Rienow, Leona

(1903-1983) US author whose short Dark Pool Prehistoric SF sequence for children comprises The Bewitched Caverns (1948) and The Dark Pool (1949). With her husband Robert Rienow (1909-1989), a political scientist, she later wrote The Year of the Last Eagle (1970), a sour Near-Future comedy about Ecology, set in 1989. The hero's job, dejectedly earthbound after a decade in synchronous orbit, is to locate the last bald eagles (the national bird of America), if any still exist. [JC/PN]
