Toronto in 1948
Jack Speer, a New Yorker at the time, had driven to Toronto to bring Thompson and McKeown to the Worldcon. John Millard, who also lived in Toronto was also at the Worldcon, and they mentioned to him that they had thought about having a Worldcon in Toronto, but were not sure they could do it. Millard was enthusiastic, and convinced the others to go ahead. They printed up flyers and banners and wrote their bid speech over the weekend.
They won. The result was Torcon.
