UFO Collection

The truth is out there, perhaps tucked away in a Clarksburg
native's personal collection.


In the 1950's, UFOs, monsters, and ghost stories were part of
Americana, and Clarksburg native Gray Barker was right in the
middle of it. He began exhaustive research and eventually began
publishing his own UFO magazine "The Saucarian". In 1956, Barker
wrote his book "They Knew Too Much About Flying Saucers", and
launched what today is known as the UFO conspiracy theory. The
ideas of government cover-up, Men In Black, and aliens among us,
were born with Gray Barker and his research. Barker passed away
in 1984, but his extensive collection of books, letters,
interviews, photographs, and notes are available to the public
courtesy of The Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library and its
Special Collections section. Regardless of your beliefs, this
collection is impressive, and is a true cultural experience for
anyone. Head to Clarksburg and check out the Gray Barker
Collection.
