Sandusky, Albert A. (d. 1934?). Amateur journalist and associate of HPL. Sandusky, a resident of Cambridge, Mass., operated the Lincoln Press, and in this capacity he printed the two issues of the Providence Amateur (June 1915 and February 1916) for HPL, as well as several issues of HPL’s Conservative (July 1915, October 1915, January 1916, April 1916, and possibly July 1916). HPL first met Sandusky on a visit to Boston on March 10–11, 1923, to attend a meeting of the Hub Club (an amateur group associated with the NAPA), of which Sandusky was a member. HPL was taken with Sandusky’s piquant use of contemporary slang, and his poem “The Feast (Hub Journalist Club, March 10, 1923),” published in the Hub Club Quill (May 1923), is dedicated to “Wisecrack Sandusky, B.I., M.B.O. (Bachelor of Intelligence, Massachusetts Brotherhood of Owls).” HPL met Sandusky again in Boston in August 1923, and Sandusky visited HPL in New York in June 1925. No correspondence by HPL to Sandusky has survived.
