H. P. "Sandy" Sanderson

Harold Peter "Sandy" Sanderson was a fan in the UK in the 1950s-1960s before moving to the US. In the late 50s he was a member of the intensely prolific Inchmery Fandom (along with Joy Clarke and Vincent Clarke). Inchmery Fandom broke up in 1960 when Joy Clarke divorced Vincent Clarke and left him and their baby daughter to move to the US with Sanderson.

He published Clause and Goontact (with Joy Clarke and Vincent Clarke for OMPA) and is also remembered for the hoax he perpetuated in the early 50s with his creation of the Joan W. Carr persona.

His photo appears on page 150 of Warner's A Wealth of Fable (SCIFI, 1992)
