You missed a significant one

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
I should have written it up myself when the data was fresh. Now it seems to have been forgotten. Never could motivate David to write but I can see why now.......

The study of sharpness longevity for the various plane blade steels in use.

A massive amount of work with the result that some of us now have valid data to guide our plane blade choices when buying vs making. Lee Valley, a sponsor of this Forum, benefited from this work when it was shown that PMV11 provided significantly longer edge life.
