Twenty-three large boxes — almost 1,500 zines — dating from the late 1970s to present. Includes Star Trek, Star Wars, various cop shows, Stargate, The X-Files, and Robin Hood.
A collection of hundreds of zines from the late 1970s to the early 1990s, featuring fandoms such as Blake’s 7, Sherlock Holmes, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Star Trek, Max Headroom, and Forever Knight.
The Fanzine Archive Collection contains thousands of fanzines focused on Star Wars that were originally collected by Lucasfilm Ltd., producer of the Star Wars series. This collection was offered back to fans in the 1990s, and a California fan named Mariellen Wathne accepted it and began a lending library to distribute zines among fans. In addition to Star Wars fanzines, there are also many fanzines related to Star Trek, including some of the most important early pieces. (A fund in memory of Ming Wathne has been created at Iowa to support this collection. See this post for more details.)
