|Art Champoux has been an UFO investigator since 1964. He has worked with Ray Fowler, Walter Webb, John Keel, a lady that he can not name, and several different UFO groups. In the 1960s he was with APRO, CAPER, NIACP, then when APRO went out he was with NICAP and then APRO, Now he is with MUFON. The world of the paranormal has always fascinated him as even as a small boy he had some eerie happenings. His Great grandmother was a spirit medium so maybe he has inherited something. He is a hypnotist and has written for several publications and his leanings are much like John Keels. He beleives there is an ultra force, not from outer space, but much like John's and even Jaques Vallees' contention...we are but one dimension out of many that reign on this planet.
|Raymond Fowler: Best UFOlogist
of the 20th Century

Raymond Fowler is one of the best UFO investigators/researchers, authors and personalities of this century. I know because I worked with him on some significant UFO sightings and cases. This man is meticulous. Nothing gets past him. He used his talents and time to search out the best cases in New England and far beyond the state's borders.
He worked for the government in United States Air Force Security Service. He went out and gave a huge amount of time to his passion: the study of UFOs.
He was unrelenting; his passion for the truth was as great as if not greater then Agent Fox Mulder of the X-Files TV program.
Ray did not get paid for his investigations but he didn't care. His passion for the subject brought him into a world that was controversial and filled with enigmatic happenings. Due to his experience and first hand knowledge Ray began publishing books based on his cased studies. This books, although popular with UFOlogists did not make him a rich man but did offset some of his experiences.
Ray appeared on TV shows and debated Donald Menzel ((April 11, 1901 - December 14, 1976) was an American astronomer and astrophysicist. He was one of the leading astronomers of his era, and also earned notoriety as an early skeptic of UFOs as an extraordinary phenomenon.) and others also.
He had a top-notch team of people that supported his quest to finding the truth of UFOs in New England. His expertise brought him to testify before the US House Senate Committee.
His many books describe the intensity of the UFO enigma, from his first investigations and his own personal experiences as an abductee. His views changed regarding UFOs and their occupants as he learned more in his own personal life and was empathetic in helping others as they struggled with their own enigmatic paranormal experiences.
On more then one occasion he helped me with my own investigations into the unknown. Along with Walter Webb, Ray and myself thoroughly investigated entities seen in an UFO over an airport in Haverhill, Massachusetts. At other times I would go to his Wenham house and ask him questions or ask his advice on sightings I had in the 1960s and 1970s. Ray was a very patient man. He was caring and was an intense investigator that separated the wheat from the chaff.
If you want to follow the most intense journey of one of the most famous UFO investigators life of all time you must read and understand the scientific mind of Ray Fowler. I know I have reviewed his books here. But to know the man is an interesting story in itself.
Ray is the best of the best. Ray is married and has several children. Now he enjoys the relaxation earned over over a lifetime of work and of using his personal observatory in the back yard in his rural home in coastal Maine. Although, he is well educated he constantly searches for answers and enjoys looking at the stars.
