Peter Van Dresser




US ecology pioneer and Rocket experimenter who also wrote sf, with eight stories published in the 1930s, though his contribution is now almost forgotten since only one was in a genre magazine. He was editor of Astronautics, Journal of the American Rocket Society, a member of their Experiment Committee, and one of a number of authors who pledged a portion of their story earnings to the Experiment Fund. He performed his own experiments; his papers from that period are in the Smithsonian. Van Dresser stopped writing fiction in the late 1930s, around the time he left the ARS on political grounds; he devoted the rest of his life to promoting environmentally friendly lifestyles and published nonfiction books on this subject
