Fanzine Publishers of the 1960s

As part of a paper on the early history of Star Trek fanfiction, I have tried to estimate the sex ratio among sf fanzine publishers in the 1960s. I looked at Temple University Library's list of its fanzine holdings. For every zine in this collection published in the 1960s for which a publisher or editor's name was given, I categorized that name as clearly (or known to me as) male, clearly female, or unclear. Each name was only counted once, regardless of how many different zines that person had published. When a zine had more than one publisher, each name was tabulated separately.

I am posting this list on the Web so it can be double-checked by fans with first-hand knowledge. In addition to the problem of people with non-gender-specific names, I may have put women in the "male" column or men in the "female" column; it is also possible that some people are in more than once under different names.

For comparison purposes, see my list of Star Trek Zine Fans: 1967-71. The SF list is about 17% female; the Trek list is about 83% female. Interesting, no?

Please send any corrections or comments to Mary Ellen Curtin.
