Here’s the second batch of scans from Shel Dorf’s negatives from the 1974 San Diego Comic-Con, which was held at the El Cortez Hotel with Bill Lund as Chairman. (I received the negatives from Shel’s friend and cartooning partner Charlie Roberts. There are over two hundred pictures so I’m going to post them periodically in batches. (You can see the first batch at http://www.comicconmemories.com/1974-san-diego-comic-con-photos-batch-1-can-you-identify-people-in-the-pictures.)
Guests, fans, and committee members pictured include Forry Ackerman, Kirk Alyn, Frank Capra, Mike Friedrich, Jack Kirby, Russ Manning, Tom Orzechowski, Roy Thomas, Danton Burroughs, Camille “Caz” Cazedessus, Barry Alfonso, Igor Goldkind, and Eric Hoffman.
Where I was uncertain of a name, I just put down a question mark. If you would like to help identify these people in the pictures, so that the question marks can be replaced with names, please leave a comment or send me a message by clicking on the “CONTACT” tab at the top. I’ve numbered the pictures M026-M050 so you can easily specify which picture(s) you can identify people in.
Update 07/24/12: Thanks to Brent Anderson for identifying Walter Koenig in picture MO46.
Update 06/13/10: Thanks to Greg Koudoulian for identifying Jim Harmon, Frank Brunner, and Don Glut in pictures M031-M033 and M036-M037.
Update 06/13/10: Thanks to Bill Lund for also recognizing Jim Harmon and Frank Brunner in pictures M031-M033 and M036-M037 and for identifying this is as having been the Star*Reach panel. Bill also identified Don Newton and son in photos M043-M044. Pictures M045-M046 he identified as being from the masquerade for which Roger Freedman was Master of Ceremonies, and recognized Bjo Trimble and Wendayne Ackerman in M046.
