Boston in 71 won over Washington in '71 in the 1971 Worldcon Site Selection held at St. Louiscon in 1969 (the first Worldcon chosen with a 2-year lead time). 1973 Worldcon Site Selection chose Toronto in '73.

Noreascon hosted the 1971 Hugos. As a gesture of friendship to Canadian fans, Noreascon translated the Hugo ballot into French and sent that to all Canadians. There was also a Russian version of the ballot.
