Literary critic and educator, born in Newark, New Jersey, USA.

He also published many essays on popular culture as well as collections of short stories and two novels. A University of Wisconsin PhD, he taught at the University of Montana (1941–64) and in 1964 joined the faculty of the State University of New York at Buffalo.
