Breckenridge, Gerald

Tagged: Author

(1889-1964) US journalist and author (who may have been born Gerald Breitigam) of one of the more successful Radio Boys sequences, the Radio Boys novels beginning with The Radio Boys on Secret Service Duty (1922). The titles of greatest sf interest are The Radio Boys Search for the Inca's Treasure (1922), a Lost Race tale, and The Radio Boys Seek the Lost Atlantis (1923), another Lost Race tale which locates the Atlantean city of Athenai (see Atlantis) in the Atlas Mountains. The go-getting Yankee Radio Boys soon put paid to an ancient oligarchy. The great Library of Atlantis, housed here, is (unusually) saved for the world. [JC]
