ConCom Members

The committee was Bill Bowers, with the help of Dave Locke, Bill Cavin, Larry Tucker, Leah Zeldes Smith, Pat then-Muller Virzi, Richard Brandt, Fred Haskell, Edd Vick, Frank Johnson, Debbie Rigdon, Bill Cavin, and Linda Bushyager.--Bill Bowers

Notes

Gary Mattingly and Leah Zeldes Smith were special guests; Taral was the Toastmaster. “The “reason” Gary Mattingly and Leah Zeldes Smith were “Special Guests”, is that they, along with an absent Sid Altus, were the Committee for Autoclave 1, over Memorial Day Weekend, 1976 -- The Very First Convention for Fanzine Fans; a concept which was, apparently unknowingly, re-invented by the Corflu Founding Mothers ... sometime later.” -- Bill Bowers. A lot of information about Corflu IV is in Outworlds 50, Bill's fanzine. Bill also notes: “I pulled off the only convention in the mid- to-late 80s which had both Dave Locke and Ted White in attendance... and rich brown was the only member to turn over my (subtle, no?) Richard Bergeron original-silk-screened name-badge, and use the blank backside.”
