Star Trek Con History

Via the TOS community on LJ, some lovely pics and info on the earliest of Trek cons in the 1970s. Check out this cover to a program!

The author says:
This one's from a con that took place at the Commodore Hotel, Feb. 14 - 17, 1975. (I was 13.) The guests were Isaac Asimov, Majel Barrett, Hal Clement (sci fi author), David Gerrold, Jeff Maynard (creator of the Andromeda Light Show), Gene Roddenberry, William Shatner, George Takei, and William Ware Theiss (ST costume designer). (Can you believe that guests were listed in alphabetical order rather than prominence? Bet Shatner would not allow that today!)
