(1902-1994) US librarian and editor of Great Science Fiction Stories (anth 1964), reprinting material ranging from Jules Verne and H G Wells to late-1950s Genre SF. This, to an effect of some bibliographic confusion, was reissued as The Best of Sci-Fi 3 (anth 1964) – as though it were part of the retitled and bizarrely renumbered UK sequence of Judith Merril's US-published "year's best" Anthologies.
