Here is the program book in PDF (6 MB), or the same, but lower quality and a much smaller download (170 kB).
Here's a text-only transcription.
And here are individual page images, available in a range of qualities and file sizes. Most people want the middle column, in which the files have been substantially cleaned up to remove the grain of the paper, bleed through from adjacent pages, etc., but are still high resolution.

A print (or maybe the original?) of the cover art shows that there must have been at least a little numbering confusion surrounding this Minicon — shades of Minicon 14 — as it is labeled "Minicon Nine" out of the frame. Minicon 9 was a fallcon. I wonder planning for it started?
The Minicon 10 program book is in the public domain due to having been published between 1923 and 1977 without a copyright notice.
