Elvard Luther Moses (January 22, 1862 - June 1950) was an American businessman associated with a variety of concerns, most notoriously the Oxypathor Co., manufacturer of a therapeutic gas-pipe, where his activities resulted in his prosecution and imprisonment for 18 months from 1915 through 1916 on a mail fraud conviction. Following his release from prison, Moses returned to Buffalo, where he was a partner in the Condor Aero Company, a planned flying machine manufacturer, and the Blanche Bay Syndicate, a gold mining concern with claims in Ontario, Canada.
