Ernest Jones? He of Freud fame? I was once deep in research on the Chartist, Ernest Jones.

Of Freud fame in a way, yes. He did much to popularize psychoanalysis and was Freud's official biographer. He originated the concept of 'rationalization' in its psychological sense. It's now I think classified as one of the standard defense mechanisms, along with projection, denial, etc.
