NICAP's UFO Investigator and Selected NICAP Documents
CUFOS acquired the files and other material of NICAP in the early
1980s as that organization was failing. We also have a complete
collection of NICAP's UFO Investigator, the flagship publication of that
organization. Altogether 162 issues were published, from July 1957 to
June 1980. You can download each issue in a separate printable PDF file.
In addition to the UFO Investigator, also available
are the following publications released by NICAP: the Affiliate
Newsletter, UFO Quarterly Review, Special "Confidential" Bulletins, "The
Year of the UFO, A Special Calendar of Historical Highlights", and
finally over 300 select NICAP documents (jpg format) giving over 1600
pages in this collection.
In these documents, you can read the original
correspondence of T. Townsend Brown, Donald Keyhoe, as well as other
NICAP staff, and some of the NICAP founding documents. These document
NICAP's struggles and crises and finally NICAP's transfer to CUFOS. As
an added bonus a complete copy of the very rare UFO's Secrecy Danger's
& Evidence 1960 document sent to Congress is included. As UFO
researcher Brad Sparks has stated, "It's a massive collection of
impossibly difficult-to-obtain internal NICAP documents and all of its
outstanding publications, many of which remain unexplored because of
their scarcity. This is a must-get collection if you want the inside
story of UFOlogy from the beginning."
A very brief overview of NICAP is available on Wikipedia.
"The single most influential UFO organization in history, NICAP, expired
more than two decades ago. Now its remarkable background of
publications and selected historical documents is once again available
through the Center for UFO Studies, custodian of NICAP's archive, by way
of a unique CD that opens the door back to those exciting days of
military and congressional involvement in UFO research" Barry
Greenwood, Clear Intent
