Who is Robert Becker? (1 Viewer)

He is mentioned as a close friend in 'Ham on Rye' and Bukowski called him a great writer that he would dedicate his first novel to.

If Becker is not a person then does he represent another alter ego of Bukowski? The optimistic side or the naive one?
I want to say that Becker's real name was Robert Baume and he died in WW2.

Can't remember where I read that info. Maybe someone can verify it.
Nobody from California with the last name of Baun or Baum(e) died in WW2.
