Raymond E. Fowler

Raymond E. Fowler (born November 11, 1933, in Salem, Massachusetts) is an author and UFO researcher. He received a B.A. degree in Liberal Arts from Gordon College (Massachusetts). He graduated with honors when he received the degree Magna Cum Laude. His working career was spent working on U.S. government projects, including the Minuteman Project weapons system.

UFO research

Fowler is best known for his UFO investigations including documenting the Betty Andreasson Luca Alien Abduction case which was documented and written about by Fowler. Fowler also investigated and wrote about the Allagash Abductions.

He served as Director of Scientific Investigations for MUFON and authored an older edition of the MUFON Field Investigators Manual. He also served as the Scientific Associate for the Center for UFO Studies.

J. Allen Hynek, who developed the Hynek UFO classification system (see Close Encounter), recognized Fowler as one of the outstanding investigators in the UFO field. "An outstanding UFO investigator ... I know of no one who is more dedicated, trustworthy or persevering," Hynek said about Fowler's investigative work.

Scientific work

Fowler was recognized for his many scientific efforts, and his work in Astronomy, and his private observatory was featured in the Sky & Telescope journal. Fowler also taught off-campus courses in Astronomy and UFOs at his Massachusetts home. He continues to teach amateur astronomy at his private observatory located at his Kennebunk, Maine home.


Later in life, Fowler wrote about being an abductee, and offered this information in his book UFO Testament: Anatomy of an Abductee. During an interview with Rosemary Guiley, Fowler listed some of his abduction experiences. Some of those experiences seem to correlate with other abductee testimony such as Betty and Barney Hill abduction or Betty Luca.

Fowler's claim of being an abductee, and his UFO research, was not always welcomed by family members. His contributions to the UFO field stopped after the publication of The Watchers, in which Fowler acknowledged his UFO abduction experiences. For a brief time, Fowler's own grandchildren were not allowed to visit his home. Things have since resolved and the family has once again allowed visitation.
