Charles Hutchins Hapgood (May 17, 1904 – December 21, 1982) was a major crank proponent of the crust displacement hypothesis. He wrote books such as the The Earth's Shifting Crust (1958), Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings (1966), and The Path of the Pole (1970) to explain it. The theory has also been integrated and changed by several other "theorists" in later times into a larger theory called the cataclysmic pole shift hypothesis in an attempt to sound like the more legitimate scientific theories of true pole shift. rational wiki
Librarians Rose and Rand Flem-Ath as well as author and former journalist Graham Hancock base portions of their works on Hapgood’s evidence for catastrophe at the end of the Last Glacial Maximum. Hapgood spent ten years working with New England medium Elwood Babbitt, attempting to make contact with notable figures from the past. wiki
