Donald Keyhoe & Frank Skully

Donald Keyhoe is a courageous pioneer in the field of Ufology. A Former Marine Major who took great risks to disclose information regarding UFO’s and the governments that concealed their existence. This was looked upon as ludicrous in Keyhoes time.

In October and November 1949, Scully published two columns in Variety, claiming that dead extraterrestrial beings were recovered from a flying saucer crash, based on what he said was reported to him by a scientist involved. His 1950 book Behind the Flying Saucers expanded on the theme, adding that there had been two such incidents in Arizona and one in New Mexico, a 1948 incident that involved a saucer that was nearly 100 feet (30 m) in diameter. The saucers supposedly worked on magnetic principles. In the book, Scully revealed his two sources to be Silas M. Newton and a scientist he called “Dr. Gee.” Sixty thousand copies of the book were sold. Scully was known for his idiosyncratic prose, describing Dr. Gee as having “more degrees than a thermometer” and an alleged crashed saucer in the Sahara as “more cracked than a psychiatrist in an auto wreck.”

Exposure as a hoax
In 1952 and 1956, True magazine published articles by San Francisco Chronicle reporter John Philip Cahn that purported to expose Newton and “Dr. Gee” (identified as Leo A. GeBauer) as oil con artists who had hoaxed Scully.
Behind the Flying Saucers was the only book Scully wrote on flying saucers. He briefly revisited the subject in his 1963 book In Armour Bright, reiterating his belief in the veracity of a 1948 saucer crash near Aztec, New Mexico.
