Harry Clement Stubbs (May 30, 1922 - October 29, 2003) better known by the pen name Hal Clement, was an American science fiction writer and a leader of the hard science fiction subgenre. Stubbs was born in Somerville, Massachusetts and died in Milton, Massachusetts. He went to Harvard, graduating with a B.S. in astronomy in 1943. While there he published his first story, "Proof," in the June 1942 issue of Astounding Science Fiction. His further educational background includes an M.Ed. (Boston University 1946) and M.S. in chemistry (Simmons College 1963). During World War II Clement was a pilot and copilot of a B-24 Liberator and flew 35 combat missions over Europe with the 8th Air Force. After the war, he served in the United States Air Force Reserve, and retired with the rank of colonel. He taught chemistry and astronomy for many years at Milton Academy in Milton, Massachusetts. Clement received the 1998 recognition as a Grand Master by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA).
