(???? -- )
He claims to have founded the Eastbay Club in 1928, making it arguably the earliest SF club, but his memory of when it was founded seemed to move further back as needed to remain first, so his claim was not widely accepted. See First Club for discussion. His memoir on the subject is "Aubrey MacDermott on the Origins of Fandom". He was the author of the 1987 article "Recollections on the Origins of Science Fiction Fandom 1917 to 1948."
Regardless of which club actually came first, McDermott was definitely one of the very earliest fans.
