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,
and safety positions. In spite of his many
overseas assignments, plus the continental United States,
Jan has had no significant UFO personal experiences.
1995, Mr. Aldrich has worked full-time in Project
1947, a research effort funded by CUFOS,
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
three-hundred contributors worldwide have submitted over
10,000 pages of personal accounts,
newspaper clippings, reports, and government documents
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.
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.
