(1861-1942) UK-born farmer, publisher, journalist and author, in New Zealand from 1886; intermittently active as a poet and journalist from around 1880, sometimes as by Samuel Cliall White and other names not identified. Of his four novels, the least popular was The Elixir of Life (1907), an sf story in which Immortality is sought, and perhaps achieved, through the Invention of a disease-averting serum. [JC]
