A few more names:
R. DeWitt Miller was a follower of Charles Fort and had released Forgotten Mysteries in 1947 before the flying saucers hit. Also, Tiffany Thayer,
editor of the Fort magazine, "Doubt" was collecting UFO sightings reports.
Before that, there were some newspaper writers that investigated the airship mystery, but I don't have any names handy.
Mead Layne of Borderland Sciences Research Associates was advocating visitors from space in 1946.
Ray Palmer was promoting the Shaver Mystery and proposed that it was connected to Fort's material, and was collecting newspaper clippings of strange
things in the sky, claiming they were visitors from space.
Don't forget the "ghost rockets," there were people looking into those as well.
