The Bogleheads Fund pioneer finds diehard fans in Miami
By Beatrice E. Garcia March 19, 2000 edition of The Miami Herald ... nvId=22888
Vanguards frugal ways and good performance have earned the company, and Bogle, a loyal following. The Bogleheads, as they call themselves, are diehards. Their gathering place had always been in cyberspace until a meeting in Miami nearly two weeks ago.

Here Come the Bogleheads

On Friday afternoon, when the group first gathers outside the hotel, a Boglehead wants to capture a group photo. "Cheese," she calls out from behind her lens, but not everyone smiles.

Finally the mood is just right. She snaps her picture.

Instead, how about talking to a committed, knowledgeable disciple of Vanguard founder John Bogle, the index-fund pioneer who ranks among the small investor's best friends? Welcome to the Vanguard Diehards message board(...)
The common-sense cult of John Bogle
By Kara McGuire, Star Tribune November 21, 2007 - 7:29 PM
Jeff McComas used to actively manage his investments, trying to time the market to boost his portfolio's returns. But then he happened upon an online forum seven years ago. Figuring he'd visit once and that would be it, he registered as "Chuck D"-- like the rapper from Public Enemy. But after spending hours on the forum, he ditched his former ways and became a Boglehead.
