In this paper I want to summarize the work of some 50 inventor/researchers that claim to have discovered anomalous weight loss results, and in a few cases, propulsion of a craft, or otherwise made an important contribution towards achieving control of gravity in a more practical way. There is no pretense that this is a complete list, but serves as representative only. Please note: this list does not include inertia engine inventors--only gravity (presumed) related devices/experiments/theories are dealt with here. Many of these name have been around for a long time and are part of the folklore of anti gravity and space drive investigations that I have been involved in since 1960. The quality, completeness, accuracy, credibility of the information varies widely from one case to another. As part of this effort, I did an IBM patent server search under "antigravity" and found only a few listed inventions, some of little relevance. Also, I searched the Library of Congress and found 8 books with antigravity in tittle since 1898, and over 500 books on gravitation. I have attempted to come up with a rating system; a weighting factor and level of importance scoring system that allows one to rank these claims. Hence, a person, such as an investor or scientific investigator can look at my table and decide where to put his limited resources to bare, to yield a useful result in a practical application that has commercial value. Table 1. lists the names of the inventor/researcher and the brief descriptive tittle of the invention or device. The table is arranged alphabetically by the person's last name, and a detailed description follows with a diagram of the device where available. Emphasis at each description is on data derived from an experiment (not so much theory), that had witnesses or was confirmed by others, published or a patent obtained with reports/photos /graphs/film or videos, from the files of said patent or other sources. Some government sources (unclassified) have been obtained; but much of this kind of material is probably classified and not therefore included. In addition, the educational background and experience of the person is assessed. Finally, a list of publications, books about or by this person are given. An important additional source of information is the extensive bibliography on antigravity by Richard Stirniman. This compendium of AG inventors and their devices, however varied in quality, constitutes the empirical basis of the belief that, not withstanding the dismal projections of the General Theory of Relativity, that some form of gravity control is possible or already complete.
