(?   -?   ) Astronomer and author, probably American, for the 1930s sf Pulp magazines, including "The Moon Conquerors" (Winter 1930 Science Wonder Quarterly), a Space Opera implausibly involving the Moon, though the tale is notable for the suggestion of an electromagnetic drive to launch a Spaceship to the Moon; its companion piece, "The War of the Planets" (Summer 1930 Wonder Stories Quarterly), is presented as the text of a work discovered on the Moon in the first novel describing the history of the solar system and how a black race established 'human' life on Earth about 30,000 years ago in Africa. Only the first tale was included in The Moon Conquerors (anth circa 1943). [MA/JC]
