That's Frances (the female name), not Francis (the male equivalent), Swan. Mrs. Swan's psychic contacts gave rise to a fantastic legend about UFOs over CIA headquarters. The legend, which David mentions, isn't true (or, more accurately, is wildly exaggerated). Nor is there any reason to believe Swan's aliens existed outside her head. Still, it's one of the more colorful episodes from the early saucer contactee era. There is a comprehensive account of the episode (along with a separate treatment of Wilbert Smith's involvement with space communicants) in my UFO Encyclopedia, if anyone wants to know more.
