Isaac Newton Vail (b.1840 Barnesville, OH, d. Jan 26, 1912 Pasadena, CA [1]) (Isaac N. Vail) was a quaker learned in mathematics, astronomy, Latin and Greek.[2] He is known for his "Canopy Theory" who, "in 1886, had come to the conclusion that the Earth had once been girdled by a doughnut-like structure of ice crystals which, in keeping with Genesis 1:6-8, he alluded to as the firmament".[3]

Alfred de Grazia in his book, Chaos and Creation, labels Vail as a prominent catastrophist.[4]
