Biographical information[edit]

The Internet Speculative Fiction Database has a bibliography here but no biographical information. Third-hand information from The Eldritch Dark forums states that there is some information in Far Below and Other Horrors by Robert Weinberg but only repeats that he was from Illinois (USA) and died at the age of seventeen. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 00:31, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

Additional: According to the "Miskatontic University Library", the credit for "Night of Unrest" in the September, 1937 issue of Weird Tales was "Posthumous verse, by a young Illinois poet". So he probably died in 1936-7, giving an approximate birth year of 1919-20. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 02:29, 25 November 2011 (UTC)
The Lesser-Known Writers blog has a short biography. Basic details: b. St. Charles, Illinois, 23 July 1912; d. Elgin, Illinois, 22 July 1935. Died in hospital after suffering a nervous breakdown. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 01:53, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
