(???? -- )

A fan who went to school in Oberlin, OH before moving to Cambridge, MA to get a PhD in astronomy from Harvard. He was married to fellow fan Jean Young and were jointly known under the demolishism "J&Y" ("Jandy"). He was bearded in a time when beards were scarce (see also Poo).

He was one of the Balcony Insurgents, a member of FAPA and of the FATE Tape, and hero of one of the FAPA Blitzkriegs. He was briefly a member of the Boston Chapter of Campbell's IES (and attended its party celebrating Isaac Asimov's 40th birthday.)

He seems to have largely gafiated following his PhD at Harvard in the late 50s, and seems to have had a career in astronomy.
