Donald Howard Menzel (11 April 1901 – 14 December 1976) was an American astronomer and astrophysicist, and critic of Velikovsky. Prof. Vine Deloria comments:

"Velikovsky suggested that the sun was an electrically charged body. Donald Menzel, a Harvard astronomer and one Velikovsky's most bitter critics, ridiculed the idea".[1]
