The Chairmen of TusCons 1-4 were Jim Corrick and Carol De Priest who originally conceived the idea of TusCon in the Spring of 1974. The rest of the TusCons have been chaired by Sharon Maples, Sue Thing, Deb Dedon, Cristi Simila, and/or Bruce Wiley either individually or in various combinations.
- There was no TusCon held in 1977 or 1978 due to the intrusion of the 36th World Science Fiction Convention, Iguanacon, held in Phoenix over Labor Day Weekend, 1978. Both Jim and I had already committed to working on "Iggy" back in the Winter of 1975-76 -- he as head of the Hugo Awards department and programming, and I as head of memberships and registration. After that experience we gafiated. Sharon Maples, before chairing the two following TusCons (1979 & 1980), was to get her feet wet as treasurer of Iggy(!) and thus hadn't burned out quite yet. As a footnote, Jim reminded me that giving the non-existing 'TusCon V' a number was a running joke for some years thereafter - anyone reading this who is a fan totally understands.

- Liz has been coming to TusCons since the early 1980s.
