Charles W. Lyon

Added the following note to Speaker Charles W. Lyon‘s biography:

“In 1938, Lyon (as a cross-filing candidate) defeated Robert A. Heinlein for the Democratic nomination for AD-59. As the only winning candidate in Primary, Lyon was unopposed in the General Election. Heinlein went on to become a prolific science fiction author, writing 32 novels, 59 short stories and 16 collections (including Starship Troopers in 1959).”

Thank you to Drew Mercy for pointing that one out.
