I recently downloaded to Kindle "Lost History (Explorations in Nuclear Research)" by Steven B Krivit.
Essentially, he says after the quantum theory was accepted, and until the Manhattan project, many (basically amateur) researchers noticed what appeared to be transmutations occurring without the high energy bombardment studies that lead to nuclear fusion as practiced today.
The lost history period spanned 1912 to 1927. It's fascinating. I wish Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann could have read it before they shot their mouths off without replicated research, basically placing LENR on the same false native as the global warming hoax.
