(1880-1960) UK author with Claude Grahame-White of two sf juveniles: The Air-King's Treasure (1913) and The Invisible War-Plane: A Tale of Air Adventure in the Great Campaign (1915). In the latter an Airship is concealed by paint which (it is claimed) neither absorbs nor reflects light. Much later Harper wrote two solo works of semifictional Futures Studies, Winged World: The Coming of the Air Age (1946), where something like a planetary Pax Aeronautica is anticipated, and Dawn of the Space Age (1946).
