(December 26, 1925 -- October 3, 1964)

A Philadelphia fan and one-time president of PSFS.

(He was occasionally confused with Murray Leinster, whose real name was Will F. Jenkins, notably at Discon 1 when fan Jenkins almost received GoH Jenkins's complimentary hotel room.)

He attended conventions regularly through the 1950s, including Loncon and Solacon. He was known in his own right as "the wittiest unpublished fan", though he occasionally had poems and humorous articles published in Cry and other fanzines. He also was the "Honorary Ex-Chairman of the Liverpool Science Fiction Society" and a member of the Fanoclasts.
