Bradofsky, Hyman
   (b. 1906)
   Correspondent of HPL (1934–37). He was president of the NAPA in 1935–36 and came under vicious attack by other members (in part, perhaps, because he was Jewish); HPL defended him in the essay “Some Current Motives and Practices” (1936), which R.H.Barlow mimeographed and distributed. As editor of the amateur journal The Californian (1933f.), he offered unprecedented space for lengthy contributions of fiction, essays, and poetry. The Summer 1937 memorial issue is devoted to HPL, containing fine memoirs (including Bradofsky’s own poignant brief recollection in the column, “Amateur Affairs”) and hitherto unpublished writings by HPL.
