(December 10, 1899 – May 29, 1969)

Louise Margurite Leipiar, a Los Angeles fan and sf writer, was a member of LASFS, active in the 1940s through ’60s. She was a member of the Cinvention. She edited at least one issue of Shaggy.

She wrote fiction under the pename L. Major Reynolds.

She introduced her daughter June Poulson (later Moffatt) to fandom; June’s husband Len Moffatt wrote in Shangri-L'Affaires 77 (October 1980) about her first LASFS meeting in 1947:

Louise had brought her daughter, June, to the club in the late forties ... and June almost never came back after her first meeting. Arthur Jean Cox was director and he believed in Keeping Order during the formal meeting. Louise, who loved to talk, was doing so at a time when she didn't have the floor. Jean finally told her to shut up or words to that effect, and Louise, highly insulted, stomped out of the room, taking June with her. June, new to fandom, said that she had that I-wish-I-could-drop-through-the-floor feeling. But thanks to the ghods of fandom, June did come back....
