Marvin Grossworth was a chairman of American Mensa in the mid-1970s.
Marvin was a prolific author. A stout fellow, he took special pride in being fat. See references to his works in Google.
Sander Rubin Comments on Marvin: "He was good natured and generous. As a skilled writer, he served as Mensa's Public Relations Officer (PRO) in my administration. Mensa needed his talents to expand its membership to obtain economies of scale and enrich its diversity. I persuaded him to run for AMC chairman during a trip to London when I described the pleasures of the office.
"Marvin did not have a taste, however, for the political games a few members were playing and felt uncomfortable in office. He declined to run for a second term and returned to the position of PRO until he died. In a self-consoling mood, he commented to Margot Seitelman, 'It's only a club.' Margot took that phrase and changed the context from a personal observation to a definition of Mensa in chats with many members. In effect, she diminished the constitutional scope of Mensa. The eventual consequences is a tale for a later time."
