The Worldcon bid to host the 1971 Worldcon in Boston. It was led by Tony Lewis and defeated the Washington in '71 bid (see 1971 Site Selection.) It went on to run Noreascon.

Charlie Brown, Ed Meskys and Dave Vanderwerf started Locus in 1968 as a newszine to promote the Boston in 71 worldcon bid. As a bidzine Locus was intended to be published only until the site-selection vote was taken at St. Louiscon, the 1969 Worldcon, but Brown decided to continue publishing it as a general newszine.
