Sunday, July 6th • 1 p.m. • Convention Center Nancy Lopez/Robert Goddard Room • Lecture – The Presidents and UFOs: A Secret History from FDR to Obama
Larry Holcombe’s introduction into the world of Ufology came in the late 1950’s after reading two of Major Donald Keyhoe’s books; Flying Saucers are Real and Flying Saucers from Outer Space. A year later, after watching Keyhoe debate an Air Force officer on the old Armstrong Circle Theater, and seeing Keyhoe being censored when he deviated from the prepared script the Air Force forced on the show’s producers, Larry was convinced the Air Force was covering up knowledge of flying saucers, later to be changed UFO’s. Those events started a fifty plus year avocation into the study and research of the UFO phenomenon.
In 2006 he took early retirement and started his first novel, The Great River Disclosure, a thriller based on the government cover-up of an extraterrestrial presence visiting earth. His second novel in the Disclosure Trilogy, Satan’s Angel, was released this past fall in eBook format.
In researching background for the novels he became intrigued by a 1970’s NBC-TV documentary, UFOS: Past, Present & Future. The documentary endorsed the theory that some UFOs were extraterrestrial and astonishingly the documentary seemed to have the support of the government. Larry was able to locate the writer/co-producer of the documentary, Bob Emenegger, and Emenegger provided him with some remarkable background information on the making of the documentary that involved the Nixon Administration. From this background the idea of a work of non-fiction began to shape built around the documentary, the Nixon Administration, and the involvement of all modern presidents in the UFO phenomenon. A detailed book proposal was developed and in the fall of 2012 the rights to “The History of Modern Presidents and the UFO Enigma was purchased by St. Martin’s Press. Since that time the title was changed to The Presidents and UFOs: A Secret History from FDR to Obama. The book is now in the design and editing process at St. Martin’s and will be released in early 2015. It will be available in hardcover, electronic ebook and AudioBooks. Detailed information on the book and pre-release orders from Amazon can be secured at the author’s booth on the main floor of the museum. His novel, The Great River Disclosure, will be available at his booth.
Larry has done a number of radio interviews and most recently with Pat Schouten host of The Fringe Radio Show on KTKK AM630, Salt Lake City. He continues to believe that the Roswell Incident was the defining event that has shaped the governments handling of this historical phenomenon. His lectures this year will include “Six Indisputable Facts that Roswell was an Extraterrestrial Event,” and, “The Presidents and UFOS: A Secret History from FDR to Obama.”
