(?   -?   ) US author of a short fiction, "A Feminine Iconoclast" (November 1889 Nationalist), is an early response to Edward Bellamy's Looking Backward (1888), published in a journal that represented his views, but taking issue with his Utopia on Feminist grounds; it gained some attention for its measured forthrightness, and for its telling sarcasm: men, it is suggested, should be chained to ornate chairs and made to eat sweets until they go mad.
