UFO Newspaper Headlines 1964-66

The recent death of retired Socorro, New Mexico police officer Lonnie Zamora reminded me of the influence his 1964 UFO close encounter experience had on national newspaper reports of the day. For old times' sake, I'm posting a couple of entries showing some typical headlines, and this one highlights the Gary Wilcox (the farmer who claimed an encounter with UFO entities) incident from New York State (information available on the Web), and the four-state UFO sightings mentioned a few blog postings ago. Argentina UFOs were also in the news, a complement to other international activity. UFO evidence on the ground began to receive much more publicity and, not to make light of this, but even observing UFOs could sometimes require rocket science -- or at least a rocket scientist.
