By the 1830s I believe battery technology had improved enough along with primitive electric motors that there would have been fans nobody would have a clue about.

Edward Johnson(Bergmann & Co./Interior Conduit CEO) stated in 94 he never thought enough of the Edison fan motors marketed in 1893 to patent them. Fact Jack.  :D

Jim, if you dig around in past posts you will find mention and an image of Green's fan.

Wheeler made his first claim to be Mr. Fan in 1894. When Wheeler made his claim he could not specify a date in which he conducted experiments with applying a fan blade. Sigmund Bergmann validated his partner Edward Johnson of Bergmann & Co. established in 81 was experimenting with placing fan blades on Edison motor shafts as early as 82. The Iceberg battery fan advertised in the 80s was patented by George Stout. Stout clearly states on his patent description details of his motor design to be used for applications like fans.... and mechanical toys. 

In the early 90s it is clearly evident there is jing to be made manufacturing fan motors based on the number of fans from various manufacturers in electrical trade. By mid 90s fans are really cooking. Electrical generating stations are being established.  Why didn't Wheeler want to be Mr. Fan in the 80s? C&C had fan motors on the market back in the 80s. I think the answer is really simple, In the 90s it was clear you could fill your wallet in the fan motor business. Being Mr. Fan is good advertising. Fact Jack.  :D
