Rick Norwood as Good Ole Charlie Brown at St. Louiscon in 1969, shortly before the movie screen was torn.

Rick Norwood, a southern Louisiana fan now in Tennessee, was at MIT (with a subsequent career as a mathematician) during the early days of Spacewar, and later a member of LASFS in the mid-1960s. Returning to New Orleans from time to time with tales of cons, clubs, and dreams of what might be, he joined with John Guidry in rounding up and organizing a group of established fen, neofen, and protofen into what was the late 1960s rebirth of active, organized fandom in New Orleans.

He founded the APA George. He was a member of CAPA-alpha. He edited two issues of Nolazine. He co-chaired DeepSouthCon 6 and DeepSouthCon 9.

In 1976, Norwood founded Manuscript Press, a small press that specializes in reprints of comic strips and also in previously unpublished novels by SF authors, including:
