A bid by the BoSFS to bring the Worldcon to Boston in 1967. It finished fourth in a field of four in the voting at Tricon in 1966 New York in 1967 (the winner), Syracuse in '67, and Baltimore in '67. See 1967 Worldcon Site Selection.

The bid was run by Dave Vanderwerf with Mike Shupp, Ed Galvin, Paul Galvin, Mike Ward, and Erwin (Filthy Pierre) Strauss.

This bid was Boston's first foray into Worldcon politics and advertised itself as a joint bid by BoSFS, MITSFS, and the University of Massachusetts Science Fiction Society.

Helmuth began as a Boston in '67 bidzine. It appears that there was a Black Lensmen group of bid pre-supporters.
