Boskone 2 was held March 11-13, 1966 at the Statler-Hilton, Boston in Boston, MA. GoHs were Frederik Pohl, Dwight Wayne Batteau, Prof. Igor Paul, and Prof. Oliver Selfridge. It was chaired by Dave Vanderwerf and attendance was 71. Boskone 2 was sponsored by BoSFS as part of its bidding strategy for Boston in '67.
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 II was held in 1942.)
