March 1895 - Boynton apparently never got the fan patented, he only has two Canadian patents for wrenches.

A powerful fan, the term is general and not specific. I find it applied mostly to circulator type fans, but have also seen the term used in conjunction with reference to usually powerful desk fans. Any other questions, please PM me, I'm always glad to help. This prevents multiple replies unrelated to the thread, which are counterproductive to it's dedicated purpose.

1943 - Special thanks to Steve Rockwell for this amazing story:


[size=
]

[size=]


[size=]
[size=Oakes was murdered sometime after midnight on July 8, 1943. He was struck four times behind the left ear with a miner's hand pick, to disguise the wounds from a silver ice pick (Simpsons of the Strand), and was then burned all over his body using insecticide, with the flames being concentrated around the eyes. His body was then sprinkled with feathers from a mattress. When Oakes was discovered, the feathers were still being gently blown over his body by the bedroom fan]
[size=De Marigny married Sir Harry Oakes's daughter, Nancy, the day after her 18th birthday.[5] It was de Marigny's third marriage; both of the first two were also to wealthy women who broke off those relationships soon after marriage. When Sir Harry was murdered on July 7, 1943, de Marigny was the main suspect and was arrested shortly after.[6] At his trial, detectives which the Duke of Windsor, then Governor of the Bahamas, had brought in from Miami claimed to have found de Marigny's fingerprint near the bed of Sir Harry Oakes.[7] The defense argued that the fingerprint had been lifted and placed in the bedroom.[8] Nancy Oakes supported her husband throughout the trial and testified on his behalf.[9] There is a theory that Sir Harry was murdered because he was going to reveal the existence of a scheme involving the Duke of Windsor and Nazi German money being laundered through Mexico. Implicated in this treasonous venture, as well in as the murder, are Harold Christie and his brother Frank. It is typical of the good burghers of Nassau, the very same people whom de Marigny despised, that any scandal involving "one of their own" is swept under the carpet. ]The jury acquitted de Marigny of the murder charge but gave a recommendation that he was an "undesirable alien" and should be removed from the island. The deportation recommendation is rumored to have been influenced by his unpopularity among the ruling class on the island. (The Duke of Windsor had described de Marigny as "an unscrupulous adventurer [with] an evil reputation for immoral conduct with young girls".[10]) Following his deportation, the de Marignys settled in Cuba[11] before separating in 1949.
