Almanac of Famous People has an entry for an American cartoonist 1910-1989 named Charles Clarence Beck. There has been quite a bit of overlap between the comics and SF shorts, so this might be the right person. Contento does not have an entry. The isfdb has an entry that lists this story and a Shazam archive from 2004.
- "Vanishing Point" ASF July 1959. PG clearance requested.
