A Slow Death in Washington (Part Five)
So far, I've not found any other NICAP last-gasp reminders, but this membership application -- progressing at last from drab black and white to at least a hint of attention-getting color -- arrived in December of 1973. Despite a few worthwhile publications issued from time to time in addition to NICAP's UFO Investigator, it was all downhill from there. Eventually, Dr. J. Allen Hynek's Center for UFO Studies purchased NICAP's voluminous files (the complete series of the UFO Investigator are available on compact disc via the Center, see link) for a tidy sum as NICAP disintegrated, so at least these documents found a good home. In the real world, however, funding, time and temporary storage space always loom as potential annihilators of one's best intentions.
Be sure to visit the nicap.org site for much more about NICAP and some of the best UFO evidence ever documented.
