(1826-1890) US playwright, publisher and author of The Story of Happinolande and Other Legends (coll 1889), the title story describing an egalitarian but exceedingly well-financed Utopia; something like universal income is provided to all residents. Another story here assembled, "The City Beautiful", contrasts the filth of New York – where Bunce was born and died – with a utopian city described in terms consistent with the garden suburb. [JC]
