Intellectual Brotherhood of Pro-Scientists
from Fancyclopedia 1 ca. 1944
A quasi-Michelist organization launched by Raymond van Houten and Peter Duncan, with a manifesto which they wanted fans to sign, denouncing the anti-scientific forces of the time, such as Frankenstein movies, and praising Science as the thing that would solve all problems. It was discussed at the 1940 Philco. A few liberals like Rothman took it seriously enuf to debate with them, but most of fandom either laughed at or ignored the movement.
