Author and lawyer

In 1943 he published a solution to the Voynich Manuscript, based on the theory that it had been written by Roger Bacon. (This has since been disproved by the dating of the manuscript to the 15th century rather than the 13th.)

He also published various other book of a similar nature - including 'The Cyphers in the De Rerum Natura' (by Lucretius: Wikipedia page [1]), 'Shakespeare's maze further deciphered' (1938), and 'The Cypher in the Sonnets' (1940).

Some biographical details on the Wikipedia pages on the VM [2] and History of the Shakespeare authorship question [3].
