Notes:

Carr fabricated the story of the "autopsy" conducted on the aliens in the supposed Roswell, NM UFO crash. He was a child prodigy with published magazine articles at age 10, an international best-selling novel at age 18, & a Hollywood screen writer at 20. In addition to the short story cited above, he had 3 novels and at least a dozen short stories, mostly science fiction. Like many of his colleagues, he became a member of the USA Communist party during the 1930's. He actually lived in Russia from 1933 to 1938 (during the worst of Stalin's purges), where he became totally disenchanted with Communism. He returned to the US and renounced his party membership. He refused to testify against his former comrades during the HUAC witch-hunts of the 1950's. Contributed by his son, Timothy Spencer Carr, July 2, 1997.
