Norb met Leigh in college at St. Louis University in the 1940s, when a copy of Thrilling Wonder Stories fell out of her notebook, they told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in 1967:

“It was such a terrible triangle, I had to keep it hidden,” she said. “But we looked at each other, then we looked at the magazine, and we said simultaneously, ‘Oh, you read those things, too.’ And that was how it all began. Later, we took a whole stack along on our honeymoon.”

He was a cartographer.
