Stan Thompson

Literary Career as a 12-Year Old?

The article below appeared about the time that Seaborg and Thompson first met. It doesn't take much imagination to envision the two boys each submitting an article to a magazine favored by Houdini. Was that the case, Young Stan showed more potential for a "literary career" than his friend Glenn.

The Internet is a wonderful vanity press. It is a bully pulpit that costs the author of a website almost nothing. Therefore, it falls on the reader to exercise increased vigilence while browsing websites because the the layers of "editors" and "publishers" have been removed from the information transfer process and so that anybody can say most anything without regard for the facts or truth. This website is no exception. For that reason, I have tried to provide copies of enough of the original materials so that the reader can make his or her own interpretations of the source documents that led me to the conclusions expressed here.
