(1812-1893) US author of A Sojourn in the City of Amalgamation in the Year of Our Lord 19— (1835), a self-published Dystopia set in a Near Future City in Upstate New York where miscegenation is legally enforced, over against every decent instinct of whites, who (Holgate's anti-Abolitionist venom must have seemed grotesque even in 1835) faint at the smell of Blacks. Noachidæ: Or, Noah and His Descendants (1860) is a very much less offensive Lost Race tale set in Antediluvian times. [JC]
