It has been suggested that since the 'Who's Who 2019' list of active LENR groups and individuals is already proving to be useful, I create a more history-based document looking right back to the origins of the field and listing its deceased contributors.. A 'Who Was Who' in fact. Since the history is long, and the information not always easy to find I (and Shane) would be most appreciative if anyone would care to help by posting suggestions for entries into this thread. Shane and I will create a master document incorporating all appropriate suggestions. The idea is to capture a little of this history before it's all gone.
Would be very helpful if rather than just suggesting names you could create the briefest of biographies, like the example given here. These can be expanded to include more detail as time allows. The format is simple. as you can see, and the length? no more than 150 words please.
