"UFO research pioneer, Wendelle Stevens passed today at 4:44 pm in Tucson, Arizona of respiratory failure.

Lt. Colonel (USAF Ret.) Wendelle C. Stevens was one of the world’s best known UFO researchers. Born in 1923 in Round Prairie, Minn., he enlisted in 1941 in the US Army and was transferred to the Air Corps in1942. He served in the Pacific Theater during World War II and subsequently in a classified project in Alaska to photograph and map the Arctic land and sea area, where the data collecting equipment onboard B-29s detected UFOs. Stevens also served as US Air Attaché in South America. He retired from the USAF in 1963 and worked for Hamilton Aircraft until 1972.

Wendelle Stevens was actively involved in ufology for 54 years, first as Director of Investigations for the Aerial Phenomena Research Organization (APRO) in Tucson, Ariz., where he retired. He amassed one of the largest collections of UFO photos and investigated a number of contact cases, published in more than 22 books. His most famous one was the Billy Meier case in Switzerland.

In Dec. 1997 he received an award for lifetime achievement at the First World UFO Forum in Brazilia, capital of Brazil. He was a founder and Director of the International UFO Congress and recently transferred his extensive photo collection, library and archives to Open Minds Production."

Just came across this today. Couldn't find any other source searching google news or google that didn't source (nolink) as well.

You mean he died! I was thinking he passed a red light at 87mph or something!

Oh well, I wonder how long it will be before someone claims to have his exclusive and astonishing "deathbed confession"!

Well, at least he was recognized for his efforts by the UFO community. I wonder what will become of his vast collection of UFO evidence now that Open Minds Productions has it?

And Willy was the best microwave scientist in Germany before taking up American citizenship.
He had to make it on his own for awhile until pressed into service for something secret I'm
