At 86+ years young, his health was failing and very poor, and he
will be greatly missed as he was loved by so many … in AND out of the
field of UFOlogy. Wendelle was one of the first “this-is-how-to-report-it”
trendsetting correspondents in the often-times bitter, contentious,
quarreling field of UFOlogy.
May his soul rest in PEACE with the rest of his FRIENDS, relatives and
colleagues who have already passed on and are awaiting to greet him in
the implicate order of the unfolded universe in the fine material world….

Wendelle C. Stevens is a retired U.S.Air Force pilot-turned-UFO investigator and researcher. Stevens’ research began in 1946 when the Army Air Force assigned Stevens to Wright Field as part of a large technical review program of captured Nazi air technical documents. Stevens was then assigned to Alaska during the time the United States began extensive surveillance and mapping missions of Alaska and the north polar regions, as part of Project Ptarmigan. During that time, Stevens was in direct oversight of anamalous UFO sightings reports and film footage made by Air Force crews.This began a lifelong interest for Stevens in uncovering the truth regarding UFO activity.
Stevens was born and raised in Minnesota, and enlisted in the Army shortly after high school. He graduated from the Lockheed Aircraft Maintenance & Repair School, Aviation Cadet Training and Fighter Pilot Advanced Training as a very young 2nd Lieutenant in the US Army Air Corps.
After that he attended the first Air Corps Flight Test Pilot School at Kelly Field, where he learned to fly all the aircraft of the Air Corps at the time, as well as a few US Navy aircraft. During his long career in the military, one of his assignments was the supervision of a highly classified team of technical specialists who were installing hi-tech data collecting equipment aboard the SAC B-29s of the Ptarmigon Project – a research project which was photographing and mapping every inch of the Arctic land and sea area. This equipment was designed to capture, record & analyze all EMF emissions in the Arctic, photograph all anomalous phenomena, and record all disturbances in the electrical and engine systems of the aircraft – looking for external influences caused by UFOs. The data was then couriered nightly to Washington.
Unable to possess any of this information for himself, Stevens, upon return, began his own research and collection effort, eventually amassing the largest private collection of UFO photographs in the world. He began to publish reports on the events, and wrote many illustrated articles for many UFO publications. Disenchanted with the lack of detail on contact events reported in books and journals of the time, he began preparing detailed reports of his own investigations.
Stevens has collected more than 4,000 actual UFO photographs, and has written and co-authored over 30 books on extensive UFO contact cases.
He continues his investigations at his own expense, still seeking the elusive answers to the many questions raised by this phenomenon. Stevens has been a Director of the International UFO Congress since its inception, as its original founding member.
