George Hunt Williamson: A Contactee Profiled
There's a new post up at UFO Digest from Sean Casteel that delves deep into the controversy-filled life of one of the most enigmatic of all the 1950s Contactees, George Hunt Williamson.
You can find the article at this link, which digs into countless issues, including the matter of the man's "government file" and what officialdom thought about him and concluded about him - matters I detailed in a lengthy paper that can be found in the recently-republished edition of Williamson's book, Road in the Sky.
"George Hunt Williamson, one of the major players on the UFO contactee scene of the 1950s, continues to be a shadowy, hard-to-define personality in the years since his death in 1986. He embodied a great deal of the contactee era’s optimistic faith in Space Brothers as the saviors of our planet and would be crucial to the formation of a large portion of accepted New Age doctrine. But he also had ties to a neo-fascist organization and was investigated by the FBI as a possible communist propagandist. He claimed degrees in anthropology that could never be verified, even while he traveled throughout the Americas collecting legends and stories from various indigenous peoples about visits from those same Space Brothers and their help in establishing functioning tribal communities. He would change his name to suit the occasion, sometimes calling himself Brother Philip, or by the Serbian moniker Michael d’Obrenovic."
