Thomas Wm. Hamilton (born 1939).
Hamilton was a child actor, starting as Barnaby, the little boy with a fairy godfather in a stage play based on the comic strip. After college (Columbia) he worked as an astronomer on the Apollo Project. Later he worked for a planetarium manufacturer, writing canned shows provided to those buying the planetariums. He then taught at Wagner College, running the school's planetarium and training students into the planetarium field. He is the author of two books in the computer field, a couple dozen short stories that are available on line at Changing the Times, and the novel Time for Patriots, which costs $20, not the $25 listed, and I heard it's also on Kindle. He is also the author of two books in astronomy: Useful Star Names (2011, Strategic Book Publishing) and Our Neighbor Stars (2012, same publisher). He was my professor at Wagner College, and his ex-wife Elissa L. A. Hamilton (who is listed as a pseudonym) was in the class ahead of me. Signed: Sharon G. Rosen
