One of several pseudonyms of US teacher, screenwriter and author Thames Ross Williamson (1894-1961), best known under his own name for a nonfantastic tale, Woods Colt (1933). His work of sf interest is restricted to Prehistoric SF tales for children, In the Stone Age: A Boy's Story of the Early Paleolithic Period (1937) and A Tamer of Beasts: A Boy's Story of the Early Neolithic Period (1938); their intent is didactic, though they are written with novelistic verve. Williamson's books as by Waldo Fleming are nonfantastic adventures for boys. [JC]
