Remembering Donald Keyhoe and the Birth of Ufology

Following Kenneth Arnold's report of odd, fast-moving aerial objects in the summer of 1947, interest in UFO Sightings of "flying disks" and "flying saucers" was widespread, and Keyhoe followed the UFO subject with some interest, though he was initially skeptical of any extraordinary answer to the UFO Sighting question. For some time, True (a popular American men's magazine) had been inquiring of officials as to the flying saucer question, with little to show for their efforts. In about May 1949, after the U.S. Air Force had released contradictory information about the saucers, editor Ken Purdy turned to Keyhoe, who had written for the magazine, but who also, importantly, had many friends and contacts in the military and the Pentagon. After some investigation, Keyhoe became convinced that the flying saucers were real. As their forms, flight maneuvers, speeds and light technology was apparently far ahead of any nation's developments, Keyhoe became convinced that they must be the products of unearthly intelligence, and that the U.S. government was trying to suppress the whole truth about the subject. This conclusion was based especially on the response Keyhoe found when he quizzed various officials about flying saucers. He was told there was nothing to the subject, yet was simultaneously denied access to saucer-related documents.
