(June 23, 1931 -- May 4, 2002)

Born Nancy Share and often called Nan, Nancy Rapp entered fandom in the 1940s, writing and drawing for fanzines. She sometimes signed her illos Kabu. Her sister, Marie Louise Share, was also a fan.

She was nicknamedSweet Unspoiled Miss Nanshare” by Lee Jacobs while Eney called her a “rosy-cheeked flower of Pennsylvania girlhood.”

She married fan Art Rapp in 1961. She invented the fannish ghod Ignatz. She taught her son to stick out his tongue and go "pfft!" when the N3F was mentioned.


Her photograph appears on page 16 of A Wealth of Fable (1992), the fan history of the 1950s by Harry Warner, Jr.
