(1851-1927) US teacher and author of a series of Utopian novels, some barely fictionalized. A Cityless and Countryless World (1893) fairly vividly presents a highly organized Mars of Feminist interest, women there being financially and sexually independent of men. His remaining books – even The Story of the World a Thousand Years Hence (1923) – fatally eschew narrative; the extent to which various titles are in effect revisions of one another has not been examined.
