(1872-1948) US naval officer and author, rising to the rank of Rear Admiral; he should not be confused with his father, Yates Stirling (1843-1929), also a Rear Admiral. He is of sf interest for various stories and essays about the role of the navy in any Future War, the first of these probably being "With the Coming of the Dawn" in The Bellman for 23 November 1907. His Yellow Peril tales, with Japan the preferred adversary, dominate the speculative-fiction portion of The Battle for the Pacific; And Other Adventures at Sea (anth 1908), whose anonymous editor has not been identified.
