Vincent H. Gaddis

Vincent H. Gaddis wrote small pieces for Ray Palmer, first at Amazing, and later for Fate, Search and Mystic. Both a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians AND the Fortean Society, former police and court reporter, Gaddis also coined the term "Bermuda Triangle" in an article written for Argosy magazine in 1964.
During his editorial run at Ziff-Davis, Palmer seemed to steer the content of his cadre of faithful writers towards the areas he pursued into the 1950's.
For example, this four page article, "The Mystery Of Magic Drugs" by Vincent H. Gaddis.
Pretty out there stuff, even compared to Shaver, since mostly, (I think) this article is pretty accurate.

From Amazing Stories September 1949 -
The Mystery Of Magic Drugs by Vincent H. Gaddis.

PS. While i'm dealing with computer issues, i'll be using up a small backlog of previously prepared stuff and lots of re-posts. I'm hoping this will only be for a couple of weeks at most, but you never know.

PPS. I fixed the links in the post below.
