      This Christmas card was on a pink piece of paper. I found this in my great-uncle’s files (Henry McKay UFO Archives). There is no date mentioned anywhere on the card. It is from Dr. J. Allen Hynek to my great-uncle Henry McKay, signed Mimi and Allen (Mimi was Allen’s wife), and says “How’s this for a close encounter of the third kind?”. The man depicted in the card is Hynek. See the front of the card above.

This is the back of the card. It says “How’s this for a close encounter of the third kind?” and is signed Mimi and Allen. Mimi was Hynek’s wife:
