(1916-1988) US writer and engineer, author of some two dozen stories, beginning with "Special Flight" for Astounding in May 1939 and ending with "The Big Dish" (November 1986 Analog). As Walter Bupp he also wrote a series of linked Telekinesis tales for Analog in the early 1960s, beginning with "Vigorish" (June 1960 Astounding/Analog). Other short-story pseudonyms were William C Bailey, used 1951-1953, and Joseph Tinker, used for a single story: "Tinker's Dam" (July 1961 Analog). Berryman is not the poet John Berryman (1914-1972), and Walter Bupp is not a pseudonym for Randall Garrett, as (in the past) was often stated. [JC/DRL]
