(March 1, 1937 – November 18, 2007)

Sidney Coleman, a longtime fan, is probably best known as a highly regarded physicist at Harvard. (He was very respected and well-liked in the field and has been described as "the best physicist who never won a Nobel prize.")

Coleman was one of the founders of Advent:Publishing and an occasional reviewer for F&SF. He wrote for many fanzines, including Izzard, Lighthouse, Innuendo, and Trapdoor.

In the 1950s–60s, he was based in Chicago. He performed with CHIAC in the fannish plays they put on at Pittcon, the 1960 Worldcon.

He died of complications from Parkinson’s Disease, after a long decline.
