John W. Lincoln of Stonington, Connecticut edited and published this magazine. He was an architect and had a strong interest in steam and non-i.c. power generation. His book "Methanol and Other Ways Around the Gas Pump" was a significant contribution to alternate energy in the 1970s.

Spence in Starkey, Yates Co., New York in 1920. Byron attended Cornell, graduating with a B.S. in 1925.
