PROJECT 1947, a 2 1/2 year intensive research effort into the UFO wave of 1947, will accomplish several important tasks:

  • Screen over 5,000 newspapers from all over the world for UFO reports.
  • Search for UFO reports in libraries, historical societies, universities, archives and other institutions in the US and Canada.
  • Compile the reports and data into the most comprehensive study of the 1947 UFO Wave yet done. The first volume of this study, PROJECT 1947: A Preliminary Report, has just been published by The UFO Research Coalition.

PROJECT 1947, with its primary focus on the 1947 wave, will also look forward as far as 1965 and back to 1900 for certain selected significant topics in UFO research. The 1900-1946 period will be examined for UFO-like reports.

You can aid PROJECT 1947 in several ways:

  • Newspapers clippings, scrap book, letters, first hand reports, and official documents are all welcome.
  • Leads, references, hints, etc., for further investigation are solicited.
  • Contributions of copies of early or rare UFO publications and "zines" which contain historical, 1947, or early UFO era reports would be of great help.
  • Translations of foreign material are urgently needed.
  • Most importantly, research in local libraries, historical societies, newspaper archives is always required.
