The L5 Society

Although Gerard K. O'Neill "himself was not involved in its leadership, the L5 Society was founded around his ideas and from his mailing list...

"The L5 Society was founded partly because of Arizona Congressman Morris Udall, who at the time was a serious candidate for President. Carolyn Henson arranged for a meeting between O'Neill and Udall, and Udall emerged quite enthusiastic about the idea. Udall asked for public recognition of his support, and a newsletter was needed for this. The first issue of the L5 News was published in September, 1975." [1]
