I don't know why I am looking so serious here with the late great Jon Pertwee (right)... I don't think I knew the photo was being taken at this exact moment (I would have moved closer to Jon). October 1985 at Whovent85. Photo by Louis Trapani

Jon Pertwee (right) was always a blast to meet in person. Warm, hilarious, fun, and real all sum up the man. He is greatly missed. Photo taken October 1985 at Whovent85. Photo by Louis Trapani

WLIW Pledge Drive Night

WLIW Pledge Drive Night

The Gallifreyan Embassy would usually take WLIW (the Long Island PBS station that showed Doctor Who at the time) by storm during their pledge drives volunteering during their British science-fiction line up nights. Here is the gang back in the '80s in this classic photo by Keith. From left to right is Louis, Andrea, Amy, Pete "Bug", Denise, Al (sitting in front on phone), Ken, Brian (standing behind Ken), PJ, Rob (all the way in the back), Tim (front standing), and Keith himself (standing). Thank you Keith for allowing us to share this photo.

Louis Trapani

Louis Trapani founded the Gallifreyan Embassy (GE) in June of 1985 to serve the growing fandom centered around Doctor Who and other British science fiction during the mid-80s in the US. Originally a local organization with local meetings, today it is international, serving the global community.

In 1989, Louis graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree from the School of Visual Arts in New York where he majored in the media arts department.
