Eggleston, Katharine

Tagged: Author

(1874-?   ) US author who according to early records was born Katie M Junkermann (forename also given as Katherine or Katharine, surname sometimes as Junkerman or Jenkerman); married to fringe-science writer Fenwicke L Holmes in 1919. Her Lost World novel is Red O'Rourke's Riches (2 March-20 April 1912 The Cavalier Weekly as by Katherine Eggleston and F H Richardson; 1937), in which an Egyptian colony is discovered in the mountains of Arizona. There are imprecise references to the prolific Eggleston as a writer for the early cinema; this association is strengthened by the fact that her listed collaborator for the magazine version of this story was Frank Herbert Richardson (1867-1943), active as the author of books on motion picture projection from before World War One, and a contributor to Cavalier in his own right.
