Cosmen of the Island

An ersatz club created by Claude Degler on Long Island in 1943 as part of his Cosmic Circle. It's head (and sole members) was Russell Wilsey,, a neofan. He populated the clubs by contacting prozine readers using names and addresses culled from their letter columns. It seems to have had no real existence.


This is a stub club page. Please extend it by adding information about when and where the club met, how long it was active, notable accomplishments, well-known members, club fanzines, any conventions it ran, external links to the club's website, other club pages, etc.
When there's a floreat (Fl.) this indicates the time or times for which the club is attested. Clubs probably lasted longer than that. Please update it!
