whorehouse.
