Garby, Lee Hawkins

(1890-1953) US author, wife of the chemist Dr Carl Garby (1890-1930), a school-friend of E E "Doc" Smith, with whom she collaborated between 1915 and 1920 on the manuscript of The Skylark of Space: The Tale of the First Inter-Stellar Cruise (August-October 1928 Amazing; 1946; cut rev 1958), for which she was credited. The 1958 abridgement of this hugely influential Space Opera seems unlikely to have eliminated her contribution, which according to Smith focused on dialogue and other people things, but she was no longer listed as co-author.
