Carl Grossman
Born c. 1875 [1][2]

Carl Grossman (also referred to as Karl Grossman, Charles Grossman) was an Austro-Hungarian banker and consular agent residing at Proctor, Vermont, who, in the summer of 1910, declared to the press that he had solved the problem of perpetual motion through use of a water valve, developing what he called an aqua-automotor. Some months later, in December 1910, Grossman was reported as having disappeared along with thousands of dollars of the savings of several Austro-Hungarian immigrants from the area, and seems to have never been found again.
