Frank K. Kelly (1914-2010)

SF writer Frank King Kelly, 95, died June 11, 2010 in Santa Barbara CA. Kelly began publishing SF with “The Light Bender” in Wonder Stories (1931), and published a number of stories, mostly dark space operas, until he stopped writing fiction in 1935. His stories were eventually collected in Starship Invincible (1979). In 1996, he was inducted into the First Fandom Hall of Fame.

Born June 12, 1914 in Kansas City MO, Kelly served in WWII, and worked as a journalist, non-fiction writer, and speechwriter for Harry Truman. He co-founded the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions in 1959, and the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation in 1982, and remained active in both well into the 21st century. The Frank K. Kelly Lecture on Humanity’s Future was established in his honor in 2002.
