Browsing: The Stanton Friedman Collection

Stanton Friedman was a renowned nuclear physicist and professional ufologist, celebrated for his extensive work and research on the subject of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Born on July 29, 1934, in Elizabeth, New Jersey, Friedman devoted much of his career to the scientific investigation of UFO phenomena, earning a reputation as one of the leading figures in the field. He held degrees in physics from the University of Chicago and worked for several years as a nuclear physicist on projects for major corporations like General Electric, Westinghouse, and McDonnell Douglas. However, his profound interest in UFOs led him to leave his full-time career in 1970 to focus on ufology. Friedman was particularly famous for his work related to the Roswell UFO incident of 1947, advocating the hypothesis that it involved a crash of an extraterrestrial spacecraft. He authored several books and frequently appeared at conferences and on television to discuss UFOs. His steadfast commitment to applying scientific rigor to the study of UFOs helped gain the subject greater respectability. Stanton Friedman passed away on May 13, 2019, leaving behind a legacy as a pioneering and dedicated researcher in the field of ufology.
