Clarke, Francis H

Tagged: Author

(?   -?   ) US author whose Morgan Rockefeller's Will: A Romance of 1991-2 (1909) suggests that a member of the John D Rockefeller family might, in 1991, bequeath his Standard Oil fortune to the American government, to be held in trust for the people. His niece, with the aid of a society called Reapers of the World, takes control of these funds and establishes a benevolent socialist Utopia. The interplay between prophecy and history is of some interest. There is apparently no connection between this author and Frances H Clarke. [JC]
