Lewis Mason Clement and the Proximity Fuse

From: "Jim&Anne"

Read the article on Lewis Mason Clement [grandson of the CPRR's Lewis Metzler Clement], very interesting, tho' I always understood that the British invented the proximity fuse and it and radar components were given in exchange to the US during the war by R V Jones, after an agreement between Churchill and Roosevelt to exchange scientific information?
