Midwestcon 21
These snapshots were taken at the 1970 version of Midwestcon—one of the oldest extant science fiction conventions … and one of the best. It's held every summer in Cincinnati, Ohio.
I've tried to identify as many people as I could—corrections or additions are always welcome!
THANKS! for help with identification: Dave Locke, Ned Brooks, Ted White, rich brown, Jerry Kaufman, and Suzanne V. Tompkins.

That's Jody & Andy Offutt in the foreground and Hank & Lesleigh Luttrell in the background. The identity of the other two gentlemen in the foreground is lurking right around the tip of my tongue....

Tucker never was much for self-promotion…
DL & NB both confirm that's Charlie Brown on the left in the black shirt. Any other identifications?

"Tall guy with mustache on ..."

Larry Nichols and friend. "Friend" looks darned familiar, but I can't seem to place her at the moment.

Jim Young. It appears he's looking for rare and/or interesting fanzines. Note the copy of "Sing Out" at the bottom of the photo.
"Good to see the SF-folkie ..."

Ed Smith. Whose face and name, I blush to confess, don't ring a bell with me—but that's who his name badge says he is….
"The mysterious Ed Smith co..."
"He was a Washington, D.C. ..."
"Ed and a girlfriend later ..."
"Ed was in the Falls Church..."

Fen around the trunk of our car, chatting and looking at the Odbert posters, including one promoting Minneapolis in '73—our now legendary Worldcon bid. I can't recall whether we were selling the posters or had simply brought them to display.

Me. I don't recall who took this photo, although Karen is a likely suspect. Might've been Riley though.
