In December 1943*, Street & Smith editor and promotions manager William John de Grouchy (1889- Nov. 29, 1954) was named the Editor for Doc Savage magazine. However, Will Murray has written that Babette Rosmond actually did the work though she assigned the Doc Savage novels to her unnamed assistant.

de Grouchy had previously edited the Shadow magazine and ran a company, Penn Art, that eventually supplied the art for the comic and other publications.
