Mythos[]

Professor Albert Wilmarth first appeared in the story The Whisperer in Darkness (H.P. Lovecraft, 1930).

Professor Albert Wilmarth is a noted folklorist and assistant professor of English at Miskatonic University. He became involved in the debate over the inhuman bodies seen after the Vermont floods of 1927. Wilmarth strongly asserted that the creatures sighted in the waters did not exist. After a spirited defense of his viewpoints, however, he inexplicably dropped out of the debate. Later, he visited a correspondent in Vermont, but upon arriving found his friend to be missing. The subsequent investigation turned up little evidence, and Wilmarth returned to Arkham baffled.

Following these events, Wilmarth confided in his colleagues Henry Armitage and Nathaniel Peaslee about his discoveries. These men began a campaign to discover the sources behind the legends that were the groundwork of their own experiences. Wilmarth made many long trips in order to visit sites and talk to his network of informants.[1]
