AFU Newsletter

Since 1975 AFU has published a newsletter, from 1978 in the English language.  Publication of the AFU Newsletter made a halt in 1995, after issue #39, but resumed in 2001.  The irregular AFU Newsletter is primarily focused on news from, and about, the AFU foundation, and on historical research aspects of ufology. 

The AFU Newsletter is intended merely as an exchange publication. It is now distributed via Internet download, but also in a very small printed edition to people & places we know are not on the Internet. We would like to thank all those who  faithfully send us their publications and other exchange material. All material sent to us is catalogued and saved for posterity.
