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
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.”
