US illustrator. CS was active in sf for only a short time, most of his work being for ASTOUNDING SCIENCE-FICTION from 1935. He painted 6 ASF covers, the earliest May 1938 and the last Nov 1952, but is best remembered for his interior black-and-white ILLUSTRATION in that magazine; he was its major interior artist until he joined the US Army in 1942. His best work may be the idealized sketches of the heroic KimballKinnison for E.E. "Doc" SMITH's Grey Lensman (1939-40 ASF; 1951) and his drawings for Jack WILLIAMSON's THE LEGION OF TIME (1938 ASF; rev 1952). After WWII he worked mainly for newspapers.
