(February 20, 1926 – January 16, 2006)
A San Francisco native, he had moved to LA by the 1940s. He was on the roster for Philcon, the 1947 Worldcon. He was a member of LASFS, though he resigned in a blowup in 1952 (see Fancyclopedia 2 entry under LASFS). The club honored him at a Fanquet three years later, though, so they must have made up.
Ed married Jessie Wilt, another LASFS member, in December 1957 in Las Vegas; they moved to the BArea, and had son, Anthony (named, like Ed’s pseudonym, for Anthony Boucher). The Clintons were among the parents who supported Walter Breen during the Breendoggle, contributing a strong pro-Breen statement to John and Bjo Trimble’s The Loyal Opposition.
He was a lover of music, especially Mozart and opera.
