Los Angeles

Los Angeles, CA was one of the first centers of fannish activity, with Chapter 4 of the SFL established there on October 27, 1934. It was soon energized by the young Forrest J Ackerman, so that upon the demise of the SFL, the LASFL reorganized itself as LASFS on March 27, 1940.

During the War

LA has held seven worldcons (see Los Angeles Worldcons), many Westercons, and holds an annual Loscon.

See LASFS and SCIFI for much more.
