The LASFS 50th Anniversary Banquet was organized by Galen Tripp and held November 3, 1984 at the Padadena Hilton. (The actual anniversay sate was October 27.) Harlan Ellison was the main speaker and spoke for 2 1/2 hours! Forrest J Ackerman and Bill Rotsler were among the attendees.

Robert Bloch sent written congratulations which began:

Dear Friends and Fans: Fifty years ago there were many famous organizations and societies throughout the world -- the Nazi Party, the Gestapo, Murder, Incorporated and LASFS.  Today only LASFS has survived.  Which only goes to prove you can't win 'em all."

See the long report in File 770 50, p. 10.
