The 1971 Best Novel Hugo was presented September 5 at Noreascon.
Hal Clement was Treasurer of Noreascon and attempted to decline the nomination for Star Light since it was inappropriate for a committee member to be nominated. The rest of the committee would not allow him to give up a Hugo nomination, so he perforce resigned as Treasurer.
