The first Hugos were called the Science Fiction Achievement Awards and were first announced in Philcon II's PR 3 (see below). They seem to have hoped that the SFAA would become a permanent award, since they called them the "First Annual". (The following Worldcon, SFCon did not award the Hugos in 1954, but the Clevention did in 1955 and that made them a Hallowed Tradition.
