Congressional Testimony from the Hearings of July 29, 1968? It
is 71 pages long and has information on 41 separate cases which
he investigated. Best single paper of which I am aware about
Jim was a Professor of Physics (Specialty Upper Atmosphere
Physics) who personally spoke to more than 500 witnesses and
gave presentations to many professional groups. He also wrote a
number of papers which I believe are available from the FUND
though the Cong. Testimony is not. Yes it is available from me
at POB 958, Houlton, ME 04730-0958 $10. including First Class
Postage. I do list a number of publications (Most not available
from me) in TOP SECRET/MAJIC's 10 page Bibliography. Or try
Bruce's book 'UFOs Are Real: and Here's the Proof'.
