H. J. “Bert” Campbell was an editor of the British prozine Authentic Science Fiction during the 1950s.

He attended his first Worldcon in Philadelphia in 1953.

Tucker recalled:

“He was a young man (late 20s) who wore an immaculate British beard in a year when that habit had not yet taken hold in the States — not even Rusty Hevelin wore a beard in 1953. Uncouth people called them ‘beavers’ and sometimes made rude remarks.”

Tucker’s reminiscence of Bert Campbell appears in Spirits of Things Past No. 3, page 10.
