The first person to suggest adjusting our clocks was New Zealand entomologist George Vernon Hudson. In 1895, he proposed advancing them two full hours in the summer because he wanted more daylight for hunting insects. 

In 1907, an Englishman named William Willett proposed advancing the clocks 20 minutes every Sunday in April, then reversing them 20 minutes each week in September. 

The Germans were the first to institute Daylight Saving Time in 1916, and the United States followed suit in 1918 as a wartime measure, though it was repealed in 1919.
