Ray Bradbury

A publicity photo of science fiction author Ray Bradbury in 1959, when he was employed as a writer on the TV show Alfred Hitchcock Presents. His famous book Fahrenheit 451 had been published six years earlier, in 1953.  Bradbury was born in 1920, so he was about 39 years old when this shot was taken.
