Pulpcon Chairman Bob Gorton

Jun 19, 2018 by

PulpFest has learned that Bob Gorton, former chairman of Pulpcon, passed away on May 31. A retired mathematics professor at the University of Dayton, Bob was known for his dry sense of humor. He served as an important bridge between the lengthy term of Rusty Hevelin as Pulpcon chairman and the founding of PulpFest in 2009. A quiet man, Bob was the winner of the Lamont Award in 2002, presented at Pulpcon 31 in Dayton, Ohio. He will be missed.
