Wasn’t this _Charles_ Wheatstone, inventor of the eponymous bridge as well as the stereoscope?
The paper suggests that the technique, called free-fusion stereocomparison, which takes advantage of the brain’s ability to perceive depth by integrating the slightly different views from each eye, was known nearly a thousand years before it was articulated by stereoscope inventor Sir George Wheatstone in the 19th century.

Last night on PBS’s NewsHour, a reporter was commenting on the
wildfire which is threatening Mt. Wilson. In describing the
observatory’s historical importance, he identified it as the research
facility used by astronomer “Charles” Hubble. Oh well. It’s really
hard to keep all these dead white guys straight, especially when it’s
only their last names that are familiar.
Yesterday, on CBS Radio News, Mt. Wilson was “the observatory where Hubble
came up with the Big Bang theory”.
