Jack Wiedenbeck

Jack Wiedenbeck was a fan artist in the 1940s who, for a time, lived in the Slan Shack in Battle Creek, Michigan. He was one of the members of Nova Press, attended the 1943 Michiconference and the 1945 Michiconference and was a member of FAPA and the Order of Dagon.

He was labelled by Harry Warner as the first fakefan, one who likes to hang around with fans but who has no real interest in fandom itself.

His photo appears on page 34 of Warner's All Our Yesterdays (1969).
