(August 31, 1920 – May 23, 1944)
Walter J. Sullivan was an early fan who discovered sf in 1932 with ASF and fandom in 1937 when he subscribed to Amateur Correspondent. In November 1938, he "was enticed into real activity by Moskowitz and Taurasi" and became radio editor of Fantasy-News and an assistant editor of Vadjong.
Walt served in the Army as a radio operator in India during World War II and was killed in a plane crash in China in 1944, one of fandom’s few fatalities of the war. Born in New York, he went to school in New Mexico.
