Jan Aldrich

Jan L. Aldrich was born April 14, 1944, and now resides in Canterbury, Connecticut. He received a B.A. in History from the University College, University of Maryland. Aldrich retired from the U.S. Army with over 25 years in the field artillery and seven overseas tours. He has had 16-years experience in meteorology with the remaining time in intelligence, personnel, and safety positions. In spite of his many overseas assignments, plus the continental United States, Jan has had no significant UFO personal experiences.

Since 1995, Mr. Aldrich has worked full-time in Project 1947, a research effort funded by CUFOS, FUFOR, and MUFON, now called the UFO Research Coalition. He has visited over 150 libraries, universities, archives, museums, and historical societies in 46 states and Canadian Provinces. Jan delved into the MUFON UFO files when he visited Seguin, Texas (former location of MUFON Headquarters).

Over three-hundred contributors worldwide have submitted over 10,000 pages of personal accounts, newspaper clippings, reports, and government documents to Project 1947. In 1996, with the assistance of "America On Line" and other researchers, he created a private E-mail computer network, the Project 1947 E-mail Research List, to share and to encourage serious UFO research worldwide.

Project 1947 continues and welcomes further contributions in the collection, research, and analysis of pre-47, 1947, and early UFO era material, and presentation of results of these efforts. We continue to seek data for the year 1947. We are also looking for material from the 1900-1946 period, the early UFO era 1948-1965, and early scientific and official interest. We are interested in copying significant collections of early UFO material for archive purposes. Leads, hints, references, and resources are most welcome.
