(July 1, 1942 – July 6, 2006)
Aka Dr. Gafia, rich brown was a long-time fanzine fan, active since his teens. He was an active fanzine reviewer and maintained a dictionary of fannish terms, Dr. Gafia's Fan Terms, which was one of the sources used to create Fancyclopedia 3. In the ’60s, he founded, with Arnie Katz, the Brooklyn Insurgents, a fanzine club. He was a member of The Cult and one of the Cry Crowd.
In mid December, 2001, Dr. Gafia's Fan Terms was added to Fanac.org. In late July, 2005, rich arranged to edit his work online and he continued to do so until just before his death; the last update was made on May 13, 2006.
