TusCon Photo Album - Master Index

The History of TusCon

    It all started one night in the summer of 1974 when Jim Corrick and I were sitting on the front steps of the house of our friend Nancy Mairs after a science fiction meeting (I remember the sky looking something like this background). We decided that Tucson should have a Science Fiction convention, and simultaneously came up with the name "TusCon." After that, it was 'merely' a matter of getting it all arranged, pooling our paltry resources to finance it, and voila, TusCon was born.
    For several years I have been threatening promising to put together a page on the history of TusCon. And here it is, with many thanks to Brian Gross, Jim Corrick, Wolf Forrest, Trini Ruiz, and Gloria McMillan....

For more of this fascinating insight into the origins and history of TrusCon please see Carol De Priest's new TusCon's Illustrated History Pages which is under construction.
