Dear Mr.Arnon:

The subject of UFOs is one that has interested me for some time.

About ten or twelve years ago I made an effort to find out what was in the
building at Wright Patterson Air Force Base where the information is stored that
has been collected by the Air Force, and I was understandably denied this

It is still classified above Top Secret. I have, however, heard that there is
a plan under way to release some, if not all, of this material in the near
future. I’m just as anxious to see this material as you are, and I hope we will
not have to wait too much longer.

Mr. Lee M. Grahan:

Dear Mr.Graham:

First, let me tell you that I have long ago given up acquiring access to the
so-called Blue Room at Wright-Patterson, as I have had one long string of
denials from chief after chief, so I have given up.

In answer to your questions, “one is essentially correct.” I don’t
know of anyone who has access to the “Blue Room,” nor am I aware of
its contents and I am not aware of anything having been relocated. I can’t
answer your question six, in fact, I can’t find anyone who would answer it.

To tell you the truth, Mr Graham, “this thing has gotten so highly
classified,” ecen though I will admit there is a lot of it that has been
released, “it is just impossible to get anything on it.”

I am returning your papers because I know they are of value to you.

Mr. William S. Steinman 15043 Rosalita Drive La Mirada, California 90638

Dear Mr.Steinman:

To answer your questions, I have never gained access to the so-called
“Blue Room” at Wright Patterson, so I have no idea what is in it. I
have no idea of who controls the flow of “need-to-know” because,
frankly, I was told in such an emphatic way that it was none of my business that
I’ve never tried to made it my business since.

I wish you luck on your investigation. I’m one of those people who believe
that with some two billion planets scattered around our universe, there has to
be a couple of more that can support life on it.
