Pseudonym of US author Wayland Spaulding (1850-1918), apparently most active in Poughkeepsie, New York; his Near Future Satire, When Theodore is King [for subtitle see Checklist below] (1907 chap), lampoons the political ascendancy of President Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) after working-class unrest beginning in 1907 and climaxing two years later with his ascension to the newly-created throne, with Canada begging to unite with the new monarchy. The book, which is dated 1909, is told in retrospect. [JC]
