The Collison Collection of UFO-Related Newspaper Clippings

UFO*BC would like to thank Ken and Gwen Collison for sending us their collection of UFO newspaper clippings. For almost 4 decades Gwen cut out UFO-related newspaper articles and filed them away. She was even diligent enough to cut out the name and date of the newspaper and attach it to each clipping! It took us some time to scan them in and convert them to text - we hope you enjoy them!
