Past LASFS officers PDF Print E-mail

This is a list of LASFS elected officers from 1964-1978. More will be added as we collect the information from plaques at the clubhouse and other historical sources.

Note: Most of the officer titles have changed. Most of the traditional titles have their origins lost in antiquity, and all but one have changed since the LASFS incorporated. For example, the presiding officer used to be called the "Director". When the LASFS incorporated, this was changed to "President" to avoid confusion with "Director" meaning "Member of the Board of Directors".

Duties/comments

Treasurer

Collects dues, manages the club's finances

Secretary

Scribe

Takes minutes and publishes them in the newsletter and on the website. The minutes of general membership meetings are commonly referred as "The Menace of the LASFS"

Senior Committeeman

Vice President

Presides if the President is absent. At times, this position has also been responsible for arranging programming for the meetings

Junior Committeeman

Registrar

Greets new visitors. The majority of visitors are male, so this job has often been done by a young woman. But not always, as you can see from the list of names.

Abbreviations:

(R): Resigned partway through the term of office

(I): Impeached. In general, when a LASFS officer was impeached, it wasn't because of any wrongdoing. The usual reason was "nonfeasance," that is, not showing up at meetings to do the job. Often referred to in Fandom as "FAFIA" (Forced Away From It All, usually by work or family issues).

(I/R): A motion to impeach was submitted, and the officer resigned.



[1] Fannish name of David McDaniel.

[2] After he broke his foot in a motorcycle accident, he went flying down the halls at Cal Tech on his crutches. This led to his being nicknamed "Der Fliegende Hollander," or "Flieg" for short

[3] Sam Russell was widely believed to be an FBI informant, sent to report on the LASFS. If so, it's unlikely he found anything of interest to the Bureau. LASFS really is just a bunch of harmless nuts who use words from SF novels in our conversation.

[4] Ellen Fox, daughter of Dave Fox. Dave wrote the Khorlia chronicles http://www.kayshapero.net/Khorlia/khorlia.html
