Cushing, Volney Byron

Volney Byron Cushing (1856-1916) was an American lecturer who had two interests, decrying the Volney_B__Cushingevils of alcohol and promoting the reality of Atlantis. With regard to temperance, Cushing was an active member of the Prohibition Party which has existed since 1869. In connection with the latter, he frequently delivered a lecture entitled The Lost Atlantis, the text of which seems to be lost. He apparently echoed many of Donnelly’s ideas, as well as the possibility of an Atlantic landbridge.
