Andrija Mohorovičić, distinguished Croatian seismologist, discoverer of the MOHO discontinuity
From the abstract of the article: "Some seismograms of the destructive earthquake occurred on May 23rd, 1925 in North Tazima district, show distinctly so-called the Mohorovičić wave. One of them is shown in Fig. (4) magnified from the seismograms of Wiechert's 200kg. seismograph installed at the Central Meteorological Observatory in Tokyo. (Epicenter distance about 450km.) ..."
Note that the name of Mohorovičić appears already in the title.
