(1916-2013) US naval officer during World War Two, diplomat, teacher/professor at Middlebury College, Vermont, and author whose first sf novel, A World Unknown (1975), is of some interest for its portrayal of an Alternate-History USA dominated by a Latin civilization that has never been influenced by Christianity – Jesus Christ having never existed. In The Orange R (1978), mutants known as "Roberts" are forced to live in the radioactive wastelands of a Dystopian future America. [JC]
