Edmund Carpenter 1922-2011

Anthropologist who worked with Marshall McLuhan and wrote two excellent books: Oh, What a Blow That Phantom Gave Me! and They Became What They Beheld.

ETA: I first heard of Carpenter when The Realist created an offensive poster (Kurt Vonnegut explains) and he put it up in his office and started a fuss, which he wrote to The Realist about. I decided I would like any book he wrote, and sure enough, I did.
