Jean Young

Jean Young was a fanzine editor and artist. She was best known as a fan artist, but in the 1950s she was also well known in fandom as one of the "Balcony Insurgents" of the 1956 NYCon II Worldcon, who occupied a balcony rather than pay an exorbitant price to hear talks in the banquet hall.

She was married to fellow fan Andy Young and lived in Cambridge, MA during the 50s, a time when there was no organized fannish activity in Boston. They were known as J&Y (Jandy).
