1969 Nebula Awards

Presented at:
East – Les Champs, New York, New York on March 14, 1970
West – Hotel Claremont, Berkeley, California on March 14, 1970

The 1970 Nebula Awards were held as Les Champs restaurant in New York with 125 people attending and Isaac Asimov serving as Master of Ceremonies.  During the evening, Judy-Lynn Benjamin spoke about the difficulties of working with Harlan Ellison and a keynote address was given by Carl Sagan, focusing his attention on Mars. The event was limited to the banquet and awards ceremony, where Gordon Dickson presented the four winners with their Nebulas, as well as plaques presented to the publishers of the works.  As was typical of the era, a separate banquet was held on the same evening on the West Coast for authors who couldn’t attend the New York banquet.
