Mallove slaying may be linked

Dr. Eugene Mallove was the President of the nonprofit New Energy Foundation, Inc. and held the position of Editor-in-Chief of Infinite Energy Magazine since 1995. Dr. Mallove held a Master of Science Degree and Bachelor of Science Degree in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from MIT and a Science Doctorate in Environmental Health Sciences from Harvard University. Dr. Mallove had broad experience in high technology engineering companies including Hughes Research Laboratories, TASC (The Analytic Science Corporation), and MIT Lincoln Laboratory.

Since 1991 he worked as a consultant to U.S. corporations and investment firms doing and planning R & D in new energy. He taught science journalism at MIT and at Boston University, and he was Chief Science Writer at the MIT News Office when cold fusion erupted. Prior to that, he was a top science writer and broadcaster with the Voice of America in Washington, DC. He was also the author of three science books and wrote several science and technology articles for magazines and newspapers.

Norwich Bulletin


NORWICH -- City police are exploring a link in the beating deaths of two men, in Norwich and Pawcatuck, that occurred under similar circumstances.

Three months have passed without an arrest in the slaying of world-renowned scientist and Norwich native Dr. Eugene Mallove, 56, of New Hampshire.

He was discovered at 10:55 p.m. May 14 at his family-owned home at 119 Salem Turnpike in Norwich. He died of multiple injuries to the head and neck during a suspected robbery.

About 25 miles away in Pawcatuck on the same night, Stonington police found the badly beaten body of A. Gordon Jeffrey, 89, who died several weeks after the suspected robbery.


Scientist's violent death shocks cold fusion research network
July 27, 2004

Eugene Mallove, one of cold fusion's most ardent advocates, was overjoyed in April when the US Department of Energy agreed to give the scorned subject another review. To him, it was a breakthrough: Years of work trying to get mainstream science to pay attention to cold fusion seemed to be paying off.


But a month later, on May 14, Mallove was dead, brutally murdered at his childhood home in Norwich, Conn,

Police, who have not yet made an arrest in the murder, have no evidence Mallove's cold fusion work contributed to his death -- they believe it was an act of random violence. To still-reeling friends, family, and colleagues, however, Mallove's death was particularly cruel because he was so optimistic that cold fusion was finally going to get its just review.

''My father was so passionate about doing what he felt was right (even though) everywhere he turned doors were shut in his face," said his daughter Kimberlyn Woodard. She used to affectionately call her father the ''mad scientist" for the experiments he always had going in their home's basement. ''He was a brilliant man, he could have worked anywhere he chose and he gave that up because of the possibility there was something to cold fusion," she said.

Mallove, 56, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduate, was chief science writer at MIT when the cold fusion debacle exploded in 1989. Skeptical at first, he soon became a believer and grew increasingly frustrated with the scientific establishment's refusal to reexamine cold fusion. Finally, in 1991, he quit, disgusted with what he saw as mainstream scientists' unwillingness to look seriously at cold fusion.

The Significance of Dr. Eugene Mallove's graceful tenacity, integrity, and intent
by Leslie R. Pastor <email >
May 20, 2004

Dr. Eugene Mallove single-handedly fought the 'educated idiots' and provided a forum for both discovery, verification, and peer review of 'new energy technologies.' Many have the audacity to say: "What can one man do?

Dr. Gene Mallove stood within the gap 'sparking' continuity of a very difficult subject matter. He provided a world-class forum so that like-minded 'intellect' could maintain 'integrity' in the collection of qualified data so that research would continue unabated.

Dr. Mallove presented his 'credentials' when he 'resigned' from MIT, rather than be associated with less than integrity. Dr. Arthur C. Clarke recognized Dr. Mallove's true grit--providing much needed support and encouragement.

Let us continue, maintaining Gene's momentum, he would have it so, as his life clearly and unequivocally demonstrated. What can one man do? Much, if you have the graceful tenacity, integrity and intent on discerning truth in the face of lies, and screaming hordes of 'educated idiots'. His voice, at the time, was solitary, singular and significant. He fulfilled the profoundest of needs, the rebuttal and defense in the face of defiance propounded and enunciated by Thomas S. Kuhn regarding 'novelties of fact.'

All the Best,
Leslie R. Pastor

As a science writer, Dr. Mallove maintained the intellectual stimulus lacking in most researchers. His ability was his capability to put into words and film what many in his field could not or would not have the capacity to do.
