(???? -- 1998)

Gary Anderson was instrumental in developing modern filk in southern California. He discovered filk at Discon II and over the next few years gathered the addresses of filkers in the LA area and sent notices of filk events to them. This group eventually became the Los Angeles Filkers Anonymous (LAFA). His mailing list evolved into a fanzine, which in turn became the The Philk-Fee-Nom-Ee-Non, published by Paul Willett.

He helped to start ConChord, which he worked on and also chaired and was one of the founding directors and officers of Interfilk, serving as its clerk until his death from cancer in 1998. The Friends of Gary fanfund was created to assist with his medical treatments.

He was married to Janet Wilson Anderson and was also a costumer.
