Subject: Cryonics Organization List (Revised) 
Date: 19 Mar 1991

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

Here is the list of organizations with cryonic suspension capability (or that
are working to achieve cryonic suspension capability).  I have not included
domestic (USA) coordinators (with local transport capability) associated with
Alcor or ACS.

Alcor is the membership and caretaking organization and the suspensions are
performed by Cryovita, which is located at the same address.

(but has done one permafrost interment in Northern Canada).

    40 Bay Street

has taken on suspension customers directly who didn't go through either
non-profit organization.

their own building and laboratory, and have initial training in transport and

believe, with ACS.  Here is the information from a couple of years ago:

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.

political support favorable to cryonicists.

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.

Lifepact was created to form a mutual support group of cryonicists who will
