A friend asked me the following:

> Two questions about John R. Pierce (who was my ED when I came to
> the Labs):
> 1. I vividly recall an early story of his in which the
> protagonist discovers that he is an android. I was sure it was
> entitled "Android," and I thought it was in the first Conklin
> or Healy/McComas anthology, but I don't see any sign of it on
> the Web. Is it perhaps actually "To Be a Man," which Evelyn
> reviewed? [It didn't appear to be.]
> 2. The NY Times obit says he is survived by a son, John J.,
> of Bloomfield, N.J. Is this the John J. Pierce who is an
> author/editor/critic of sf? Do you have any of the books
> listed below, and if so is there an NJ location listed for
> Pierce?
