(???? -- )

Barbara E. Bovard (aka Barbara Edge and BEB), a pioneering female L.A. fan, started contributing to fanzines before Ackerman dragged her into organized Shangri-LA fandom.

In 1942, she lived in Washington, DC, about which she wrote, “actifanlife is terrible” (Light 123). In 1944, she lived in Fairbanks, Alaska, and belonged to FAPA. In 1945, she moved back to L.A., but apparently gafiated soon afterward.

She may have gone by the name "The Atlantean."
