From Kook Science

Daniel Whitfield Prows (February 4, 1821 - April 25, 1898) was an American farmer in Dry Creek Valley near Healdsburg in Sonoma County, California who was taken into state custody at the Ukiah Insane Asylum during 1896, attributed in press reporting to be partly due to claims he had invented a perpetual motion machine, and more generally that he was "the conqueror of the sun."
