crowsThe primary benefit of Oz Club membership is receiving three issues annually of our journal, The Baum Bugle. The Bugle includes popular and scholarly articles about Oz and its creators, with biographical, historical, and critical studies as well as collectors’ checklists. Commentary on the people and places within the Oz books appears frequently. There are also features on Oz in the movies and on stage, reviews of new editions of books about Oz or its authors, and current Oz news. The magazine is illustrated with rare photographs and drawings, and its covers are full color.

Available through Lulu.com is Oziana, our annual compilation of original Oz short stories. Members also receive 20% off listed pricing at shop.OzClub.org, with the exception of Bibliographia Baumiana which has its own special pricing for members. 

The Club promotes annual conventions in different areas of the country each year. These gatherings typically feature lectures, talks, papers, films, and performances; displays of rare Oz and Baum materials; Oz quizzes; and auctions of hard-to-find Oz and Baum items. Mailings will keep you advised of the locations, dates, and costs of events.

  1. I am a member starting last December. I am waiting to receive your magazine? Please send ASAP! Thanks. Mary

  2. I once was friends with Fred Meyer of Kinderhook, Illinois, who, with Justin Schiller began the Wizard of Oz fan Club.

    Does anyone know if he is still alive? I was a child when we met and he was a student at the University of Illinois. He introduced me to all the Oz books.

    (He was Prince Plumpity and I was the Jinn Baby.)

    I last spoke with him in 1966 or 1967.

  3. Ginny, thank you for writing! I knew Fred as well, both as the Oz Club secretary and as a friend at the conventions. Sadly, he passed away in 2004 at the age of 78. He was in a lot of ways, the spirit of the club to many of us. He is still missed. Do you have any photographs of you and Fred in Oz costumes, or any special memories you’d like to share?

  4. I have been a fan for sixty years. I have alot of books and collectables. Even have my son loving wizard of oz.

  5. Fred was a treasure of a guy and a wealth of Oz information. He and I were penpals in the 90s, and I still keep our correspondence as a reminder of his kindness.

  6. Not at this time. We’d love to have some our our members there put on an event however!

  7. I’m a huge wizard of oz fan i was raised with the wizard of oz when i was a little boy i still watch The wizard of oz
