Edmund Miles

From Kook Science

Edmund Miles was an inventor at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania who claimed in October 1919 to have devised a method of perpetual motion that utilised liquid air, relying on what he referred to as the "magnetic power of oxygen," his discovery constituting a "new law in chemistry." The claims seem to have received little attention outside of the local papers, and even that minor interest seems to have quickly faded.
