Quick Overview

In 1947 six flying saucers circled above a harbor boat in Puget Sound near Tacoma, Washington, one wobbling and spewing slag. The falling junk killed a dog and burned a boy’s arm. His father, Harold Dahl, witnessed it all and brought his partner, Fred Crisman, down the next day to see yet another UFO. The Maury Island incident became the first UFO event of the modern era.

Details

In 1968, New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison subpoenaed Fred Crisman as part of his investigation into the JFK assassination, which became the subject of Oliver Stone’s 1992 JFK movie. Garrison believed that Crisman was the infamous grassy knoll shooter. And he’s the central figure in the “Mystery Tramp” photo of the Dallas rail yard hobos.

Illustrated with rare newspaper images, JFK & UFO interconnects the lingering mysteries of America’s most notorious assassination and its weird ufological subculture. It examines the denizens of the bizarre, semi-spook underground reflecting a stranger and more true history than offered by the mainstream.

This is a revised version of an earlier edition, which went out of print in 2004 and is now a collectors’ item. New research in this edition includes:
  • What Kenneth Arnold came to believe about UFOs.
  • Ray Palmer and the original “moon hoax.”
  • The obsfucated analysis of Maury Island by Ed Ruppelt, author of “The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects.”
  • The Nazi connection.
  • Close-up on Guy Banister, an FBI agent inked to both Maury Island and JFK. Oswald worked for him as part of his “Fair Play For Cuba” cover.
  • Fred Crisman: right wing radio talk show host before his time, with material from heretofore unseen newsletter from The Institute for American Democracy.
  • From Danger Man to The Invaders: the changing image of the TV spy. (Crisman felt The Invaders was based on his life.)
  • Gerald Heard and the missing Maury Island chapter.
