QOTD

'Except for contacts mentioned here including Weinberg, Everts, Kemp, Korshak, Ackerman, and letters from Weird Tales readers, Margaret [Brundage] had little interaction with fandom. Contrary to some reports, our research found no record of her ever attending any convention. She was a guest lecturer at multiple University of Chicago Science Fiction Club meetings including in Nov. of 1954. Margaret was the first professional to ever donate original art to benefit the World Science Fiction Convention (Seacon in Seattle WA., 1961), but she did not attend. The following year, she was advertised as tentative to judge the Masquerade Ball at the 1962 World Con in Chicago, aka Chicon, but did not attend. Noted author Leigh Brackett filled in for Margaret as judge.'

-- J. David Spurlock, "The Secret Life of Margaret Brundage" in The Alluring Art of Margaret Brundage
