OF CHARLES HOY FORT
The founder of this 'different' science and biggest researcher of the strange phenomena and anomalous occurrences was one rather interesting character who lived and worked in the second half of the 19th and in the first half of the 20th century. His name was Charles Hoy Fort.
OF WILLIAM CORLISS
The biggest name in this type of research today is probably William R. Corliss. An expert in the domain of astronomy and astrophysics, Corliss has written a whole score of books on communication systems, the universe, and some technical papers which I did not fully comprehend so am wont to discuss.
