Albert S. Janin
Albert Stanley Janin was an aero inventor, notably of an early hydroaeroplane design. He had over 100 patents on various subjects. He and Glenn Curtiss had a series of patent priority lawsuits. A 1916 court decision went Janin's way, but in the next five or so years he lost related cases and appeals. He died at about age 51, impoverished, after a long illness.
Thanks to Sean Seyer for alerting us to these patent lawsuits and Janin's role.
