I haven't posted anything lately as I was writing a new book on Vancouver's Expo 86, due out this December from Arcadia Publishing. I thought I would get back into practice with a look at Seymour D. Fair, the official mascot of the 1984 New Orleans World's Fair.
When Seymour first appeared in publicity material he was always referred to as "our unnamed pelican mascot." A local market chain later sponsored a contest to name him. He has also shown up in some material as "Seemore D. Fair". The fair later added an alligator mascot, but I have not found anything naming him.
