(1900 –)

Eva Upton Firestone was very early fan, a member of First Fandom — she and her schoolgirl friends created one-copy fanzines.

Eva was a member of the Science Fiction League, and became active in general fandom when she responded to a prozine letter of K. Martin Carlson which told of the National Fantasy Fan Federation (N3F), which she subsequently joined, along with the N3F Ladies' Auxiliary. She also belonged to Science Fiction International, the ISFCC and Marion Zimmer's Club, according to the 1950 Fan Directory.

In the August, 1951, issue of TNFF she reported on membership activities. She also was a member of the Spectator Amateur Press Society, and attended Chicon II. She published at least 16 issues of the fanzine Bronc! between 1954 and 1960.

She lived in Wyoming, a widow caring for her child, her brother, and her invalid mother.

Her photo appears on page 13 of Harry Warner's A Wealth of Fable.
