  1. I wonder how many of the attendees realized how significant it was that Erle Korshak was there?

  2. @Joseph T Major: Probably not a lot. If memory serves, with the death of Dave Kyle, Erle and Bob Madle are the last of the original First Fandom group that were involved in fandom on the 30’s. (Bob is still with us and a regular at Philcon. I expect to see him there in November.)

    But with attendance in the 5000+ plus range, only a tiny fraction will be aware of First Fandom, let alone who the members were. Hopefully, some of them now are aware of First Fandom.

  3. Oh, some of us knew the significance of Erle Korshak being there! I tried to spend as much time chatting with him as I could. But then, I’m the kind of guy who still puts up DAVE KYLE SAYS YOU CAN’T SIT HERE signs.

    Here’s a photo of me and Erle, along with some guy whose name I can’t quite remember …

  4. I really dislike those signs. In almost every case, they are placed on chairs put there by the accessibility staff specifically for people who need them TO SIT IN.

    I started disliking them when I saw a fan who was obviously in pain hobbled on to the next set of chairs 20 feet further away because the sign said they couldn’t sit there.

    It’s an exclusionary “joke” that causes microaggressions. Stick one on a middle seat in the back row of the Hugos or something. Or bring a chair and ask staff where to put the one joke sign.
