He inspired the (now obsolete) term Gerberize. In his early teens, in the pages of Cry of the Nameless in the mid-1950s, Les defended someone to such excess that "to Gerberize" became the fannish verb defining this practice while "to be Gerberized" meant having the practice performed on you. It has to be so overblown that even the person being defended would think so. The term was somewhat unfair to Gerber, who learned from the experience and never repeated it.
