Very Sad News from Irwin Allen Fandom

6th August 2009

We have been very sad to learn of the death of Mike Bailey on Monday 3rd August following a brave battle with leukemia.  Mike was one of the most enthusiastic fans of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and his web site on Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea ( is a lasting tribute to his love of the series.

You can read more about Mike and his career as a radio host in Oregon in a news tribute at the Oregon Live web site.

We hope his work will continue to inspire Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea fans and help inform new generations of fans.  Mike is someone who will definitely live on through his work.
