Hugh Auchincloss Brown (December 23, 1878 - November 9, 1975) was an American electrical engineer and proponent of a hypothesis of planetary axial shift caused by the accumulation of polar ice, whereby the earth's tilt is suddenly and radically shifted by the enormous weight of the ice caps, causing calamitous flooding and the movement of global climate zones.
