Pseudonym of Frederic Dannay and Manfred Bennington Lee (Their original names were Daniel Nathan and Manford Lepofski but they changed them as young men). They were cousins and were educated together at Brooklyn Boys High School. In 1929 they created 'Ellery Queen', a writer of crime stories featuring a detective with the name 'Ellery Queen' (quite confusing). They also wrote under the pseudonym 'Barnaby Ross'. Visit also this site which is dedicated to Ellery Queen.
