Back Into the Public Vaults, National Archives
Posted by Laurie Frost on September 3, 2010
Back into the Public Vaults of the National Archives today, this time selecting for artifacts, maps and charts, and textual records for an eclectic collection ranging from stamps showing a skull-like profile of Hitler to an Air Force department’s chart illustrating reports of UFO sightings in the summer months of 1952.
Abraham Zapruder Camera. ARC Identifier 305171
Who, you want to know, is Abraham Zapruder? He brought his home movie camera along on November 22, 1963 when he went to watch President John F. Kennedy’s motorcade through Dallas, and he ended up filming the assassination of the president.
.This chart, Appendix I to Project Blue Book Status Report No. 8, was produced by the Technical Intelligence Division of the US Air Force. It shows the frequency of unidentified flying object (UFO) reports during the months of June, July, August, and September 1952. ARC Identifier 595542
