(August 19, 1924 – ????)

Thomas Bell Wright was a fanartist from Martinez, California, active in the late 1930s and early ’40s who contributed art to most of the day's fanzines. He was a charter member (and failed candidate for President) of the National Fantasy Fan Federation (N3F) in 1941.

His platform statement for president of N3F appears in Bonfire #1, along with that of Bob Studley's for vice-president.

He may have been the inspiration for a bit part in Anthony Boucher's Rocket to the Morgue.

He described himself in Starlight 1 (Spring 1941, p. 8):

Tom Wright, 16 and rather small, started reading Stf when really young, keeping it up continuously since then. Claims to be an artist, having had covers on many magazines. Tom puts out The Comet which is well liked, and is co-editing DAWN with Joe Fortier. He is secretary of the GGF and is running for president of the National Fantasy Fan Federation. Not quite sure as to exactly what he wants to be such as chemist, editor (very doubtful), etc. Would like to have a drawing published professionally, but it seems doubtful. He has helped a lot in bringing "Section 2" on the map.
