George T. Wetzel

(d. November 9, 1983)

A fan who was active mostly in the 1940s and 50s, gafiated and later became known for his Lovecraft scholarship. He was a member of The Esoteric Order of Dagon and the Baltimore SFL.

He seems to have been a difficult character, having been used as an example of the worst kind of fuggheadedness: for example, he apparently wrote poison pen letters to the employers of fans he disliked. The resultant ostracism led to his gafiation.
