Balticon 17 was a convention held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Baltimore, MD, Easter weekend, April 9-11, 1983. The GoHs were L. Sprague de Camp, Catherine Crook de Camp, and Anne Trembley, and the FGoHs were Jack Chalker and Eva Whitley.
The co-chairmen were Edie Williams and Pat Kelly.
In addition to the Guests of Honor, Andre Norton was the "Non-Attending Guest" and C. J. Cherryh, Hal Clement, Joe Haldeman, and Andrew Offutt were Special Guests. Because there were so many, it seems unlikely that these were GoH positions.
Donald Kingsbury won the Compton Crook Award for Courtship Rite.
