Episode 92: The Father of Ufology Dr Josef Allen Hynek
Congratulations to Billy for winning the Co-Host contest and we can’t wait to hear his perspective on Stephen Greer’s latest documentary Unacknowledged.
This episode is a Father’s Day special dedicated to the Father of Ufology Dr Josef Allen Hynek.
Dr. Josef Allen Hynek (May 1, 1910 – April 27, 1986) was born in Chicago to Czech parents. Hynek received a B.S. from the University of Chicago in 1931. He completed his Ph.D. in astrophysics at Yerkes Observatory in 1935. He joined the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Ohio State University in 1936. He specialized in the study of stellar evolution and in the identification of spectroscopic binaries.
When Project Sign hired Hynek, he was initially skeptical of UFO reports. Hynek suspected that UFO reports were made by unreliable witnesses, or by persons who had misidentified man-made or natural objects. In 1948, Hynek said that “the whole subject seems utterly ridiculous,” and described it as a fad that would soon pass.
