Subject: Cryonics Organization List 
Date: 8 Jan 1991

Here is my first pass at a list of cryonics-related organizations.  The list
is in two parts:
  (1) those organizations with suspension capability (or that are working
      toward achieving suspension capability) and
  (2) those organizations that support cryonics in other ways (including life
      extension publications run by cryonicists).
Please let me know of any omissions or corrections!
                                       - Kevin Q. Brown

Alcor, ACS, and CI have suspension capability.  The Cryonics Association of
Canada does not perform cryonic suspensions (but has done one permafrost
interment in Northern Canada).  I am not sure what the newly formed
International Cryonics Foundation supports, but my guess is that they would
make arrangements with Trans Time.  I have not included domestic (USA)
coordinators (with local transport capability) associated with Alcor or ACS.

    Robert Cardwell

I have no recent news about the New Zealand organization, associated, I
believe, with ACS.  Here is the information from a couple of years ago:

    33 Cannington Road
    Dunedin, New Zealand
    Telex, 5793 AI UNIV
    Telefax (64) <24> 778681


These organizations are not directly associated with cryonic suspensions,
but they do support cryonics in other ways.  I have not included cryonics
dinner meetings or cryonics discussion groups.

    Reanimation Foundation
    c/o Saul Kent

    The Reanimation Foundation is set up to enable you to "take it with you"
    and provide financial support for your reanimation, reeducation, and
    reentry.  It is based in Liechtenstein, which does not have a Rule Against
    Perpetuities, and thus allows financial assets to be owned by a person long
    after the person is declared legally dead.

    The Society for Venturism

            $12./yr. USA, $15./yr. Canada & Mexico, $18./yr. overseas.
    The Venturists are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt scientific, religious, and
    educational organization, serving as a cryonics "religion" and forum
    for immortalist philosophy "promoting immortality through science."

    Fred and Linda Chamberlain have gone back to school and no longer can
    support their cryonics-related organizations/publications: Lifepact,
    Federation of Cryonics Societies (FOCUS), and LifeQuest.  Lifepact was
    created to form a mutual support group of cryonicists who will help
    ensure each other's reanimation, reeducation, and reentry.  The Lifepact
    duties apparently are now being taken over by Norm Lewis and Jim Stevenson.
    I don't know who, if anyone, is supporting FOCS (an organization for
    promoting self-regulation among the cryonics suspension organizations)
    or LifeQuest (cryonicist and immortalist fiction).
