Historia biográfica

Sharon Faye Wilbur is a career librarian and Star Trek aficionado. She served as a Civil Service librarian for the Army for 33 years. She served at Fort Sill, White Sands Missile Range, Fort Hood, Fort Leavenworth, and Fort Bliss, and was at West Point for some one-third of her career. Ms. Wilbur retired in 1999, but returned to part-time librarianship in the Fort Worth Library system.

She developed an interest in science fiction as a child and teen in the 1950s as she had three brothers and read everything that they did.

During the 1970s when she was a librarian at West Point, she became a member of the National Organization for Women. This triggered an interest in women writers of science fiction and fantasy and women as characters in science fiction and fantasy that has continued to the present. This was her original focus point in collecting and reading science fiction and fantasy by and about women that has continued to the present. Miss Wilbur has always loved animals especially cats. This was another focus point in her collecting. She now had an interest in animals as well as an interest in women in science fiction and fantasy.

She became interested in science fiction conventions during the 1970s and attended many in New York City and Boston. Her most interesting story about one con was one she attended in New York City. Isaac Asimov was present. She attended a reception for the authors and was kissed by him. She later realized that he liked to hug and kiss women. She attended many World Cons over the years. She learned that Cons were a good place to gain knowledge of science fiction and Star Trek and to add to her collection.

Miss Wilbur watched the Original Star Trek series in college. She became more involved in Starfleet during the time that she lived in Killeen, TX and worked at Fort Hood. She helped organize the first Shuttle in Killeen that became the USS Kepler. She was active in the USS Nomad as well as the USS Mir. She primarily collected everything to do with the original series. She has eased off collecting but is still a member of Starfleet and still watches the Star Trek series on television as well as reading Star Trek novels.
