First Fandom

Tagged: Community | Fan

Informal fan organization founded in 1959, originally confined to those active in Fandom prior to 1938. Owing to the inevitable attrition of these "golden era" or "dinosaur" fans, associate membership has for many years been available to anyone participating in fan activities (including Fanzines, Conventions and sf clubs) for 30 or more years. Two awards are presented: the annual addition of new members to the First Fandom Hall of Fame and, since 1998, the less regular Sam Moskowitz Archive Award for excellence in sf collecting (see Collections).
