Lecture – Roswell: UFOs and the Presidents

HolcombeLarry 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 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 was released in 2009. His second novel in the Disclosure Trilogy, Satan’s Angel, was released in 2013 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 UFO’s 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 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 St. Martin’s Press purchased The Presidents and UFOs: A Secret History from FDR to Obama. Noted nuclear physicist and lecturer, Stanton T. Friedman, wrote the books foreword. Other noted UFOlogists contributed to the book.
Larry has spoken to a number of UFO research groups and state MUFON chapters. He has had a number of radio and other media interviews including The Paracast, Fringe Radio Show, Fox Radio and Open Minds UFO Radio.
