Organized Harassment of Individuals (6)

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 12:25 am

We continue with John Keel’s private dossier on “Organized Harassment of Individuals.”  The third part describes direct physical harassment, often by people impersonating military officers, salesmen, or missionaries.  He doesn’t name any of the witnesses; I suppose because he’s looking for patterns, either for his own clarification or that of other researchers, and not marshaling evidence for a general audience.





  1. The one thing I’ve always liked about John Keel’s work: he never seemed to jump to conclusions about anything. I’ve read a lot of so called “UFO books” over many years and I’ve now sworn them off (except John’s). Another writer might have reported similar information as John, but then invariably they would go on about how these cases “prove” such and so. John kept track of his data, collated it and reported it. Sure he had theories and ideas, who wouldn’t? Guess my point is, when you look at these occurrences and see larger patterns, its even more strange and weird that it appears at first glance. John was so far ahead of everyone else, it’s astonishing. Thanks for maintaining this website.

  2. This time I’ll simply agree with Mr. Carlson. Well said.

  4. As I recall, John mentioned the Flatwoods monster in a couple of his books. But I don’t think he really investigated it; it happened in 1952, while he was busily turning out radio scripts in Frankfurt. I haven’t seen anything in his files about it, but if anything turns up, I’ll certainly post it.

  5. Didn’t Gray Barker figure heavy in the Flatwoods investigation? I know my dad was leaving Union Carbide late the night of the Flatwoods incident. He said he saw what he described as a very slow moving meteor crossing the sky that evening. He read the reports soon after. Ever come across any correspondence between John and Gray? He ever mention him to you? IIRC, a John did mention Gray in Mothman book. It’s about time for my yearly run through it, anyway. I always wondered if they were friends. They seemed to be very different in their ideas and their approach.

  6. John and Gray were certainly on friendly terms, and often in contact during the Point Pleasant flap. John often mentioned him, and was exasperated by the hoaxes he and Moseley cooked up: what he called their “happy horseshit.” I posted Gray’s peculiar “Grunt” letter to John elsewhere on this site.
