(1908-1971) US author and sf fan, briefly active in the 1930s; he was president of an early Fandom club, the Scienceers, and edited The Time Traveller: Science Fiction's Only Fan Magazine in the early 1930s. He is now remembered on two counts: as the "author" of "Across the Ages" (August-September 1933 Amazing), which was plagiarized from "The Heat Wave" (April 1929 Munsey's Magazine) by Robert Ord and Marion Ryan; and as the author of The Cavemen of Venus (1932 chap), a story in pamphlet form which seems to have been the first independent fiction published by the soon-to-be-active American fan press. The publisher was Conrad H Ruppert (see Small Presses and Limited Editions). [JC]
