The 1951 ECOS Article



Yet, it now appears that as early as 1951, a decade before the advent of Communist
rule on the island, Cuban archaeologists were working on the theory that the petro-
glyphs in Punta del Este's Ceuva # Uno's reflected some kind of cosmic catastrophe
which devastated Atlantis.

A two-page article appeared in the February 1952 edition of the magazine ECOS en-
titled 'Formó Cuba Parte de la Atlándida?'. Written by Francisco Garcia-Juarez, the
press secretary of the Instituto Cubano de Arqueologia (Institute of Cuban Archaeo-
logy, or ICA) it posed the question:

did Cuba once form part of Atlantis?

He explained how members of the Institute were investigating the idea that traces
of an Atlantean culture might be found in Cuba and Hispaniola, a view offered to
them by Egerton Sykes, then a world renowned authority on Atlantis. In 1949 he had
written an introduction for a revised edition of ATLANTIS: THE ANTEDILUVIAN WORLD,
the all-time classic on the subject, written by former US congressman Ignatius Donnelly
and published for the first time in 1882 (and still available as a re-print by Dover Publica-
tions).

Sykes was also the editor of a journal propounding Hans Hoerbinger's Cosmic Ice theory
entitled, simply, ATLANTIS, in which appeared a partial translation of the above-men-
tioned ECOS article.
