Riassunto: Captain Edward James Ruppelt served as project chief of Air Force investigations into UFO phenomena from November 1951 to September 1953. Ruppelt was an inspiration for those who wanted the issue addressed seriously. In honor of his memory, Hall and Connors have written this book. In doing so they have extensively used Ed Ruppelt’s private papers and unedited manuscript held in the capable care of Professor Michael Swords of Western Michigan University and the J. Allen Hynek Center For UFO Studies. The authors also based the book on personal interviews with those who knew and served with Ed Ruppelt. Its pages not only serve as a biography of Ed Ruppelt, but a tribute to his devotion to the United States Air Force and his family.
L'autore: Michael David Hall has previously authored a biography on Indiana Senator Henry S. Lane. In The Road To Washington, Rise of an Indiana Politician, Hall traces the drama that took Lane from the chairmanship of the first national Republican Convention in 1856 to his influence four years later in securing Abraham Lincoln with his party’s nomination. Dozens of magazine articles on Indiana history followed that work. Several of those continued Mr. Hall’s research on the former Indiana senator, taking him from a congressional legislator who worked with Daniel Webster and Henry Clay, to the founder of the Indiana Republican Party, and then on to a powerful Civil War era senator.
Hall holds a B.A. from Illinois College and an M.A. from Western Illinois University in American History. In 1984 he began a museum career at the Illinois State Museum and since 1987 has served as Executive Director of the Montgomery County Historical Society and its Henry S. Lane Historic Home in Crawfordsville, Indiana.
Michael Hall as also authored UFOs: A Century of Sightings by Galde Press; and co-authored Alfred Loedding & The Great Flying Saucer Wave Of 1947.
