(January 18, 1934 – October 30, 2007)

Julius Henry "Hank" Reinhardt was a long-time mainstay in Southern fandom — he helped establish ASFO, the earliest science fiction club in Atlanta, in 1950. He was known for his knowledge of weapons and fighting styles, and he was a cofounder of the mail order business Museum Replicas, Ltd. In 1967, he introduced the SCA to Southern fandom and he won the Rebel Award in 1973 and the Rubble Award in 1997. He was a member of Myriad.

He was married twice, first to Janet, who predeceased him and with whom he had two daughters, Dana and Cathy. His second wife was Baen Books publisher Toni Weisskopf. He died in Athens, Georgia, of a staph infection contracted in the wake of heart bypass surgery.
