Whew. Just got done publishing Fred Patten's revised (and now illustrated) Chronology of Furry Fandom, 1966–1996 on Flayrah.
This is the same document that was published all those years ago in Yarf!, but with many updates and additions from Fred - and, of course, lots and lots of images, both linked and embedded.
LiveJournal's RSS feed processor is down right now, so it's not showing up on flayrah yet - you guys are the first on LJ to hear! Go read and learn something new about the fandom's early years. :-)
