Transcript The COMMITTEE—continued from previous page Jim Hudson entered fandom at Noreascon in 1971. He was Co-Treasurer of Boskone 12, Co-Chairman of Boskone 13, Treasurer and Clerk of the New England SF Association, and is now its President. He is interested in all sides of convention running, particularly in doing things efficiently, since that's less work in the long run. In real life he does research on garbage and sewage, paid for by your tax dollar. Bill Carton has run well-received film programs at the last three Boskones and served as Co-Chairman of Lexicon 5 and 6. He is Technical Director for the New England SF Association's audio-visual projects, has been their Vice-President for two years, and is a licensed projectionist. While at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Bill started the annual TechniCon series of conventions now in their fifth year. He is presently an electronic designer in the Semiconductor Testing Division of Teradyne in Boston. Suford Lewis has read andcollect- ed SF from the age of 9 and been in fandom since the early 60's when she was a member of LASFS and minor fanzine letterhack. In the Boston area for college, she joined the MIT SF Society and was on hand for the formation of the New England SF Association as well as the bidding for Noreascon on which she worked. She is a founding member of "organized" Georgette Heyer fandom and a costume fan. She is enough of a Trekkie to write for Spockanalia and enough of a comics fan to collect Spiderman. Suford has been Clerk, Vice-President, and President of the New England SF Association. She is a member of cat fandom and horse fandom, chaired Boskone 10 and the Art Shows at Boskone 13 and 14. Drew Whyte is the anthology compiler and annotator for The NESFA Index. He was a Hugo awards nomination validator for SunCon and has compiled bibliographical information for Boskone program books for many years. Some of his work as an encyclopedic student and indexer of the SF and Fantasy field is seen in Galileo magazine. John Turner was co-chief of headquarters for Boskone 10, hotel liaison for Boskone 11, in charge of registration for Boskones 12 and 13, and in charge of headquarters for Boskone 14. He is an avid listener for short wave radio and works in distress analysis for Stone & Webster Engineering Corp. Krissy still reigns as the New England SF Association's Feline Deity. Her vast amounts of fannish ambition are sometimes matched by equal amounts of laziness. Krissy was Co-Chairman of Wintercon 2, did the book design for A Time When by Anne McCaffrey, and massacred The HAB Theory (see S.F.R. 21). Krissy will be toastmaster at the 1978 MiniCon and is a little, brown, designing female for a well known Boston publishing company. Spike MacPhee ownes and manages the Science Fantasy Book Store (Boston's SF Store) and Paratime Press, publishers. He has worked on several Boskones and was a co-winner of the Bill Rotsler Award (which he blames on David Stever) at the TorCon II masquerade. Seth Breidbart has been attending cons since 1969. He has been in charge of discussion groups at Boskone and worked on Boskones, Disclaves, Tor- Con II, DisCon II, Big MAC, etc. Seth actually reads science fiction and has been doing so since discovering it in first grade. He is authorized to run franchised Sleezycon parties and now lives in Santa Barbara, California, making him one of the two Committee members outside the east WorldCon rotation zone. Ellen Franklin is a Tru Fan — she hasn't started reading science fiction yet but concentrates on mysteries and romances. As a costume, art, and cat fan, Ellen has been active in the New England SF Association and Boskone since 1971. She was in charge of headquarters for Boskone 12, co-chaired Boskone 13, and was program manager for Boskone 14. Ellen also worked on last year's BaltiCon Art Show. She rides in Gharlane of Eddore's own Boskonian Cavalry and played a major role in the creation of Marshmallow Fandom. David Stever has been active in MinneAPA, APA-45, and APA.NESFA. He has been editor of Proper Boskonian, was co-chief of the Boskone 12 headquarters crew, and in charge of helper recruitment and assignment for Boskone 14. David was Co-Chairman of Wintercon 2, writes Iocs and an occasional fanzine article, and is a Space- hound of IPC. R. Terry McCutchen was Co-Chairman of Boskone 12 and ran Wintercon 3. He has been Chairman of the New England SF Association's Index Production Committee for three years. He was in charge of films for Boskone 11 and Logistics for Boskones 13 and 14. He will be co-chief of Logistics for Boskone 15. Terry worked on art show hangings and was in charge of computer games at DisCon II. John Houghton was co-chief of headquarters for Boskone 10 and in charge of Logistics for Boskones 11 and 12. He is a former Top Dog of the IPC Spacehounds. John was Chairman of Lexicon 3 and is a member of the Appalachian Mountain Club. Paula Lieberman is an active con attendee and was in charge of registration for Boskone 11. She is now a lieutenant in the US Air Force. Paula is one of the two members of the Committee to live outside the east Worldcon rotation zone, in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and is one of our more secure members, being stationed inside Cheyenne Mountian. Donald Eastlake was Co-Chairman of Boskone 11 and three-term President of the New England SF Association, of which he is now Clerk. He has been in charge of its Sales Committee. He works as the Operations Manager for Computer Corporation of America's Sponsored Research Division. John Spert has worked on The NESFA Index and Boskones for several years. He will be co-chief of Logistics for Boskone 15. He is a former Top Dog of the Spacehounds of IPC. Kath Home, who started reading science fiction in second grade, was Co- Chairman of Lexicon 5 and 6. She was in charge of pre-con registration for Boskone 14, worked on the Art Show at Boskone 11, and was Assistant Manager of the Art Show at Boskone 12. In real life, Kath is into computers and manages to work on needlecraft projects in her "spare time". Jerry Boyajian, AKA The Mad Armenian, has worked on The NESFA Index and Boskones for many years. He was a Hugo awards nomination validator for SunCon. He has been active in APA:NESFA and is presently in Minni- APA. Jerry is a Spacehound of IPC in the "real world" and works part-time as Manager of the Science Fantasy Bookstore. Mike Saler is the Collator of APA: NESFA, a member of the Rhode Island SF Association Players, and founder of the New England SF Association's Navy. He also served as Chairman of the Concord, MA in 1980 Committee, and learned the ins and outs of Worldcon bidding through putting on a successful presentation at the Alternative Worldcon seminar at Boskone 14.
