I swear I had once read a short story in which the protagonist, perhaps a time traveler, at some point found himself on a park bench next to Hugo Gernsback, and inspired Gersback to start his magazine and name it Amazing Stories. Being still rather poorly read in the genre (or rather narrowly read, as I've read a great deal, but by only a few authors), I can't for the life of me place this story, whether in terms of its original era, its author, or its location when I read it. It may or may not help that I suspect it to have been a Heinlein story.
eta: there might also have been mention of Gernsback's idea to call the genre "scientifiction"
