McLandburgh, Florence

(1850-1934) US author, who wrote poetry as by McLandburgh Wilson. In The Automaton Ear and Other Stories (coll 1876), the title story "The Automaton Ear" (May 1873 Scribner's Monthly) is of sf interest for its description of a device capable – since sound never in fact dies – of recovering all the sounds that ever existed; the sonic equivalent of a Time Viewer.
