He was a correspondent and friend of H. P. Lovecraft and was appointed by Lovecraft the executor of his literary estate. He collaborated with Lovecraft on at least six stories.

He was interested in letterpress printing and published two fanzines, The Dragon-Fly and Leaves. He seems to have gafiated by World War II, moving to Mexico in 1943.
