Lynch, George (L)
George Lynch (1868-1928) was listed by Sprague deCamp[0194.329] as a supporter of a Brazilian Atlantis in 1925. Until recently that was all that I could find about him. However, I now discover that Stelios Pavlou has unearthed(a) much more information. Lynch was an Irish war correspondent, reporting on conflicts such as the Spanish-American War, the Boer War and the Chinese Boxer Rebellion. Towards the end of his life he was a fund-raiser for Percy Fawcett’s expedition to find the lost city of Z in Brazil, which apparently they both believed to have a possible connection with Atlantis.
