Download and read online The Case for the UFOs in PDF and EPUB Born in Indiana, Jessup grew up with astronomical interests. He earned an astronomy BS from the University of Michigan in '25 &, working at the Lamont-Hussey Observatory, he received an MS in '26. Tho he began a doctorate in astrophysics, he ended dissertaton work in '31. He's been referred to in ufological circles as "probably the most original extraterrestrial hypothesiser of the 1950s", & that he was "educated in astronomy & archeology & had working experience in both." Actual evidence of an educational background in archeology is absent from his resume, but Jerome Clark reports that he took part in expeditions to the Yucatan & Peru in the '20s. He achieved note with his '55 book, The Case for the UFO. He argued that ufos represented a mysterious subject worthy of study, speculating that they were "exploratory craft of 'solid' & 'nebulous' character." He also "linked ancient monuments with prehistoric superscience," years before similar claims were made by von Däniken in Chariots of the Gods? & other books. He wrote three further saucer books, UFOs & the Bible, The UFO Annual (both '56) & The Expanding Case for the UFO ('57). The latter suggested that transient lunar phenomenon were related to UFOs in Earth's skies. His main flying-saucer scenario came to resemble that of the Shaver Hoax perpetrated by the sf magazine editor Raymond A. Palmer--namely, that "good" & "bad" groups of aliens were/are meddling with terrestrial affairs. Like most of the writers on ufos, & the so-called contactees, that emerged during the '50s, he displayed familiarity with the alternative mythology of human prehistory developed by Helena P. Blavatsky's Theosophy cult, which included the mythical lost continents of Atlantis, Mu & Lemuria.
