New Energy Advocate Hal Fox Dies

Harold “Hal” Fox, a cold fusion and new energy advocate
for many years, passed away on August 20, just a few
days shy of his 89th birthday. He was born in Vineyard, Utah
on August 24, 1923. He is survived by his wife, Joyce, daughter
Nancy Jane and numerous grandchildren and greatgrandchildren.
He was predeceased by three children and his
first wife Lucy.
Fox served in the Army Signal Corps (World War II,
Philippines) and was a meteorologist in the Air Force Weather
Service. He was a missile systems engineer at Hughes, a member
of the Advanced Engineering Department at Sperry and
director of the first research laboratory at the University of
Utah Research Park.
Fox mentions his entrance into the cold fusion field in his
1994 Cold Fusion (Issue 1) column “From the Great Salt
Lake.” He explained that “immediately after” he heard about
the announcement of cold fusion, discovered at his alma
mater the University of Utah, he felt he needed to get
involved. He and a few friends in the Salt Lake area established
the Fusion Information Center (FIC) by mid-April
1989. In that same issue, he wrote of some of the science
world’s inability to replicate the Fleischmann-Pons experiment:
“Obviously, what took Pons and Fleischmann several
years of work was not replicated in a few days by those
unskilled in the art.”
FIC began publishing the monthly newsletter Fusion Facts
in July 1989. Mahadeva Srinivasan said, “The Fusion Facts
newsletter played a very crucial role in the formative years of
the field by providing a forum through which rapid communications
on preliminary experimental results could be
publicized.” Edmund Storms also felt the importance of the
newsletter: “Hal provided a dose of reality about what was
happening, which helped unite the few people who were
trying to discover the reality rather than reject what was
becoming increasingly obvious.” Robert Bush added that the
newsletter, “helped to create an amazing sense of community
among the various international cold fusion workers.”
In late 1989, Fox started the first of his many technology
companies, Future Energy Applied Technology (FEAT),
which became ENECO
