Special Cases – The Long Island File (58): Funny Things

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 6:50 pm

In the middle of August, 1967, John’s primary contactee Jaye Paro is out of town, so “things have been generally quiet.” Then she returns, and has more “funny things” to report. There are also reports of phone hoaxes from ufologists Joan Whritenouer and June Larson, and the puzzle of Gray Barker’s envelopes turning up in Philadelphia. Ivan Sanderson says that the vitamin supplements Apol recommended have made him feel better. He was not, by the way, a transvestite, but did often wear a robe.

  8. It was one of the things that made John disenchanted with ufology. In later years, he kept complaining that the same stories were being told again and again.

  9. […] Interesting, also, is the most recent installment of John Keel’s tribulations, entitled Special Cases–The Long Island File (58): Funny Things . Given what John had been subjected to not long before this August 16, 1967 entry, the mayhem he […]
