Subject: Coral Lorenzen Letters Posted

This will probably start a mini-firestorm amongst those of you
with prior NICAP affiliations - I was an active member, too, from
1964 on - but over on my blog at:


I've posted a few 1966 letters from APRO's Coral Lorenzen. If
you aren't too familiar with Coral the person, these will give
you an introduction.

After posting letter after letter from Gerald Ford when he was a
Michigan congressman, and still I have more... it's a nice
change for me. However, as you'll see, the late Coral had her
opinions about NICAP, just as NICAP officials had theirs about
APRO. The current posts also show her conflict with the late
broadcaster Frank Edwards about the 1964 Socorro UFO case.

Maybe it's not that evident, but I do wring my hands about
describing Coral to the readers. I never met Coral, nor her
husband Jim, face-to-face, but the correspondence and occasional
phone conversations, in addition to my APRO membership extending
back to 1965, gave me a pretty good idea of, at least, Coral's
relationship to UFO research.

Other List contributors here, such as Jerry Clark and Richard
Hall, could surely be far more prolific about Coral and APRO,
and probably correct me on a few things, because I do tend to be
very surface in my writing. But, at any rate, I will continue to
go through my old files to post a little UFO history for those
who wonder about the years way back.

And thanks for keeping us current, Errol!
