I'm not an expert, but Google Books's Search of Scans of the Catalog of Copyright Entries offers full-text search, and links to individual volumes, of 91 volumes of copyright registrations from 1922 to 1977.

Back then, you needed to renew the copyright within 28 years or lose it.

I did a search on "Odd John Stapledon" and the original 1936 registration appears, as does what appears to be a renewal by Agnes Zena Stapledon in 28APR64 - which is 28 years after the initial registration in 1936. Then it looks like "Odd John (In the portable novels of science) was registered in 28SEP72.

I believe at that point, the Bono Act comes into effect.

Looks like it's not PD, but someone else might know better.

Nope, not PD in the US for another 20 years. Australia copyrights tend to expire much sooner...US copyriggt takes 3 lifetimes thanks to Disney...
