The events of Gen Con can only tell us so much about what took at the convention.  We know, for example, that many other events and activities took place that are not detailed in any of the programs. To gain more perspective on Gen Con and its events we must turn to the people who have attended over the years.  Attendees are even more varied than the show's events, and in that vein we have strived to collect short oral histories from Gen Con attendees of different eras and with different reasons for attending or roles within the convention.

Interviews were recorded either in person, over the phone, or conducted via email.  Audio recordings with transcriptions are provided when applicable.

If you believe there is someone else we should interview please contact us at with more information.
