Hello List,

Just followed a link (from Terry Colvin iirc) and found mention
of an interesting sounding book:



Grassroots UFOs - Case Reports From The Center For UFO Studies
Michael D Swords

Over a period of a dozen years, John Timmerman ran a traveling
UFO exhibit for the Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS) that appeared
in malls from Seattle to Dallas to Nova Scotia, and from Guam to
Puerto Rico. In the process he spoke to hundreds of people from
around the world who came in off the street and described their
own UFO sightings and experiences. Timmerman ended up with
nearly 1,200 taped interviews, firsthand testimony with the
lingering taste of truth.

Their stories present the UFO phenomenon in all its raw glory,
describing lights, disks, cigars, boomerangs, and objects where
the structure was. well. indescribable; close encounters of all
kinds, landing traces, physiological effects, vehicle
interference, entities, radar cases, jet scrambles, crashed
disks, morphing objects; and cases of such concentrated
weirdness they'll just make you shake your head, leaving you
puzzled and uncomfortable - if not totally floored. A mighty
strange universe is providing this entertainment.

JOHN TIMMERMAN graduated from Cornell University in Sociology
and had a long and successful career in business. He was
intrigued almost immediately by the UFO phenomenon when
sightings began, and in the 1950s he was one of the volunteers
for Project A at Ohio Northern University in a long-forgotten
chapter in UFO history. In 1978, after attending a lecture by
astronomer J. Allen Hynek, he volunteered with CUFOS, taking on
a variety of responsibilities, ranging from case investigation
to Treasurer. He was editor of the CUFOS Associate Newsletter
and developed and manned the CUFOS display, allowing him to
record the many reports detailed in this book.
