An organization of people interested in the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs It was a dream of Vernell Coriell, who had been publishing the Burroughs Bulletin since 1947 and its organizational meeting was held at Pittcon in 1960. Coriell continued to lead the BB through most of its existence.

The Burroughs Bulletin became the Official Organ of the Bibliophiles, and its members produced a score of Burroughs-related fan magazines. Each year from the early 60s through ConFederation in 1986 they held a Dum-Dum (that is what a convocation of the Great Apes was called by Edgar Rice Burroughs in his Tarzan books), usually at Worldcon, but eventually it became an independent event.
