(August 12, 1928 – June 2, 2023)

A Philadelphia fan, Allison Williams (later Phillips) was a member of PSFS and co-editor of its OO, Variant, in 1947. She attended the Worldcons Philcon in 1947 and Cinvention in 1949. She was registrar for Philcon II, the 1953 Worldcon.

She was a daughter of James Williams, president of PSFS. Like her father, Allison served as president of the club. She married Alexander M. “Lex” Phillips, a pro who became a PSFS president, too.

The family tradition of fannish involvement continued with Margaret Trebing, Allison and Alexander’s daughter, who also became a PSFS officer.

Allison's mother, Margaret, died when Allison was 3. As a result, Allison lived with other relatives throughout her childhood, in Wisconsin and Florida, as well as Pennsylvania.
