NICAP's UFO Investigator and Selected NICAP Documents
CUFOS acquired the files and other material of NICAP in the early 1980s as that organization was failing. We also have a complete collection of NICAP's UFO Investigator, the flagship publication of that organization. Altogether 162 issues were published, from July 1957 to June 1980. You can download each issue in a separate printable PDF file.
In addition to the UFO Investigator, also available are the following publications released by NICAP: the Affiliate Newsletter, UFO Quarterly Review, Special "Confidential" Bulletins, "The Year of the UFO, A Special Calendar of Historical Highlights", and finally over 300 select NICAP documents (jpg format) giving over 1600 pages in this collection.
In these documents, you can read the original correspondence of T. Townsend Brown, Donald Keyhoe, as well as other NICAP staff, and some of the NICAP founding documents. These document NICAP's struggles and crises and finally NICAP's transfer to CUFOS. As an added bonus a complete copy of the very rare UFO's Secrecy Danger's & Evidence 1960 document sent to Congress is included. As UFO researcher Brad Sparks has stated, "It's a massive collection of impossibly difficult-to-obtain internal NICAP documents and all of its outstanding publications, many of which remain unexplored because of their scarcity. This is a must-get collection if you want the inside story of UFOlogy from the beginning."
A very brief overview of NICAP is available on Wikipedia.
"The single most influential UFO organization in history, NICAP, expired more than two decades ago. Now its remarkable background of publications and selected historical documents is once again available through the Center for UFO Studies, custodian of NICAP's archive, by way of a unique CD that opens the door back to those exciting days of military and congressional involvement in UFO research" Barry Greenwood, Clear Intent
