Stan Gordon

Stan was born on October 30, 1949 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Stan was trained as an electronics technician who has specialized in the area of radio communications. He has worked for over twenty five years in the advanced consumer electronics sales field.

Stan's interest in UFOs and other unusual happenings began at age 10.

Since 1965, Stan has been conducting on scene investigations of mysterious encounters in Pennsylvania. He has been involved with the examination of thousands of UFO and other strange reports from across the Keystone State. During the late 1960's, Stan acted as a telephone report sighting coordinator for the UFO Research Institute of Pittsburgh. Stan has been internationally recognized as an authority on the subject of the UFO and Bigfoot phenomena. He gained prominence from his first hand investigation into the well remembered 1973 Bigfoot/UFO series of sightings and encounters which occurred in Pennsylvania. This outbreak brought worldwide attention to the subject, and was a major news story in the media for several weeks.

Stan was the Founder and Director of the Pennsylvania Association for the Study of the Unexplained. He organized PASU in 1981 to serve as a statewide clearinghouse for these reports. PASU was an all volunteer research unit which ceased operation in November of 1993. Stan had previously founded the Westmoreland County UFO Study Group in 1970, which was expanded to the Pennsylvania Center for UFO Research in 1975. Stan was also the Pennsylvania State Director of the Mutual UFO Network for many years. MUFON is the largest international UFO research organization now based in Denver, Colorado. Stan was the first recipient (1978) of the annual MUFON "Meritorious Achievement in A UFO Investigation Award."

Since November of 1993, Stan remains active in this field as an independent researcher and investigator, and as time permits. Stan also continues to investigate information concerning the controversial UFO crash/retrieval case which occurred on December 9, 1965 near Kecksburg in Pennsylvania. As the primary investigator, he has continued delving into the case and found additional witnesses and facts. The case has provided him world-wide TV exposure, stating with NBC's Unsolved Mysteries on September 19, 1990.

Stan has conducted an adult education course on the subject of UFO's at the Westmoreland County Community College. In addition, he has presented numerous lectures on these subjects to professional and civic organizations and he has received many requests from schools, colleges, and organizations both locally and nationally for similar presentations. Stan has been listed in the Directory of Experts, Authorities, and Spokespersons, formerly called the Talk Show Guest Directory. He is also listed in The International Who's Who in UFOlogy Directory.

Stan has been featured in dozens of news stories about his investigations. He was featured in an April 29, 1982 Associated Press national news story. Over the years both the AP and UPI news services have carried news items on cases that Stan has investigated. Stan was featured as the cover story of Pittsburgh Renaissance Magazine in March of 1974. Numerous other magazines and publications have done feature items, or have recognized Stan for his research efforts. Included among these are the Pittsburgh Press Roto Magazine, The Greensburg Tribune-Review FOCUS, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Sports Illustrated, The National Enquirer, The National Observer, and The Globe.

Stan is also quite often invited to appear on radio and TV talk shows as a featured guest. Among the dozens of stations he has appeared on are KDKA radio and TV in Pittsburgh, WBAL Radio in Baltimore, Maryland, WFAR in Dallas, Texas, WIND in Chicago, Illinois, KFRC, San Francisco, California, and WBZ, Boston, Massachusetts.

Stan has also appeared on programs such as UFO's Tonite, hosted by Don Ecker, and 21st Century Radio, with Dr. Bob Hieronimus. He has also been featured on numerous radio and TV news shows including: KDKA, WPXI, WTAE, and KQV in Pittsburgh. He has also been featured on some syndicated TV shows such as Evening Magazine for CBS, and PM Magazine for NBC. In 1982, Hollywood television producer Alan Neuman who has done such shows as Kraft Theater, The Academy Awards, and Meet the Press, came to Greensburg to film Stan for a proposed series on the Unexplained to be filmed worldwide.

Stan has written numerous articles on the unexplained covering topics from UFO's to black panthers seen in Pennsylvania. Most of these articles have been in publications devoted to this study. Dozens of articles which Stan has written have appeared in such publications as SKYLOOK, The MUFON UFO Journal, Pursuit, and the GATE.

Stan has been recognized for his paper published in the 1974 MUFON UFO Symposium Proceedings titled "UFO's in Relation to Creature Sightings in Pennsylvania." This paper has been quoted extensively by other researchers worldwide. Many books have given Stan credit for his research. Among these are: Creatures of the Outer Edge, by Clark and Coleman; UFO Dynamics, by Dr. Berthold E. Schwarz; The Bigfoot Casebook, and Alien Animals, by Bord; Bigfoot, by Slate and Berry; and Bigfoot On the East Coast by Rick Berry.

Stan was the Editor of the PASU Data Exchange, a newsletter covering current cases of phenomena being investigated in Pennsylvania. The newsletter was basically an exchange publication, and for keeping researchers, the news media, and law enforcement agencies aware of current activity. Stan is a regular feature columnist for The GATE, a magazine covering many types of strange occurrences, published quarterly.

In 1998, Gordon released a 92-minute video documentary on the Kecksburg Case, which he produced titled Kecksburg The Untold Story. This was the winner of the 1998 EBE film award as the "Best Historical UFO Documentary" by the 8th Annual International UFO Congress in February 1999.
