Holton, Captain. Captain Holton was created by Arthur Thatcher and appeared in “The Valley of Teeheemen” (Weird Tales, Dec. 1924-Jan. 1925) and “The Last of the Teeheemen” (Weird Tales, Mar.-Apr. 1925).

Captain Holton is a ranking member of the American air service. He is ordered to take the daughter of Admiral Hart to visit her father. Hart is the commander of the Atlantic Fleet, which is on maneuvers in Cuban waters. Hart’s daughter, heavyweight boxer Herman van Otter, and scientist Bruce Benton accompany Holton in a new super-plane. But a storm blows them astray and they discover, somewhere in South America, the Valley of Teeheemen, in which lives a kind of Lost Race.
