(1876-1964) US industrialist, amateur palaeontologist and author of several Prehistoric SF tales for juvenile readers (see Children's SF), beginning with the two Pic the Weapon-Maker tales, Pic the Weapon-Maker (1920) and Kutnar, Son of Pic (1921), set 25,000 years ago and featuring what may be Telepathic rapport with mammoths; Senrac, the Lion Man: Adventures of a Boy in the Stone Age (1954) touches fairly closely upon some Tarzan tropes in its depiction of the raising of a feral human boy and a lion cub together on a floating Island.
