Roy Blaine Beebe (August 22, 1884 - June 15, 1966) was an American inventor and proponent of a theory that human ailments are static-induced, a condition curable by use of cosmic rectifier rays, which he used to treat foodstuffs and water (for drinking and bathing). At the peak of his active period, in the late-1940s, Beebe attracted a thousand people at day to his Long Beach, California home, where he offered free lectures and open access to his cosmic ray devices.
