Spanish ufologist Rafael Farriols died in Barcelona, on 27
December 2006

Born in 1928, a renowned businessman and an active ufologist
since the '60s, he had long been known as a dedicated collector
of any documentation about the "Ummo affair" (the hundreds of
letters sent by self-proclaimed aliens to Spanish ufologists for
decades), a subject Farriols organized the very first congress
upon, in 1971.

In 1969 he wrote with Antonio Ribera a book titled "Un caso
perfecto" (A Perfect Case) about a complex series of sightings
and photographs taken near Madrid in 1967, and a translation was
published in Italy, too.
