Jump to navigation Jump to search

A foundation set up in 1977 to honor the memory of Swedish fan Alvar Appeltofft. It was founded with money donated by Appeltofft's parents after his death, and funding was later hugely increased when the foundation also inherited half of their estate on the death of Appeltofft's last surviving parent. The foundation gives out the annual Alvar Appeltofft Memorial Award. The fund also financially supports fannish projects in Sweden. The foundation used to maintain a large collection of fanzines, but in 2005 the collection was donated to the Royal Library in Stockholm, Sweden's national library, for archival and research. Lars-Olov Strandberg was its first chairman and along with John-Henri Holmberg and Per Insulander one of its founders.
