Detroit in '82

An unsuccessful bid for the 1982 Worldcon. The vote was won by Chicago in 1982, which outspent Detroit by four or five times and published advertisements comparing the city of Detroit to the Nazi concentration camp in Dachau. (St Ghu in '82 also ran.)

The bid was chaired by Rusty Hevelin. Other bidcom members included Sid Altus and Leah Zeldes.

See 1982 Site Selection results for vote details.
