"I still live..."
The Burroughs Bibliophiles, founded in 1961, is an international organization consisting of the fans of the writings of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Its president is Clarence B. "Bob" Hyde. Articles and information contributed by members are published in a quarterly magazine called "The Burroughs Bulletin", originally begun by Vern Coriell in 1947 as the first Edgar Rice Burroughs fan magazine ever published. The current editor is George T. McWhorter, curator of the Burroughs Memorial Collection which is housed at the University of Louisville, Kentucky.
The Bibliophiles also issue a monthly newsletter, "The Gridley Wave", which features news of interest to readers and collectors, especially that about new editions of ERB stories, new films and televison productions, and upcoming Dum-Dum meetings (annual convention) and Bibliophile Chapter meetings around the world.
The National Capital Panthans, host for the 1998 Dum-Dum, is the Washington-Baltimore-Annapolis area chapter of the Bibliophiles. An active discussion group through meetings and its PanthaNet e-mail links, the Panthans gather each month, have a newsletter, publish a "Journal" available only to active members, and maintain a web site at www.taliesan.com/panthans.htm.
If you are a collector, fan or interested in the stories of Edgar Rice Burroughs, the Burroughs Bibliophiles is one organization you cannot do without. For further information about the Panthans and the Bibliophiles, send an e-mail to
