JOHN KEEL: NOT AN AUTHORITY ON ANYTHING

John Keel and Lite

LITE

As readers of Jadoo know, the dedication reads: “This book was written for Lite who lived part of it and suffered all of it.”

John met Lite in Germany; she accompanied him on many of his wanderings through the East, and then joined him in Barcelona, where he finished the book.  There were several passages about her in the first draft, but all were cut by the time it was published.  As John recalled, their romance didn’t survive his return to NYC.  But here they are, looking happy, in Germany in 1954.

  3. John occasionally entertained Fortean groups with his home movies of Egypt in the ’50s; there’s some charming footage of Lite in those too.
