Ten Most Wanted Magazine Articles on UFOs from the 1950s

Here are ten important magazine articles nominated by Barry Greenwood and Jan Aldrich about UFOs which have yet to be recovered.  These articles could help to shed further light on UFO history, similar to the collection of significant pieces here at Project 1947.  We are looking for about 50 articles from the 1940s to 1980s and will update our Wanted lists for other decades soon.

Anyone who has access to these items or who can provide leads to them, please contact us at:

October or November 1954, but maybe September, 1954 (UFO at Ben Ebeib and summary of other reports)

(Greenwood said this is a right-wing occult magazine, but it might contain a lead)

Personality magazine, 1 January, 1954, Marais, D., "Are We Being Watched," (53:1401),
Bloemfontein, South Africa, pp. 26-28.

Other leads:

Does the UK government have an internal journal on Colony/Commonwealth affairs?  For these years – the 1950s – such publications might contain useful material.

Any articles in Indonesian magazines in the 1950s which we are told did exist, but have not yet seen.
