Checking the copyright costs money. If anyone wants to donate then contact Greg Weeks. He has already freed H. Beam Piper for us.
Good luck, but I'm not too optimistic. I remember that shortly after his death, his short stories were collected in a block of hard cover books (5-7 volumes, if my memory serves me) with cut out signatures from his cancelled checks. What text they used I don't know, but that probably reset a lot of copyrights (to life + 95). If they didn't use the magazine text versions, those might be expired. RSE
