Linda's 1980 Encore Award

A Collector

Linda was also major collector of items related to that show.

From the Zebra Con #2's first progress report (1980):


It all started for Linda in 1972, when she saw an unknown actor on The Sixth Sense. Turing to the others watching with her, she said "That guy's gonna make it." The actor was Paul Michael Glaser. She followed him through The Waltons, Kojak, The Rockford Files, The Streets of San Francisco, parts of Trapped Beneath the Sea. Linda started watching Starsky & Hutch because of Paul, and got hooked on it. She began to collect stuff on Paul and the show, and now her collection is stacked to the ceiling. Some of her collection is on display in the dealer's room.

From Shootout #10 (1985):

Linda needs no introduction to most fans, having been involved with fandom from its beginning. She was one of two Guests of Honour at the original, first Zebra Con, and has been 'accused', in jest, of breaking more people's budgets, due to finding S&H, PMG and DS related items to supply requests from fans. And, if you're seeking something S&H (no '/'), she will be happy to try and find it for you. Linda's own collection includes film clips, scripts, puzzles, games, dolls, gun sets, 8x10s, live shots, posters and many other items. Fans are always welcome to visit and go through the collection, and she's had people from other countries and US States do just that.
