Eva Firestone was born in 1900.
She was a member of the original First Fandom (when fans did fannish things before they got in contact with each other). For example, she and her schoolgirl friends created one-copy fanzines.
Eva was a member of the Science Fiction League, and became active in general fandom when she responded to a prozine letter of K. Martin Carlson which told of the National Fantasy Fan Federation (N3F), which she subsequently joined (winning a Kaymar Award in 1960).
In the August, 1951, issue of TNFF she reported on membership activities. She also was a member of the Spectator Amateur Press Society, and attended Chicon II.
Her photo appears on page 13 of Harry Warner’s A Wealth of Fable.
