Will H.L. Ogrinc (died 2018) was a Professor in Ancient and Medieval History at Hogeschool Rotterdam & Omstreken in the Netherlands. He graduated in Medieval History at Utrecht State University, and published an enlarged version of his doctoral thesis about western alchemy in the Journal of Medieval History (1980).[1] He was a lecturer in History of the Teachers' Training Colleges at Utrecht, Delft and Rotterdam (1978-2015). From 1989-1997, he was a secretary to the Dr. Edward Brongersma Foundation, and, from 1990-1995, he was a member of the Editorial Board of Paidika: The Journal of Paedophilia and published many detailed studies of previously under-researched historical MAPs. Later, he graduated as a Humanities and Social Sciences Bibliographer (GO-C) at The Hague, qualifying him to undertake a monumental bibliography of male childhood and adolescence, published in 2017 as Boyhood and Adolescence, Ephebophilia, Hebephilia, and Paedophilia: A Selective Bibliography (1040 pages). This work is the first international comprehensive bibliography of boyhood and male adolescence, with special attention to ephebophilia, hebephilia and pedophilia.

He published a contribution to the famous scholarly compendium on "Intergenerational Intimacy" (1991), published as a special issue in the Journal of Homosexuality[2] (with guest editors Theo Sandfort, Edward Brongersma, and Alex Van Naerssen), titled "Boys in Art: The Artist and His Model".[3] The volume was simultaneously published as a book entitled Male intergenerational intimacy: Historical, socio-psychological, and legal perspectives.
