Anne Passovoy

A fan active in filk, she is married to Dr. Bob Passovoy. She has written many of the seminal filk songs, including "Marcon Ballroom," and written perhaps the most widely-sung tune for Poul Anderson's poem "Mary O'Meara." The Passovoys were mainstays of the Midwest filk community during the 70s and 80s and were drafted as the entertainment while judging was going on at the MidAmericon masquerade.

She was one of the founding members of the Dorsai Irregulars. Robert Heinlein in part dedicated his 1982 novel Friday to Anne.

Along with her husband, she was the Fan Guest of Honor at Chicon 2000.
