Elgee, Capt. C.H. (t)

Capt. Cyril Hammond Elgee, formerly Elgie (1871-1917) was the British Resident (local administrator) in Ibadan, Nigeria from 1902 until 1913. In 1914 he wrote a paper entitled The Evolution of Ibadan(a).

His suggestion (1908) that Nigeria had been the location of Atlantis predated, by a number of years, the publication of a similar theory by Leo Frobenius.
