WAW and Mate to the Gate in '58

From Fancyclopedia 3
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A fan fund to bring Walt Willis and Madeleine Willis to Solacon, the 1958 Worldcon which was (sorta) in South Gate. (That Madeleine would also be brought over was not a given -- the WAW With the Crew in '52 fan fund which brought Willis to the US for the first time was for him alone.)

The fund was cancelled at the beginning of 1958 at Willis's request as his planned babysitter would be unavailable.

The funds collected were divided between TAFF and Solacon.
