(1851-1925) US church minister and author of Philoland (1900), a Utopia set in a Hollow Earth venue, where a Lost Race of ancient Hebrews has established a populous civilization. It is a relatively sophisticated benign vision of a highly technologized Underground society; such visions are exceedingly rare after World War One. [JC]
