The Republican party's 1964 candidate for President. Mason. UFO kook.
"I certainly believe in aliens in space. They may not look like us, but I have very strong feelings that they have advanced beyond our mental capabilities."
"It is true that I was denied access to a facility at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, because I never got in. I can't tell you what was inside. We both know about the rumors ( concerning a captured UFO and crew members ). I have never seen what I would call a UFO, but I have intelligent friends who have."
"I think some highly secret government UFO investigations are going on that we don't know about, and probably never will unless the Air Force discloses them."
"I put faith in the reports of the Air Force, Navy, and commercial pilots who reported instances where a UFO would fly near them, right off their plane's wing, and then just zoom away at incredible speeds."
"I remember the case in Georgia in the 1950s of a National Guard plane going after a UFO and never returning. And I recall the case in Franklin, Kentucky, when four military planes investigated a UFO. One of them exploded in midair and no one knows why."
