(1865-1917) Canadian entrepreneur, almost certainly in Hawaii in 1897 where a Thomas Milner Harrison was involved in a firm engaged in selling the Hagey Gold Cure in Hawaii and the South Pacific, an enterprise which dissolved in litigation in 1902. As an author, he published one Lost World tale, Modern Arms and a Feudal Throne: The Romantic Story of an Unexplored Sea (1904), which moves from Hawaii to the South Pacific, where a great storm plummets the adventurous protagonists into an aquatic Hollow Earth, possibly on Symmesian lines, the shores of which are occupied by lost Spanish and English outposts. Romance and a volcano ensue. [JC]
