David Silver, President of the
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.
