This copy Inscribed by Oboler to Rex Stout: "With best wishes to Rex Stout, fighter for freedom. Arch Oboler." Oboler was one of the great innovators of the golden age of radio drama, specializing in horror and suspense plays, perhaps best known for the popular series Lights Out and Arch Oboler's Plays.
