Subject: P-47: UFO History: A Call for Papers

To: UFO Historians and Other UFO Researchers

PROJECT 1947 requests the following for publication:

1. Summaries of serious projects currently conducted by
individuals and organizations. Summaries should not be more than
one page. While we would like to know about investigations
concerning historical material, summaries of other projects that
adhere to scientific or scholarly principles or that are
conducted in a methodical manner, are most welcome. Please
include contact information.

2. Articles, notes, little known items on historical UFO
subjects and research techniques:

  a. The History of the UFO Phenomena: The natural history, that
  is the history of the phenomenon itself, history of UFO
  investigations, society's reactions to UFOs, etc.,

  b. Research Techniques: how to conduct historical
  investigations, FOIA strategies, suggestions of likely avenues
  of investigations, etc.,

  c. Related Historical Items: historical items on unusual
  shaped or performing aircraft (V-173, XF5U-1, Silver Bug,
  etc.), other unusual phenomena (ball lightning, sprites,
  earthquake lights, etc.), and sociological items ("War of the
  Worlds" broadcasts reactions, etc.)

  d. New accounts of historical sightings or significant new
  information on older sightings, significant news items that
  have not seen wide distribution, and

  e. Other UFO Investigations: attempted scientific or other
  methodical investigations of the UFO phenomenon or sightings.
  (For example: How did the Civilian Saucer of Investigations of
  Los Angeles conduct their investigations and evaluation. This
  is probably a question that we will never be able to answer,
  however they did subject sightings to a rigorous evaluation

  Articles, notes, short items, material that has not seen wide
  distribution or material that has not been published are most
  welcome. We intend to bring out a publication or place the
  material on a dedicated UFO history website which features
  lists of serious ongoing projects and interesting articles.
  (The Project 1947 website will not be used for this purpose,
  but the Internet medium will be a new dedicated UFO history

Generally, we consider historical UFO material would include,
but be necessarily limited to, pre-1947 items, material from the
early UFO era to the end of Project Blue Book. Later items will
also be considered.

My personal contribution is an interview with a retired Air
Force general, "I Was the First UFO Investigator!"

It should go without saying that material outside of the US is
most welcome.

Please submit material to jan@cyberzone.net or
project1947@yahoo.com or to the postal address below:

Comments and suggestions are welcome.

Please feel free to redistribute of this message widely.

Thank you.
