J. Allen Hynek was the pioneer of UFO research. He was one of the heads of the Air Force's Project Blue Book. At first Hynek was a skeptic but when he was asked to be one of the advisors on the Blue Book staff he quickly changed his mind. The reason the Air Force chose him is because of his background in aviation and astronomy. After Blue had been terminated he wrote a book called The UFO Experiance. It talked about his days with Project Blue Book. His book quickly became the most famous UFO book ever. After that he created the organization CUFOS(Center For UFO Studies). CUFOS was a place people could call and report UFO's. If there were an extensive amount of sightings in one area, they would send out a field investigator, to document the report. CUFOS is still around today and better than ever. NICAP, NICAP(National Investigations Comitee on Aerial Phonomena) is an organization very similar to CUFOS. NICAP also sends out field investigators to investigate UFO sightings. NICAP was founded by Major Donald E. Keyhoe. He wrote a book in 1955 called The UFO Conpriracy. I landed on the best seller list at that time.
