   I don't remember the Englishman's name unfortunately but I do recall that
he had kept this hypothesis under his hat for most of his life for fear of
being ridiculed and perhaps losing his job. I also remember that he found a
staunch supporter in a woman whose name was Morgan I think. A few books were
written on this topic by the two of them but I've never been able to get
my hands on one to see if his thesis holds water, so to speak.
   Can anybody out there furnish the name of this Englishman and comment on
the validity of his ideas?

There is a thread going on on Ellen Morgan's "Aquatic Ape" book
on talk.origins, that you, and others who are interested, might
want to tune into.
