A Letter to Charles Bowen, November 16, 1966

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 7:20 pm

In a sort of postscript to his last letter, John tracks down Alex Theoharous and his wife (whom he doesn’t name), and convinces them not to pirate Bowen’s book The Humanoids. Bowen was grateful, as you can see here. As we can see from John’s letter, Bowen’s remark about Frank Edwards was prompted by Alex Theoharous’s defense that he and his wife were only doing what Edwards had done.

This is the last letter I’ve found from John’s correspondence with Charles Bowen. After this, I plan to post John’s notes on the “Reeves code,” and then some material about his experimental films, and then some of his correspondence from the 60s with Jim and Coral Lorenzen, Ivan Sanderson, and Lynn Catoe. There’s more to come!

Prompted by a call from Jim Lorenzen (of APRO, the Aerial Phenomena Research Organization), John investigates a plan to sell copies of Bowen’s book The Humanoids at an inflated price. Bowen’s reply is here; I only found this letter later. John is quite the detective here!

John responds to Charles Bowen’s letter of September 16. He asks that some information be deleted from his report on the Erie incident, sends the bio Bowen had requested, discusses the current state of ufology, and mentions a recent spate of “hairy-being” sightings.
