Just wanted to point you in the direction of this blog post by Rob MacDougall (Old is the New New).   Norris, Lovecraft, Ghostbusters, the Book of Enoch, Octopuses and Bldgblog.

“But The Octopus, and the whole Gilded Age octopus thing, predate Lovecraft by a few decades. Maybe the influence went the other way. Could Lovecraft’s octopoid monstrosities be creatures straight out of Norris? Was Yog-Sothoth a corporation? Was Cthulhu a railroad?”
