(1817-1906) US inventor and author of A.D.: Electrical Development at Atlantis (1890) as by A Former Resident of "The Hub", one of many "answers" to Edward Bellamy's Looking Backward: 2000-1887 (1888). In this case an electricity-driven right-wing Utopia, governed by businessmen with powerful new Weapons, fights off the socialists, and an Invasion from China (see Yellow Peril), fifty years after Bellamy thought all was well.
