(1864-1948) US lawyer and author of two sf books, Atlanteans; Adam Lore's Choice: Stories for Young Men (coll 1889) and The Last War; Or, The Triumph of the English Tongue [for full title see Checklist] (1898). In the latter, a Future-War story set in the twenty-sixth century, the highly civilized all-White Allied Anglo-American Nations decide, more in sorrow, to engage in "war to the end" against a miscegenate evil empire controlled by the Russian Czar, destroying millions of the foe before their inevitable victory, which allows them (see Imperialism) to occupy new territory. The Princess Athura: A Romance of Iran (1913) is an historical fantasy. [JC]
