1940s story: "The Red Death of Mars" by Robert Moore Williams
Thanks to a generous fan of Golden Age science fiction anthologies at the Internet Archive, you can read or download “The Red Death of Mars” (1940), a novelette written by Robert Moore Williams, as it was reprinted in the anthology Men Against the Stars (Gnome Press, 1950), edited by Martin Greenberg.
"With better space ships, exploration of other worlds brings
more unpredictable hazards of mystery and death."
