LOUIS TRIMBLE

1917 - 1988

Writing as: Stuart Brock, Gerry Travis, Louis Trimble


According to the bio on Wikipedia: "Louis Trimble was an American writer and academic. His published work included science fiction, westerns, and mysteries, as well as academic non-fiction. He generally wrote as Louis Trimble, but used the pseudonym "Stuart Brock" for some of his work.

Born in Seattle, Washington, he published his first story in 1938, but did not move into the science-fiction genre until the mid-1950s. He attended a number of universities in Washington state and Pennsylvania. After working as a logger and a housepainter, he became an instructor and professor in humanities and social studies at the University of Washington from 1956 onward.

Trimble's work in applied linguistics examined the use of English in science and technology contexts. As a member of the Washington School he advanced the "grammatical-rhetorical" position in English for Science and Technology research, which argued that linguistic analysis of scientific discourse should consider the ways in which various rhetorical functions manifested grammatically in texts at the discourse level."
