Several Toronto fan groups have been called the Derelicts.

1940s and ’50s[edit]

Ad from the 1949 Cinvention Program Book.

In the late 1940s, Ontario fandom was centered around the Toronto Science Fiction Society, aka the Toronto Derelicts (founded 1948), and the fanzine Canadian Fandom. Beak Taylor, John Millard, Bill Grant, Art Ludlam and Ned McKeown were prominent members. They put on Torcon.

In the early ’50s, a new group of fans (including Ron Kidder, Howard Lyons, Boyd Raeburn, Gerald Steward and Pat Patterson) joined.

Around 1953, a clique of insurgents, most notably Ned McKeown, Grant, Lyons, Raeburn and Steward, started calling themselves the The Derelict Insurgents.

As typical insurgents, they indulged in light-hearted, non-serious behavior. Besides fanzines, the Insurgents were known for their liking of Beat poetry, jazz, leather jackets and fast cars. They were affiliated with the CSFA.

1970s[edit]

In the mid- to late 1970s, the Derelicts name covered a group including Patrick Hayden, Wayne MacDonald, Phil Paine, Alan Rosenthal, Bob Webber, Bob Wilson and Victoria Vayne. They were intense fanzine pubbers and inveterate walkers.

This is a group page. Please extend it by adding information about when and where the group formed, its members, how long it was active, notable accomplishments, external links to the group's website, etc.

When there's a floreat (Fl.), this indicates the time or times for which we have found evidence that the group existed. This is probably not going to represent the group's full lifetime, so please update it if you can!
