(1912 - 1977)

Norman Souter Patton of New Plymouth was an early New Zealand fan. With Noel Jenkin, also of New Plymouth, he launched the New Zealand Science Fiction Association in 1935.

They went so far as to write to Amazing Stories and Wonder Stories to promote the club and to publish an advertisement in the New Zealand Herald newspaper in February 1935 that told interested persons of its aims to advance science fiction, asking, “CAN MAN FLY TO THE MOON?” Despite these promotional efforts, the club never went anywhere.
