When you read a book from cover to cover, the first words from the author
are not necessarily the title (often a hard fought compromise between
publisher and writer) but the overlooked sentence or two that comprise the
dedication. Sometimes the dedicatee is well known, or the connection to the
author is obvious or explained within the dedication itself. Often, though,
the honored recipient of the author’s esteem is an enigma. The impatient
reader, eager to get to grips with the story, might be forgiven for skipping
the dedication page altogether. The reader or researcher who wants to get
every nuance of meaning from the tale would do well to tarry a while and
ponder on the reason behind the dedication.
Why that person, why that book? Is it possible to identify their
influence within the book itself or is it a more general inspiration or
influence that is being acknowledged? Looked at as a whole, do the
dedications give clues as to any alteration in the opinions or enthusiasms
of the author over time? Can anything be deduced from the omission of someone
as well as their inclusion…there is endless scope for speculation.
Unfortunately, given the intensely personal nature of some dedications, it
is difficult to convert speculation to certainty.
Robert Heinlein’s work has been subject to piercing scrutiny. Individual
books have been dissected and debated, trends in his oeuvre have been
identified and analyzed but the dedications themselves have been overlooked.
This article documents recent research by the authors to determine, as
best we can, who each of the dedicatees are and, where possible, what their
relationship with Heinlein was. There is still more to be discovered but we
hope that this list will provide a useful starting point.
Robert Heinlein wrote many books, and those books were often dedicated to
more than one person. Faced with over a hundred names, some of which were
first names only, with no clues at all as to the identity of the dedicatee,
any researcher would be entitled to quail a little. We did, but we knew we
had an ace in the hole: Virginia Heinlein, whose astounding recall of details
and willingness to assist in this project was the only thing that enabled us
to get it to this stage of completeness. To her and those kind people who
answered our tentative queries with a wealth of personal memories and
additional data, we say a heartfelt thank you.
We began our research with the easy ones; Heinlein dedicated several books
to Ginny, his wife, one to his parents…these were dealt with in minutes.
Next came names we recognized from our own bookshelves; giants in the
world of science fiction to us, personal friends to Heinlein himself. Some
dedications did have full names and a trawl through various reference books
including The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction,
Grumbles From The Grave, James Gifford’s
Robert A Heinlein: A Reader’s Companion, and
biographies of contemporaries of Heinlein’s gave us more answers.
We were starting to slow down when another invaluable source filled in
some blanks. At the end of Number of The Beast is
a section entitled “L’Envoi,” containing many names, fictional and real, of
people at Lazarus Long’s party to end all parties. Simon Slavin and more
recently, Francesco Spreafico, have, with the assistance of dozens of
Heinlein fans, managed to track down the name and origin of everyone at that
party. It was not really surprising to find that many of those on the guest
list were important enough to Heinlein to have a book or two dedicated to
Finally we asked those people with a special knowledge of Heinlein to
complete what was beginning to feel like a gigantic crossword puzzle; Jim
Gifford and Bill Patterson were particularly useful at this stage. When we
turned to the ultimate authority, Virginia Heinlein, who, with a few
invaluable emails, allowed us to bring the first stage of a most enjoyable
and interesting project to a close.
The next step was to link the names to the books and try to establish
what Heinlein had in mind when he chose each dedicatee. Sometimes the reason
is fairly obvious, as in the case of a close relative, sometimes we
discovered connections that were amusing, enlightening and intriguing.
Here then is the list, as complete as we can make it at this time.
[Several books were published without dedications. The first such was
Orphans of the Sky (1963), possibly because it
was published first in the U.K. by Gollancz, and only later in the U.S. by
Putnam’s. The collections The Worlds of Robert A.
Heinlein (1966) and The Notebooks of Lazarus
Long (1978) also had no dedications, although
Expanded Universe, which included
The Worlds of Robert A. Heinlein within its text
did have one. Tramp Royale and
Take Back Your Government! were first published
posthumously, decades after they were written and so they too were left
- Rocket Ship Galileo (1947) was dedicated
“For Colin Matt and Buddy.” As we learned in “Regarding Leslyn” [James, 26],
Colin was Colin Hubbard, the son of Keith Hubbard, Leslyn Heinlein’s sister.
Since this was Heinlein’s first attempt at a boy’s book, he had Colin read
the first few chapters to gauge his reaction. “Matt” is Matt Cartmill, son
of Cleve Cartmill (1908 – 1964) by his first marriage, and “Buddy” is Buddy
Heinlein, the son of Larry Heinlein, Robert’s brother. Cleve Cartmill was a
member of the Mañana Literary Society whose members included Heinlein
himself and several other authors who would become well known in the SF
- Beyond This Horizon (1948) was dedicated
“For Cal, Mickey and both J’s.” “Cal” is Caleb Laning, Heinlein’s best
friend. “Mickey” was Caleb’s wife, and “the two J’s” are his daughters,
Gillian (known as Jill) and Judith (known as Judy).
- Space Cadet (1948)
was dedicated “For William Ivar Bacchus.” He is the son of Louise Heinlein
Bacchus, one of Heinlein’s sisters. William gave Heinlein information on
scouting which shows up in several stories from that time period. Ivar is a
Heinlein family name, and it was Heinlein’s father’s middle name.
- The Day After Tomorrow/Sixth Column (1949)
“For John S. Arwine.” John Arwine was an Annapolis classmate of Heinlein’s
who resigned before graduation and went into publicity work. Arwine may have
been the model for the character “Whitey” Ardmore [Gifford, 171].
- Red Planet (1949) was dedicated “For Tish.”
She is Patricia Kilpatrick, stepdaughter of Rex Heinlein.
- Farmer in the Sky (1950) was “For Sandy.”
Sandy is a nickname of Andrew Lermer, the son of Heinlein’s youngest sister,
Mary Jean. Here we have another connection between the dedicatee and the
book, since the protagonist’s sir name is also Lermer.
- The Man Who Sold The Moon (1950) “To Ginny.”
This is the first of several dedications to Heinlein’s third wife, Virginia
- Waldo and Magic, Inc. (1951) was dedicated
“John and Doña.” “John” is John W. Campbell (1910 – 1971), “Doña” his first
wife. Both writer and editor, John Campbell’s name is firmly linked with
Robert Heinlein’s work because it was to his magazine,
Astounding Science Fiction, that Heinlein sent
his early story, “Life Line,” in 1939. Their working relationship produced
some of the best known stories of what was to be called the “Golden Age” of
science fiction. It also contained some friction, and after World War II,
their friendship gradually faded as Heinlein moved beyond the pulps into the
“slicks” and novel writing.
- The Green Hills of Earth (1951) was dedicated
“To my parents,” who were Bam Lyle Heinlein and Rex Ivar Heinlein.
- Between Planets (1951): “For Scott and Kent”
refers to Scott and Kent Nelson, the two sons of Heinlein’s lawyer, Al
- Tomorrow, The Stars (1951) was to “Dorothy
and Clare.” This dedication is to Heinlein’s younger brother Jay Clare
Heinlein and his wife Dorothy.
- The Puppet Masters (1951) was dedicated “To
Lurton Blassingame.” Mr. Blassingame was Heinlein’s literary agent for many
- The Rolling Stones/Space Family Stone (1952)
was “For LUCKY and DOC and BARBARA.” This dedication is to Lucky and Doc
Herzberger, neighbors of the Heinleins in Colorado Springs, and their
- Assignment in Eternity (1953) “For Sprague
and Catherine” is dedicated to L. Sprague de Camp and his wife Catherine
(1907 – 2000). De Camp (1907 – 2000) was a science fiction writer, a long-time
friend of Heinlein, and a co-worker at the Naval Air Experimental Station in
Philadelphia during World War II. Catherine, born Catherine Adelaide Crook,
also worked as a science fiction writer in partnership with her husband.
- Starman Jones (1953) “For my friend Jim
Smith.” Smith was the third son of a daughter of E. J. King, who was
Heinlein’s commander on the Lexington during the 1930’s. King was later
Admiral in charge of the Pacific Fleet during World War II.
- Revolt in 2100 (1953) “For Stan and Sophia
Mullen.” Stan Mullen (1911 – 1973) was a pulp science fiction writer and
author of three science fiction books. Sophia Mullen was his wife.
- The Star Beast (1954) “For Diane and Clark.”
Diane and Clark Russell were children of neighbors of the Heinleins in
Colorado Springs. Their father, Jim Russell, owned a local television station.
Clark Russell may have been a model for the Clark Fries character in
Podkayne of Mars.
- Tunnel in the Sky (1954) was dedicated “For
Jeannie and Bibs.” Jeannie and Vivian (“Bibs”) Rubens were daughters of
friends of the Heinleins.
- Time For the Stars (1956) “For Bill and Rob
Davis” refers to William and Robert Davis, both sons of Dr. Robert Davis and
his wife Peg, who were friends of the Heinleins.
- The Door Into Summer (1956) was dedicated
“For A. P. and Phyllis, Mick and Annette, Aelurophiles All.” “A. P.” refers
to William Anthony Parker White (1911 – 1968), science fiction writer, who
usually worked under the pseudonym of Anthony Boucher. He was a friend of
Heinlein and author of Rocket to the Morgue
under another pseudonym, H. H. Holmes. This was a detective story in which
the detective is helped in solving the case by thinly-disguised members of
the real-life Manãna Literary Society. “Phyllis” is Phyllis White, Boucher’s
wife. “Mick” is Jesse Francis McComas (1911 – 1978), who later became editor
of the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction
along with Boucher, and “Annette” was Annette McComas, his wife.
- Double Star (1957) was “To Henry and
Catherine Kuttner.” Henry (1914 – 1958) and his wife Catherine (1911 – 1987)
were long-time friends of the Heinleins. Both wrote science fiction
(Catherine under her maiden name, C. L. Moore). Catherine was the first to
use the phrase “The Green Hills of Earth” as a song title in her classic
short story “Shambleau.” Heinlein used the title in his own story and, when
he realized its source, asked and immediately received permission for its
use [Gifford, 93].
- Citizen of the Galaxy (1957) was dedicated
“To Fritz Leiber.” Fritz Leiber (1910 – 1992) was an Episcopal Minister,
Shakespearean Actor, Editor, Speech and Drama Instructor, award-winning
science fiction Author, and cat aficionado.
- Have Space Suit - Will Travel (1958) was
“For Harry and Barbara Stine.” George Harry Stine (1928 – 1997) was a science
fiction author, who also published under the pseudonym Lee Correy, and Barbara
Stine was his wife. The Heinleins hosted the Stines’ wedding reception. Stine
lived in Colorado Springs, published some juvenile science fiction in the
1950s, testified before Congress on the need for future space programs, and
lectured on space warfare - all areas of commonality with Heinlein.
- Methuselah’s Children (1958): “To Edward E
Smith, Ph.D.” Edward E. “Doc” Smith (1890 – 1965) was an early science
fiction author and friend of Heinlein’s. Heinlein wrote “Larger Than Life:
A Memoir in Tribute to Dr. Edward E. Smith,” which appears in
- Starship Troopers (1959) “To `Sarge’ Arthur
George Smith - Soldier, Citizen, Scientist - and to all sergeants anywhere
who have labored to make men out of boys. R.A.H.” Arthur Smith was a close
personal friend of Heinlein’s.
- The Menace From Earth (1959) was “To Hermann
B Deutsch.” Deutsch was a columnist for the NOLA Times-Picayune. The Heinleins
stayed with him or his brother every time they were in New Orleans. His
brother, Eberhard, an attorney, is mentioned in Grumbles
From The Grave as insisting that that the Heinleins stay in his
penthouse in 1969 when they visited New Orleans.
- 6 X H/The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag
(1959): “To Eugene R Guild.” Captain Guild, possibly the founder of the
Fighting Homefolks of Fighting Men at Glenwood Springs, Colorado, was a
friend of the Heinleins. Captain Guild’s son was MIA in Korea.
- Stranger in a Strange Land (1961) “For Robert
Cornog, Frederic Brown, Philip Jose Farmer.” Robert Cornog (d. 1998) worked
with Luis Alvarez on Helium-3 and a cyclotron at Berkeley Labs in the 1930’s.
During World War II, Mr. Cornog worked on the Manhattan Project to develop
the atomic bomb and became chief engineer of the team's ordnance division.
He met Heinlein during the war and they were friends thereafter. Frederic
William Brown (1906 – 1972) wrote detective stories as well as science
fiction. Philip Jose Farmer (1918 – ) was perhaps the first author to treat
sex overtly in the SF genre. Since Heinlein had been waiting to be able to
publish material for real adults, he may have felt that Farmer had helped
pave the way for his being able to write a book like
- Podkayne of Mars (1963) was “For Gale and
Astrid.” “Gale” refers to Gale Ahroon, daughter of Admiral Andrew Ahroon who
was with NORAD when the book was written. He was in the class before
Heinlein’s in the U.S. Naval Academy. Mrs. Heinlein shared this anecdote on
one of the Heinlein AIM chats:
- “I remember Andy Ahroon telling us once that he had
been dressed down by a senior admiral, and he turned to leave, and the
senior said, `Just a minute, young man!’ So Andy came to attention again.
Andy was a Rear Admiral at the time.”
- “Astrid” refers to Poul Anderson’s daughter, now Astrid
Anderson Bear, married to Greg Bear, the science fiction Writer.
- Glory Road (1963) “For George H Scithers and
the regular patrons of the Terminus, Owlswick, and Ft Mudge Electric Street
Railway.” George Scithers (1929 – ) is an active science fiction fan, convention
organizer, and writer; an electrical engineer; an Army officer. He was the
founding editor of Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction
Magazine, for which he won the Hugo twice, in 1979 and 1981. He was
the Millennium Philcon's Fan Guest of Honor. He explained the rest of the
dedication in private email:
- “Owlswick is, in E. R. Eddison's
The Worm Ouroboros, the place from which the
troops did not come. In Buckinghamshire, it is a collection of about a
half-dozen houses, including a very [small] chapel with no regularly
assigned vicar and a public house, `The Leg of Mutton’. It is between
Clanking and Longwick, and is about a mile or so north-west of Riseboro,
which is just beyond the eastern edge of the London commuter-shed. The
name goes back to 1000 or so, and was originally something [like] `Eulf's
Wick,’ which through centuries of misspellings got close enough to the
more familiar `Owls’ to flip over the form we know now.
- “Ft Mudge is the last name still extant of the circle
of forts that were built round the Okefenokee Swamp in southern Georgia.
The nearest real town is Waycross [Georgia]. A few years back, there was a
general store (a small, side-of-the-road mom-&-pop store that sold groceries
and other odds and ends), but the road was widened and the store had the
misfortune to be on the side it was widened toward. There is now a few
trailer houses off in the woods, a sign on the highway pointing to the
side road where the trailer homes are, and a grove of pine trees being
tapped for their resin. Many years ago, it was a flag stop on the Atlantic
Coast Railroad, but not now.
- “There were a few Termini in the United States and
Canada: Atlanta, Georgia as once called Terminus, as was the (temporary)
end of track of the Los Angeles & Salt Lake Railroad in Utah. There was a
Terminus in southern Ontario, but I don't think the name is current now.
And in California, there is still a Terminous, which was at the end of a
branch of the Western Pacific Railroad (someone didn't know how to spell),
and a correctly spelled Terminus at the end of one of the branches of the
Visalia Electric Railroad. That terminus included a citrus fruit packing
plant and a beach on Terminus Lake, but no residents. I collected the
names for a house name when I published the fan magazine
Amra, which 'zine was about
Conan the Cimmerian. I included Mr. Heinlein
as a subscriber, though he never wrote anything for the magazine. I did,
one time, send him a postcard in which I asked, `What happens
after the Hero wins the hand of the princess
and half the kingdom.’ The book, Glory Road,
is the answer.”
- Farnham’s Freehold (1964): “To Alan Nourse.”
Dr. Alan Nourse (1928 – 1992) was a Medical Doctor and a science fiction
writer who is listed as a source of help for Heinlein’s article “Are You A
Rare Blood?” in the 1976 Compton Yearbook.
Heinlein described him in notes on the preparation of that article as a
“transdiciplinarian in bio and physical sciences.”
- The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress (1966) was “For
Pete and Jane Sencenbaugh.” Pete Sencenbaugh was an engineer and a friend
in Colorado Springs. He and his wife Jane gave the Heinleins dinner on their
last night in Colorado Springs. Their son, Joe, interviewed Heinlein for
Colorado Engineering magazine.
- The Past Through Tomorrow (1967) was
dedicated “For Ginny,” to Heinlein’s wife Virginia.
- I Will Fear No Evil (1970): “To Rex and
Kathleen” refers to Heinlein’s older brother Rex and his wife Kathleen.
- Time Enough for Love (1973) “For Bill and
Lucy.” Bill Corson was a personal friend of the Heinleins. Lucy Corson was
Bill’s wartime bride whom he met in New York.
- The Number of the Beast (1980) “To Marion
and Walter Minton.” Walter Minton was president of G. P. Putnam’s Sons,
which published many of Heinlein’s novels, and a personal friend. Marion
Minton was Walter’s wife.
- Expanded Universe (1980) was “To William
Targ.” William Targ was an editor at G. P. Putnam’s Sons.
- Friday (1982) “This book is dedicated to Ann,
Anne, Barbie, Betsy, Bubbles, Carolyn, Catherine, Dian, Diane, Eleanor,
Elinor, Gay, Jeanne, Joan, Judy-Lynn, Karen, Kathleen, Marilyn, Nichelle,
Patricia, Pepper, Polly, Roberta, Tamea, Rebel, Ursula, Verna, Vivian, Vonda,
Yumiko, and always – semper toujours! – to Ginny. R.A.H.” This
frighteningly-long list of first names could not have been deciphered
without the help of Mrs. Heinlein, who recalled nearly all of them
immediately. Surprisingly, though, we were not the first to go this way -
see the article, “Friday’s Dedications” [Heinlein
Journal, No. 10, January 2002 - the same issue as that in which
this article first appeared]. Here is the decoding of these names:

passengers on the ‘Gulf Shipper’ at the start of the trip, and the Heinleins
stayed with them in Hawaii when they returned to the U.S.
- Vonda = Vonda McIntyre (1948 – ), science fiction
author. Listed as a source of help in Heinlein’s article, “Are You A Rare
Blood?”, and described as a biologist in his notes on that article.
- Yumiko = President of Japanese fan club for Heinlein.
She is the daughter of Tetsu Yano, Heinlein’s Japanese translator and a
science fiction writer, who gave a short, but moving, speech at the awarding
of the NASA Medal for Distinguished Public Service to Heinlein [Kondo, 309].
- Ginny = Virginia Heinlein
- Job: A Comedy of Justice (1984) “For Clifford
D Simak” (1904 – 1988), the science fiction author, whose work focused on
human philosophy, the countryside, and people rather than simply on
- The Cat Who Walked Through Walls (1985) “To
Jerry and Larry and Harry, Dean and Dan and Jim, Poul and Buz and Sarge
(Men to have at your back). R.A.H.”
- “Jerry” is Jerry Pournelle (1933 – ); His wife
Roberta was a dedicatee of Friday.
- “Larry” is Larry Niven (1938 – ).
- “Harry” is G. Harry Stine (1928 – 1997); See the
Have Space Suit - Will Travel dedication.
- (All are science fiction authors.)
- “Dean” is Dean Ing, Ph.D., a professor of

- “Buz” is Francis Marion Busby (1921 – ), science
fiction author and fan (his wife Elinor was a dedicatee of
- Finally, “Sarge” is Barry Workman, a friend of Jerry
- Jim Baen mentioned in private email that he personally
was very touched when he received his inscribed copy of the book, and he
knew that all the other dedicatees were as well. He also noted that all of
these people participated in the Citizen’s Advisory Council on National
Space Policy, formed by Jerry Pournelle in 1980, which prepared much of
the Reagan Administration Transition Team policy papers on space. Heinlein
attended several of these meetings.
- To Sail Beyond the Sunset (1987) “To little
girls and butterflies and kittens. To Susan and Eleanor and Chris and (always)
to Ginny. With my love, R. A. H.” Eleanor Wood was Heinlein’s agent and
was a dedicatee in Friday. Susan Allison
was at that time Editor-in-Chief of Ace Books, and she became a Vice
President in 1985. Chris Schilling was an editor who worked on the book
- Grumbles from the Grave (1989) “For
Heinlein’s Children.” That’s us, of course!
In dedicating these books to friends, colleagues and relatives, Heinlein
was perhaps acknowledging a debt. If these people helped in any way to make
Heinlein the person he was and if the books are the product of that
personality then we owe them too.
It’s good to finally know who they are.
