During the late 1940s, Mr. Himmel lived in a Pasadena mansion with a number of science fiction enthusiasts, including a struggling writer who later founded the Church of Scientology -- L. Ron Hubbard.

"He was a guy on the make," Mr. Himmel said. "I couldn't stand him."

Friends also included a struggling mystery writer named Raymond Chandler. ("Chandler didn't say much. He was kind of morose.")
