Homer Duran Brown (July 3, 1879 - October 10, 1953) was an American carpenter and religious minister, founder of the Oregon-based Brotherhood of the Divine Revelations and the associated Brown-Estro Power and Manufacturing Co., a corporation that he sold stock in to finance the production of "Brown's Wheel," or, as Brown himself called it, "the Power of God," a perpetual motion device that he claimed was "revealed to him by the Scripture" and said to "operate on the principle of gravity overcoming gravity," the machine itself described as being "a series of wheels and weights." Brown's financing activities drew attention from state regulators in 1927, and resulted in his indictment for the illegal sale of stock under Oregon's "blue sky" laws.
