At some British university a fictional professor was invented in the 20th century. He also had is own office and his own (fictional) field of research, in which he published about three papers (in a fictional journal). I read about him a few years ago. I think that he had his own Wikipedia article (English Wikipedia). His publications were cited a few times in real publications.
It is not a fictional character in a book or a movie. (Otherwise I would have asked this question on another Stack Exchange site.) But he was invented by the people working at the particular university.
I am looking for the person’s name (fictional), his field of research (fictional), and the university’s name (real).
