Notice biographique

Chester Cuthbert was a noted and active SF fan in Winnipeg, where his house was often the center of fannish gatherings and activities. As a young man, he wrote two science fiction stories that were both published in Hugo Gernsback's Wonder Stories in 1934, and he had an additional story published in Return to Wonder in 1969. His SF book collection was large and well-known, and in 2007 he donated its 60,000 volumes to the University of Alberta.
