(July 1, 1942--July 6, 2006)
Aka Dr. Gafia, rich brown was a long-time fanzine fan. He was an active fanzine reviewer and maintained a dictionary of fannish terms, , which is one of the sources used to create Fancyclopedia 3. In the ’60s, he founded, with Arnie Katz, the Brooklyn Insurgents, a fanzine club. He was a member of The Cult.
In mid December, 2001, Dr. Gafia's Fan Terms was added to Fanac.org. In late July, 2005, rich arranged to edit his work on-line and he continued this process, sort of a poor man's Wiki, until just before his death, the last update was made on May 13, 2006.
