UFO News Article:
“Winchell Says Flying Saucer
Mystery Seen First in 1913”

7 July 1947 
(San Jose Evening News, California)

The article is written by New York columnist Walter Winchell:

The article reports on R. Dewitt’s 1947 book (presents two UFO cases), “Forgotten Mysteries.”

The first report focuses on the UFO research work (!) of Astronomer Professor Chant of Toronto (Canada) and a 
9 February 1913 UFO incident (30 or 32 UFOs) Chant researched.

The second report informs about some ‘unusual lights’ which were sighted from the British ship, H.M.S. Caroline on 24 February 1893, at 10:00 p.m. The incident occurred in the East China Sea, between Shanghai and Japan.

The interesting thing about the book is that it was published months before the start of the 1947 U.S. UFO wave.
