1933-1950


This information is solely about his work in periodicals, provided here as a way to share information with anyone who might be able to help me pinpoint publication information and possibly locate copies of these works to scan. Most of the work listed were for pulp romances, primarily Munsey's All-Story Love Stories and for United Features stories syndicated in newspapers in the US and Canada. I have pinpointed one in Street & Smith's Love Story. I also have been able to locate his work in the more upscale magazines -- the "slicks". Please contact me at margoburns@gmail.com if you can help me locate any of these in print. Thank you!

I want to thank the following people for their assistance in my own personal kaimiloa [= "the long search" in Hawai'ian]:

To the right is the image of one of the pages from 1933 in the first account book.
