Awarded August 30, 1969 by St. Louiscon.

St. Louiscon's categories were the same as Baycon's with the addition of the Best Novella category and continue a long period of relative stable Hugo categories.

Like Baycon, St. Louiscon seems to have had a schizophrenic attitude towards releasing the order of finish in the various categories. The always listed the second place finisher, but only sometimes did they list third place, and they did not rank anything that finished lower than third place.

The committee also gave out a Committee Special Award to Neil Armstrong, Edwin E. Aldrin and Michael Collins for "The Best Moon Landing Ever"

The WSFS Business Meeting at St. Louiscon eliminated the Best Novelette Hugo category, merging it into Best Short Story.
