UFO News Article:
“House Science Committee Seriously Studies UFOs”,
30 July 1968 (The Bryan Times, Ohio)

This is an article regarding the 1968 U.S. Congressional UFO Hearings that were held on 29 July 1968:,1413242

Quote from the article:
”Whatever they are, the six scientists at a symposium sponsored by the House Science Committee agreed it is time to stop laughing off the ‘hard core’ group of unexplained UFOs and start long-term, government-backed programs to understand them.

Those appearing at the symposium included Dr. J. Allen Hynek, director of the Northwestern University’s Dearborn Observatory; Dr. James E. McDonald, senior physicist with the Institute of Atmospheric Physics at the University of Arizona and Dr. Robert M. L. Baker, Jr. from the Computer Sciences Corp., El Segundo, Calif.

He (Dr. James E. McDonald) also said many UFO sightings were reported up and down the Eastern Seaboard around the time of the Northeastern power blackout late in 1965 – precipitated by a power pulse the cause of which has never been identified.”
