Morgan Andrew Robertson
Birth: Sep. 30, 1861
Oswego County
New York, USA
Death: Mar. 24, 1915
Atlantic City
Atlantic County
New Jersey, USA

Author, Inventor. He won fame for his novel "Futility: The Wreck of the Titan" (1898). In this fictional account of the destruction of a British passenger ship, Robertson predicted, with often uncanny detail, the sinking of the Titanic in 1912. He capitalized on the disaster by reissuing the book with updated material. In "The Submarine Destroyer" (1905), Robertson described an undersea vessel that could spot floating targets with a new visual device, which he called a "periscope". The Holland Submarine Company approached the author and asked if the idea was feasible; he showed them a model which he claimed he had already patented. They purchased it from him for $50,000. Robertson wrote 12 other novels and over 200 short stories. (bio by: NWO)
