Crawford, Theron Clark

Tagged: Author

(1849-1925) US entrepreneur (involved with various Buffalo Bill enterprises), journalist and (apparently) Theosophist (see Theosophy), active circa 1885-1925; from about 1898 he was based mainly in London. The protagonist of A Man and his Soul: An Occult Romance of Washington Life (1894) finds himself semi-occultly able to glimpse the future of America, a quasi-Utopia dominated by advances in technology. The title story assembled in The Disappearance Syndicate; And, Senator Stanley's Story (coll 1894) repeats the same intersection of the occult and super-science, as its protagonist finds himself increasingly embroiled in a group of Secret Masters who rule the world; the third tale, "Napoleon Wolff and His Newspaper of the Future", features an Antigravity machine.
