The National UFO Historical Records Center is Born

“Our mission is to collect, preserve, and provide historical UFO materials
to the general public and interested parties. With the accumulated data, we
hope to assist with serious research endeavors and aid in an accurate
chronicling of UFO/UAP history for present and future generations regardless
of belief or non-belief in the subject.”

Who: An assemblage of the leading U.S. UFO/UAP Historians and Archivists
led by David Marler that includes: Jan Aldrich, Rod Dyke, Barry Greenwood, Dr.
Mark Rodeghier, Rob Swiatek, and others.

What: The establishment of the largest historical archive dedicated to
the preservation and centralization of UFO/UAP information in the United
States.

Where: Physical archive to be based in the Albuquerque, New Mexico
area.

Why: Our mission is to collect, preserve, and provide historical UFO
materials to the general public and interested parties. With the accumulated
data, we hope to assist with serious research endeavors and aid in an accurate
chronicling of UFO/UAP history for present and future generations regardless
of belief or non-belief in the subject.

Context: In recent years, there have been successive U.S. government
disclosures acknowledging the UFO/UAP subject as a genuine phenomenon.
Subsequently, multiple U.S. military, intelligence, and scientific agencies
have started adopting programs to study the subject such as NASA and the AIAA.
In addition, within the civilian sector, there has been an influx of new
researchers into this field of inquiry. Many academics and scientists are
included in this group.However, most of these parties do not have access to
the vast array of historical materials and data sets in the hands of civilian
U.S. UFO/UAP historians and researchers.

In conjunction with this new-found respectability regarding the UFO/UAP
subject is the growing need to create more space for these historic materials.
Individual U.S. researchers and historians have amassed large collections of
data over the decades. These have been home-based archives scattered
throughout the country. The National UFO Historical Records Center has been
created to gather and centralize this historical UFO data in the United States
into a singular freestanding facility. With the physical holdings residing in
the Albuquerque area, these will be made available to those who visit
in-person while efforts will be underway to actively digitize these materials
for global accessibility.

A vast array of UFO files and collections are already destined to be added to
the growing inventory during the course of the next 1-2 years. Currently, the
collection consists of materials from over 25 countries derived from 70+ U.S.
and foreign individuals. Some of the largest U.S. collections serve as the
cornerstone for this center. This includes diverse materials from The Center
for UFO Studies (CUFOS). We are also interested in anyone wanting to donate
historical UFO/UAP materials to us.

Efforts are underway to acquire a building to house this national treasure and
make it readily accessible to researchers,academics, and the general public.
Funding and donations will be vital to making this vision a reality. Thus, the
creation of this non-profit organization to facilitate achieving that goal.

We look forward to working collaboratively with similar free-standing
worldwide UFO/UAP archives and those within the university setting. Together,
we can preserve the history and, perhaps, gain insights into the mystery.
