From a 1976 teen magazine... interesting coverage of a NY con, with an awesome bridge set!
And a clipping from a 1976 newspaper about a convention coming to the Boston area.
The early and mid-70's were the glory days of the Trek conventions. I lived them vicariously through the magazine and newspaper articles I found concerning them. Although isolated from other fans, I felt a part of something just by reading about them. We all shared a love for the same thing, and there was nothing else like it!
The third issue cover of the much-loved Starlog magazine, scanned in below, captures the excitement and hero-worship of these early conventions!
