Beverly J. Trout

Beverly J. Trout, an Iowa native, has for the past twenty years, focused on investigations into UFO sightings, abductions, anomalous crop formations, and landing traces. After joining MUFON in 1991, she has served as a Field Investigator, State Section Director and was appointed State Director for Iowa in 1995. Since retiring, Mrs. Trout has been a part time dance instructor. She has adult-age children.

Although her activities in Iowa include public speaking before community, school and private groups on the general subject of UFOs, she has in the past refrained from revealing her own abduction encounters to audiences in her home state. Only during the last twelve years, has she begun to speak about her experiences to out-of-state audiences. Twice a year, Beverly teaches a UFO Enigma class for the Des Moines School District Adult Education program.

Various Iowa media have shown an interest in the UFO subject and Beverly's no-nonsense approach has so far resulted in responsible UFO reporting. She has been interviewed and featured twice on Iowa Public Television's Living in Iowa, when the show highlighted the enigma of crop formations in Iowa. In addition to TV and radio interviews, her work with MUFON has been featured in many Iowa newspapers.

Articles written by Beverly J. Trout on the UFO subject have appeared in the MUFON UFO Journal, Ohio UFO Notebook and Heartland UFO Journal. Even though this will be her first speaking engagement at a MUFON International UFO Symposium, she has previously been a speaker at the Ozark UFO Conference.
