H. T. Crepeau

From Kook Science

Henry Theodore Crepeau was a New Brunswick-born American inventor who, in 1891, was reported to have developed and sought patent for a method of perpetual motion. As with many stories of the type, there seems to have been no follow-up on the extraordinary claims, and Crepeau, for his part, sought success with different patents, including a traveling lawn-sprinkler (US485532A), an egg-beater (US632780A), and an automatic vending-machine (US417354A).
