Henry Hoverman

From Kook Science

Henry Hoverman (December 20, 1860 - March 9, 1943) was an American machinist who was reported in October 1898 to have been incarcerated at Columbus State Hospital following an apparent breakdown during which he asserted he was both God and a machine himself. The press attributed his mental state to a decade-long interest in perpetual motion. Hoverman would remain in the care of the state of Ohio from that time until his death.
