University of Colorado Publishes Repository of Government UFO Reports

That’s the title of this short piece over at Top Secret Writers by Gabrielle Pickard. She writes:

The repository covers a range of US Government sources and reports from the Central Intelligence Agency, the Department of Defense, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National Archives and the National Security Agency.

The UFO repository also includes international sources from the Ministry of Defence in the UK and the National Archives UFO Files, which are a collection of British government reports from 1981 to 1996.

There is also a handful of nongovernmental sources, including the Project Blue Book, a footnote database of the digitized material from the Project Blue Book and the NTIS CU, a database of UFO-related reports held by the Information Library.

The non-government sources also include the Declassified Documents Reference System CU, a database of declassified federal documents which contain full-text access to report on sightings and government investigations on UFOs.

The University of Colorado will forever be associated with UFOs because of the Condon Report of 1968, named after physics professor Edward Condon. The report was the product of the Condon Committee, a UFO research project funded by the U. S. Air Force from 1966-1968. Condon achieved infamy in ufology for opining that the study of UFOs wouldn’t produce any major scientific discoveries before the study even began.

The Condon Report was subsequently analyzed by serious UFO researchers. For example, in 1987 Dr. Peter Sturrock, for many years a professor of applied physics at the Center for Space Science and Astrophysics at Stanford, wrote a 26-page review of the report in the Journal of Scientific Exploration. Sturrock pointed out a number of problems and inconsistencies in the report.
