Short story or novelette. c1944.
A military bodyguard of the man who is responsible for Europe not sliding into a Dark Age after the war (foresight of George Marshall?) goes with him to a meeting with what turns out to be the greatest people in history...Akhenaton, some great leader of Atlantis, the first interstellar explorer, and such. A man in a hood has never spoken at any of these meetings. At this one, though, he reveals that he is the Last Man, and that all their strivings will devolve to him.
