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….

CECE STEVENS UFOPhoto@aol.com

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.

    WEndelle will be missed by all in ufology who knew this champion of UFO truth against strong opposition long before “disclosure” became fashionable.
    Rest in peace, Wendelle. I salute you!

    Our govt is apparently very unresponsive to the requests/demands of its citizens, but we’ll keep trying. Someday their lies may catch up to them.

    Yes, Col. Stevens was a great man; he was a true expert on UFOs and a man everyone was proud to know.

    Wow! Where was I in 2010 not to hear of Wendelle’s passing? Yes, working 3 jobs. Met him at a college conference. Downloaded 3 of his free e-books of abductions.
    What did I learn? I learned that other planets are homogeneous in population, that Earth has the most diversity of any other planet, though I do recognize there are many others I haven’t had the opportunity to explore via Wendelle. And, it does appear we all experience the same path of control, greed, followed by destruction of the environment, followed by searching for other planets to move to. So it naturally follows that the UFO sightings continues and increases within each evolving planet like Earth. So many thanks to you, Wendelle, for recording your research so diligently in your time here.
    Yes, I would love to hear from you as I know that shedding the body is no more than moving into a higher consciousness.
