In this letter, dated February 9, 1976, from Dr. J. Allen Hynek to pioneer physical trace ufologist Henry McKay, Hynek mentions setting up a CUFOS affiliate with Henry in Ontario, Canada.
Four months prior, Hynek contacted Henry requesting he investigate the Suffern Three Mile Lake Incident where a UFO reportedly landed on a road and a creature was claimed to have been seen wearing a one-piece, silver-coloured suit with a white or light-coloured globe on its head.
The letter is dated the year before the release of the Steven Spielberg movie, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”, a term coined by Hynek which inspired the movie.
Hynek handwrites the following note at the end of the letter, “Mimi and I will be seeing you on the 27th”. Mimi was Hynek’s wife.
