(1876-1966) US author, actively prolific as a short story writer for many years; of her novels, The Bear's Claws (1913) with John Northern Hilliard is of sf interest as a Lost World tale set in Persia, where an ancient City is discovered; the otherness of this city is muted by its discoverers' calling it Persepolis, a genuine ancient city whose location has been known for thousands of years.
