from Fancyclopedia 2 Supplement ca. 1960
(Vorzimer) Vorzimer's NAPA was founded as a display to a writer from Life of the sort of non-juvenile-delinquency activity to which science-fantasy fandom led its cleancut youthful adherants. Vorzy collected a vast display — Ellik and Balint, looking it over, found no then-current fanzine (except APAzines) missing — and held a big party for the founders of NAPA in early November 1953, but the reporter from Life never showed up. A second party was held; still no reporter. At about that time the group decided to forget Life, form NAPA, and throw parties. The parties were very enjoyable, says Ellik.
