Philadelphia in '86

A Worldcon bid by the Phanadelphia Corporation for the right to host the 1986 Worldcon in Philadelphia. It lost to Atlanta in '86 which ran ConFederation. New York in '86 was also bidding. See 1986 Site Selection results for details.

One of the features of the bid was Nick Pollotta's series of comedy tape recordings about Phil A. Delphia, fannish Secret Agent 86, played at conventions around the country. Some of these can be found at http://www.youtube.com/user/NickPollotta

As of early 1980, it was chaired by Wilma Fisher with Neil Harris, P. B. McGrath, Larry Gelfand, J. B. Post, Dorothy Amlin, Fred Even, Walt Rittenhouse, Jason Keehn, Janny Wurts, Joann Lawler, Yoel Attiya, Lynn Cohen, and Berta Attiya.
