Newton South High School SF Club

A high school club founded by Gayle Kaplan in 1969 after attending Boskone 6 and discovering female science fiction writers and learning about fandom and clubs like the Brookline High School SF Club. Other members included Morris Keesan (a co-founder), Jacob Bloom, Jill Trugman, Georgine Chacran, and Donna Christine Benders. (They all became well-known in fandom in subsequent decades.)

The died in the early 70s the founding members had graduated — the club owed its entire existence to the coming together of a small group of actifans.
