Nycon 1 Membership List

From Fancyclopedia 3
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Nycon 1 had a list of members, but it was neither accurate nor complete. Not accurate, because many people signed up with pseudonyms -- in some cases more than one. Not complete in that an estimated fifty people didn't sign in at all! (The $1 membership fee, while not insignificant to those poverty-stricken young people, was not a major source of convention income, so there was little attempt to get everyone to pay.)

This list was published in Julius Unger's fanzine Fantasy Fiction Field Nycon Review in June 1942 See http://fanac.org/fanzines/Fantasy_Fiction_Field/FanFic_Field875-17.html (IA) for the actual list. To it we have added names for which there is evidence of their attendance.
