Indexer Notes

Writer credit from "The Secret History of Wonder Woman" (Jill Lapore, 2014), previously given as William Moulton Marston.

Joye Hummel is the maiden name for the scripter (before 1947), then she married David Murchison. When he passed away, Joye married Jack Kelly. So her name, all combined, reads Joye Hummel Murchison Kelly, the way Jill Lapore refers to her in her book above.
