Harry Bates:
Science Fiction Technology and Ideas
Harry Bates (Hiram Gilmore Bates III) (b. 1900 - d. 1981) was an American science fiction editor and writer.

In 1964, Bates recalled his editorship of Astounding: "Long ago I was a party to the genesis of a magazine which persisted through thirty years and thirty millions of words. ... Astounding was a living being. I served it in its infancy and childhood, Orlin Tremaine brought it through youth and adolescence, John Campbell guided it through adulthood and maturity."
