Subject: P1947 - Jan Aldrich's Roswell Trip

Greetings List,

Just returned from a trip to New Mexico to check out George
Fawcett's donation to the International Roswell UFO Museum. It
was pleasant to meet with Wendy Connors and Loren Gross.

It was interesting to see some of the things in George's
collection which threw some light on other things that we had
from other sources. George's collection is a hodge podge of all
types on ufo related material. George was never too critical in
what he accepted, but he was an enthusiastic collector of
anything related to UFOs.

There are hundreds of leads to interesting material. Greenwood
and I are already working on some of these items. There are also
a large amount of "mystery" newspaper clippings (ie clippings
with not identification).

Old hands from the New England UFO Study Group will be happy to
know that not all the material and sighting investigations were
destroyed by Steve Putnam's wife. Besides the material that Joe
Nyman, Barry Greenwood, and Ed Fogg had retained, George had
significant material from the group in his files--in some cases
duplicates of material that Putnam had.

I did not finish with George's material. Also, I was unable to
get to Fort Bliss and El Paso to do some research there.
Likewise I was unable to check with the New Mexico Newspaper
Project to see what new material had been added to the
conservation efforts.

Most of the material now on hand at the Roswell Museum comes
from George Fawcett. Two other people donated collections to
George years ago and their material is intergrated into his

Robert Sabo's collection consisted mainly of books, journals,
magazine articles and pamphlets. There were few cases files or other
similar material. Most of what does exist involves the Brooksville,
Florida CE3 incident.

George has retained about 400-600 cases from the Carolinas and
Florida for a book he is writing. He also retains certain of the
better case files.

BEst regards,
