HOUSE, Colonel Edward Mandell


HOUSE, Colonel Edward Mandell
(1858-1938)
   US political figure - in his refusal of official duties rather like an earlier Bernard Baruch (1870-1965)-involved with President Woodrow Wilson in setting up the League of Nations. Philip Dru,Administrator: A Story of Tomorrow, 1920-1935 (1912) is a surprisingly wide-ranging exercise in political sf. After a cartel of corrupt business tycoons attempts to suborn the US Government, Dru instigates a new Civil War, wins, and in place of the old US Government establishes a radicalUTOPIA that features universal suffrage and other "socialist" innovations. He then saves the rest of the world.
