(1861-1948) US minister and author whose To the Poles by Airship; Or, Around the World Endways (1909) confusedly but intriguingly surrounds the narrative of a round-the-world trip, in an Airship powered by liquid air (see Power Sources), with a series of speculations and visions: a Lost Race inhabiting Atlantis is glimpsed; a Future War is described, along with a Utopia complete with advanced Technology. Dalleszona and the Seventh Treasure (1922) is a Lost Race tale, featuring descendants of the Toltec Nation whose example inspires world peace after World War One. [JC]
