ADM dates to 1960, so they have the drop on everyone these days.  With positive bare mass, the ADM model gives m = (e^2/G)^1/2; far too large (by 21 orders of magnitude in Gaussian units).

JS: Not when you add Abdus Salam's f-gravity - that was my point of course. Then Deser's 1960 idea works pretty well, but it needs to be supplemented by the Bohm quantum potential. Again today Salam's f-gravity is reborn in brane theory with extra space dimensions.

JW: The negative bare mass version that returns a realistic electron mass, though wasn't worked out until 1993-4; and spin didn't get included until 2010.  So your '73 work is quite a bit earlier.  :-)
