Bahnson, Agnew H, Jr

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1915-1964) US author, textile-machinery manufacturer and speculative thinker much involved in problems of Gravity; fittingly, his Near-Future political thriller, The Stars Are too High (1959), features a hoax in which fake Aliens with a real gravity-driven ship try to bring peace to the world. After his death in a plane crash, the University of North Carolina established the Agnew H Bahnson Professorship in Physics, whose recipients are funded for relatively short periods. [JC/PN]
