History of Metal Detectors

Besides the technical aspects of detectors, I'm also fascinated by their history. Maybe it's because of the myths surrounding the early history, or the secrecy that surrounds later developments. Did Gerhard Fisher invent the metal detector? Did Minelab invent the multifrequency detector? I hope to eventually document the entire history of detectors, and will appreciate any input from others on this topic.
