Those wishing to view the limited access collection, which also contains now rare LIFO ac- counts from the 194Os and 5Os, can register by calling Ms. Yeager at 624-6512. Barker, a somewhat contro- versial West Virginia native and long time resident of Glenville made his living booking and showing films. He was also an author, publisher, editor and well known LIFO (unidentified flying objects) buff who died in 1984, leaving some 300 books, 75 groups of magazines and jour- nals, and 30 fling drawers of correspondence on flying sau- cers and related paranormal top- ics. "Flying Saucers Are Real---The Air Force Doesn't Exist." ....amy Barker Barker's interest in saucers began in 1952 when he investi- gated the Braxton County "Flatwoods Monster" sighting, and wrote the report for FATE magazine. In the 1970s he gained a wider audience with his full-book account of the collapse of the Silver Bridge at Point Pleasar t, and the "Mothman" sightings that preceded the disas- ter. For 30 years Barker edited six UFO newsletters, delivered countless lectures, published nu- merous books by other authors, and penned five books of his Own. Some of his newsletter titles were "a2L;ilumml," "12mg Saucer Magazipe" and "Saucer News," which he took over from fellow UFO enthusiast Jim Mosley. Barker's files contain letters from people well known on the UFO circuit. Several files are de- voted to documents obtained piece through the Freedom of In- formation Act. There are Barker files on the Navy's alleged 1943 "Philadel- phia Experiment" in ship invis- ibility using Einstein's unified field theory; "M J- 12" (allega- tions of government collusion with aliens and subsequent cover-ups); the "Roswell" or "Hangar 18" case in which small aliens were reportedly removed from a crashed UFO and perma- nently hidden from the public; government Blue Book projects; the Rendlesham Forest and Socorro sightings---and sightings from many of the 50 states and other nations. The term "flying saucer" was coined by airline pilot Kenneth Arnold, who reported seeing fly- ing disks near Mr. Rainer, Wash- ington.
