(1859-1946) US author of Yermah the Dorado (1897 as by Frona Eunice Wait; rev vt Yermah the Dorado: The Story of a Lost Race 1913 under her full name), which is set in the ninth millennium BCE, at a time when the Aryan empire of Atlantis governs a Utopia on the site of what will eventually become San Francisco; it is not technically a Lost Race tale. The congested plot, much concerned with Religions of every stripe, ends in a volcanic eruption. [JC]
