RARA-AVIS: William Irish question

From: Ed Lynskey ( e_lynskey@yahoo.com)

I've been reading the Tom Nolan biography of Ross Macdonald and ran across a reference to William Irish, who like RM, published in the early MANHUNT issues. In the archives, I see that William Irish was a Cornell Woolrich pseudonym. I wondered why.
 Did established crime/mystery fiction writers use assumed names to publish under in pulps, like MANHUNT?
