The pitchfork was developed by Alan H. Andrews under the guidance of the famous Roger W Babson (1875-1967)

Alan H. Andrews and Roger W. Babson. Highly likely with the help from their friend George Marechal.

The pitchfork is part of collection of techniques, called the Action/Reaction techniques. The technique was originally called Median Line Study, but soon got the nickname pitchfork due to it's visual appearance on a chart.
