(1870-1959) US businessman and author whose The Pallid Giant: A Tale of Yesterday and Tomorrow (1927; vt Gentlemen: You Are Mad! 1946) places in an ominous Near-Future context the discovery of records of a long-dead ancient race, which destroyed itself with Death Rays. The last survivors, one of them fortunately a scientist, undertake by Genetic Engineering to set the ape on an upward course (see Apes as Human; Evolution); we are their direct descendants. But now, in Near Future Europe, death rays have again been invented. The narrator plans to warn the world. [JC]
