The Brian Knapp Zines Collection is a collection of science fiction, particularly Star Trek, fanzines and convention materials spanning the years 1972-2003 that were donated to the University of Iowa Libraries Special Collections by Brian Knapp via the Organization for Transformative Works.

From the Collection Overview on the University of Iowa Libraries website:[1]

TThe Knapp Fanzine Collection consists of numerous fanzines collected by Connecticut-based fan Brian Knapp. Most of the zines deal with the television show Star Trek (many dating from the earlier years of Trek fandom), but other media properties chronicled in the zines include, among others, Doctor Who and Star Wars.

In addition to the zines, the collection also has a few program books from various science fiction conventions.
