Boskone 1 was held September 10-12, 1965 at the Statler-Hilton, Boston. The GoHs were Hal Clement, Dr. Robert Enzmann. It was chaired by Dave Vanderwerf and attendance was 66. Boskone 1 was sponsored by BoSFS as part of its bidding strategy for Boston in '67.
An Oguh Award was given to Alma Hill for distinguished service to SF in New England.
This was part of the modern series of Boskones. The first series (held during WW II) had been forgotten by the time the modern Boskone started, so the modern series again started at 1. To distinguish, first series Boskones use Roman numerals, and modern Boskones use Arabic numerals. (Boskone I was held in 1941.)
