Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.
(? -? ) UK journalist, advertising copywriter for Crawford's Advertising Agency (1920s-1940s) and author, in whose Near Future Scientific Romance, Interruption (1932), an idealist and Scientist conspire to hoax Britain into abandoning irreligion. The fiery cross they cause to manifest over Piccadilly Circus in London engenders the hoped-for transformation (see Advertising), and a new government is formed on Religious lines. But the hoax is exposed, and secularism – dramatized by a vision of Black musicians playing jazz – again rules. [JC]
