|from Fancyclopedia 2 ca. 1959|
|(Gerding) A mimeograph used, originally, by Manley Bannister to publish NEKROMANTIKON and donated to TAFF — or, more correctly, to the WAW With the Crew in '52 Fund — when the original owner went gafia. It was an electric A B Dick. Nan Gerding won it; when she gafiated for a spell in late 1954 she passed it on to Lee Jacobs, and Terry Car got it from Leej some time after he dropped out of fandom. Probably other fan mimeos have equally wandering histories, if we only knew.
from Fancyclopedia 2 Supplement ca. 1960:
"You managed to misspel both of Manly Banister's names!" snorts Redd Boggs scornfully. "Redd understated the case", adds Art Rapp; "you also managed to misspell Terry Carr's name! (A blunder worthy of note since it's probably the only time in fannish history that anyone managed to do that!)"
