The Christmas Card

This is a Christmas card that was sent to pioneer physical trace UFOlogist Henry McKay from his good friend Dr. J. Allen Hynek. Date unknown.

There are two images. The first image is the front of the card, the second image is the inside of the card.

Hynek coined the term “Close Encounters”, and was the astronomy consultant to the U.S. Air Force’s UFO projects including Project Bluebook. Inside the card (which is the second image) Hynek wrote: “Merry Christmas! How’s this for a close encounter of the third kind! Mimi and Allen. Hope to see you soon.”

Mimi was Hynek’s wife.
