Additional Who's Who entry for Harvey byline pen name Major Ralston (Bails' misidentifies as Major Blakely, confusing byline with the Spirit of '76 character's alter ego):
http://bailsprojects.com/bio.aspx?Name=BLAKELY%2C+MAJOR and
http://www.bailsprojects.com/bio.aspx?Name=RALSTON%2c+MAJOR
(As a byline, other creators probably worked under the name as well.)

Additional Who's Who entry for Brookwood byline pen name Gregory Torey:
http://www.bailsprojects.com/bio.aspx?Name=TOREY%2c+GREGORY
(As a byline, other creators probably worked under the name as well.)

Additional Who's Who entry for Quality byline pen name Terrence Macauley:

(As a byline, other creators probably worked under the name as well.)

The Henry Ralston pen name is speculative per Bails' Who's Who.
