If you want to see its original formulation, see Alister Hardy, "Was Man
More Aquatic in the Past?" _New Scientist_ 7:642-5 (April 1960). You'll
probably have to visit a university library to find it.

You'll find a good capsule biography of Sir Alister Hardy in the 1981-5
edition of _The Dictionary of National Biography_. It, of course, is
silent on aquatic apes.
