Transcript ».«a mk't ism :-; LV MEMORIAL by Rachel Holman West Coast fandom lost nine members last year, two of them to murder (Helene "Hen" Flanders and Frank Seletri), the others to causes designated natural.1 Two in particular were close to the Westerchron committee. Alva Rogers was the convention's original hotel liaison; Vern Forgue was the committee chairman's estranged husband. Vern introduced me to fandom at the 1969 Santa Monica Westercon—whereupon I never forgave him for having failed to take me to the 1968 Worldcon at the Claremont Hotel in Berkeley. The remaining five on this list (luckily brief) are William Tuning, Sir Alvin Germeshausen, Stanton A. Coblentz, Buster Crabbe, and Ivan Tors. Then there's a tenth—or is there? L. Ron Hubbard, 77, was declared alive in May.2 The following names are some of those whose deaths occurred or whose deaths became known during the past year: April 18, 1982 William Tuning, West Coast fan, 46 Donald L. Miller, fan, 49 Frank Seletri, LA area fan Alva Rogers, Bay Area fan, 59 Sir Alvin Germeshausen, LA area fan, 76 Paul Eldridge, writer, 94 Helene Flanders, Pacific NW fan, 38 Stanton A. Coblentz, writer, 86 Mark Feldman, fan, 29 John Gardner, writer, 49; accident Gene Day, artist, 31 William McGivern, writer, 61 Vernon R. Forgue, Bay Area fan, 42 Mack Reynolds, writer, 65 Max Ehrlich, writer, 73 William Boyd, writer, 79 Roy Krenkel, artist, 64 Arthur Koestler, writer, 77 Dame Rebecca West, writer, 90 "Buster" Crabbe, actor, 75 John Masters, writer, 68 Zenna Henderson, writer, 65 Ivan Tors, film producer, 66 My personal beliefs preclude any hope that these folks are enjoying "that great convention in the sky," but writers' and artists' works still show us their hearts and minds, and it is up to us to remember our fellow fans. We'll miss them all. "June" "late June" July 9 July 24 July 26 August 13 September 6 September 8 September 14 September 23 November 18 January 19, 1983 January 30 February 11 February 19 February 24 March 3 March 15 April 23 "early May" May 11 June 4 1. In Between Planets, Robert A. Heinlein commented cynically that "in the end, all forms of death can be classed as 'heart failure'." 2. Embarrassingly, Locus reported incorrectly that artist Linda Leach had died. I'm happy to report that I was—er—dead wrong. 88 WESTERCHRON
