Peter Van Dresser




(:redirect quiet=1 PeterVanDresser:)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
