Born John Stewart Williamson, the professor for english, was a driving force in the development of teaching Science Fiction. He also coined the term "terraforming", according to wikipedia.

Having co-written a number of novels with Frederik Pohl, he also seems to be an early spearhead of a form of literary "co-creation".
