Hello List,

Not being a ufologist and therefore mostly immune from their
spats and jealousies, was curious why Creighton should arouse
passions - so looked him up and got some interesting links,
bearing in mind that I already read and revere Andrew Lang as
one of the most informed and intelligent of the early
anthropologists.

BTW - it seems that Creighton was a bit touchy also - as you can
see in the second of these links:

Obit - Gordon Creighton 1908 - 2003

"A Brief Account of the True Nature of the "UFO Entities" by
Gordon Creighton

http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/UFOs/UFO_Entities.htm

which referenced this:

"The Secret Commonwealth" by Robert Kirk 1691, re-issued by
anthropologist and folklorist Andrew Lang in 1893

Thanks for the initial spur.


Cheers
