Lester Jennings Hendershot (1898-1961), born in West Elizabeth, Pennsylvania, was the inventor of the so-called Fuelless Motor (1928). In the 1920's Lester Hendershot was working on a new type of aviation compass. He stumbled across a method of generating energy. His "Hendershot magnetic motor" drew attention of the press and attracted big name investors as Charles Lindbergh. He got into political trouble promoting his device and consequently tried to take his business to Mexico. He is reported to have accepted an offer he couldn't refuse being paid never to work on his device again.

In 1961 Dr. Ed Skilling, from Columbia University, successfully built and tested a Hendershot free energy device, out of which he got 300 watts. Skilling had been associated with Hendershot and learned of the device through him. The generator was self-resonant at 500 kHz. - PESWiki

His son Mark M. Hendershot wrote what he knew about the Hendershot motor in his book, From the Archives of Lester J. Hendershot.

My name is Mark Hendershot, Lester J. Hendershot was my Father. Lester was an inventor and in his many attempts at producing practical items, he had a moderate success a few times with electronic toys, and had sold some of his ideas to small manufacturers. His biggest idea, however, was so revolutionary that it embarrassed the nation's top scientists because they couldn't explain it, and if it could be perfected, it would possibly eliminate the need for public electric utilities in many instances, and it would completely change most of our present concepts of motivation...
