Stan and List,

The American Philosophical Society url for this is:


Click on MSS Department and use their search engine for Klass
UFOs, and you will find a list of the holdings. Your name is not
on the list either, nor is Jim McDonald's as I recall. Very
interesting selectivity there. Of course every kook and debunker
is included. Perhaps we should ask CSICOP to justify this
