Biographical Outline

David Silver, President of the Heinlein Society

David Silver

Mr. Silver, retired, was Secretary-Treasurer of The Heinlein Society from 2000-2003, before being elected President in September of 2003. He is married, has an adult daughter, and lives in Southern California. His pre-law studies for an undergraduate English degree at UCLA, and law degree at Loyola, were acquired thanks to the Vietnam GI Bill. An avid Heinlein reader since age eleven in 1954, he founded the Internet Heinlein Reading Group in 1997. Two years later, Virginia Heinlein anonymously attended a meeting of the group, liked what she saw, disclosed her identity, and continued attending meetings. In November 2000, Mrs. Heinlein invited Mr. Silver to join the board of directors of The Heinlein Society and, a month later, asked him to undertake the office of Secretary-Treasurer.
