I'm working on a project for Gen Con's 50th where we are taking the schedules from all of the Gen Cons and putting them into a database format and putting it online for people to peruse and hopefully use for some game and popular culture research.  This is being done through the Digital Scholarship Center at Temple University and Gen Con LLC is aware and supportive of the project.  I've gotten a few Acaeum members involved already, and I am hoping one more of you can help out.  We have schedule info for all of the years except for 1973, and I am looking for a scan of that program if any of you have one.  I don't expect it to have a lot of information as most of them from that period are rather spartan, but we are out to be completionists after all.  If you can help out please send me a PM.

Have you checked with Randy Porter the GenCon historian?

I'll check in with Mike.  I've asked him about some other things in the past that he might have hung on to but not this, thanks.

No it will not, at least not at this time.  It will be possible to expand it after this phase, assuming we can find the programs, but to get this done and online in time for the 50th we need to limit things.

Hi Bill, I sent you a PM but figured I would post in here as well.  If you (or anyone else that has one) could send over pics of the schedule in that program it would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
