Pseudonym of UK civil servant and author Charles William Fielding (1863-1941), whose How England Was Saved: History of the Years 1910-1925 (1908) is a lightly fictionalized Future History of Britain, in which agribusinesses replace traditional farmers (a process described in great detail, as might be expected from the pseudonym chosen), and Parliament is not allowed to sit more than four days a week. For his work as Director-General of Food Production in World War One, Fielding was knighted in 1917. [JC]
