Meet Dr. Gee

You will want to read the entire two-part article about Scott and Susan Ramey's conclusions after ten years of investigation of the  Aztec (New Mexico) UFO crash.   For now let's just start with this bit of quote from Frank Scully's 1950 book on the topic. Keep in mind that the mysterious Dr. Gee was rumored to be the researcher called in to investigate the crashed craft.
I met a man of science whose contemporaries rated him the top magnetic research scientist in the United States. He had more degrees then a thermometer, and had received them from such diverse institutions as Armour Institute, Creighton University, and the University of Berlin. He is the scientist called Dr. Gee.

He had been assigned to direct a division of top scientists during the war. Their task was to knock submarines out of the seven seas . ... They worked out of two laboratories and had a budget of one billion dollars at their secret command.
Townsend had told Linda that one of his duties, while on his 1938 active duty cruise, was to oversee the loading of several tons of British gold aboard a US bound Navy ship.  Linda has also been told that some of the gold was to fund the establishment of his (Brown's) private laboratory which would carry out stepped-up defense  (and communications) research. 

Continuing to quote from the linked article:

In point of fact, there was indeed a division of scientists involved in anti-submarine warfare during the war years—it was "Division 6" of the "OSRD..."

"Division 6" (sub-surface warfare) of the OSRD was headed by an individual that very much fits the description of Dr. Gee, or at least one of the collective. [Scully would later say that Dr. Gee was a blended character, made of a select group of scientists.] Its primary facility was the "Airborne Instruments Laboratory" (AIL) of Mineola, New York. Moreover, he indeed directed a division of "magnetic scientists" as stated in the book.

One of the devices developed by "Division 6" was the "Magnetic Anomaly Device" (MAD), the origins of which were borne by the "oil industry," more specifically in the exploration thereof. After the design was completed, GSI (Geophysical Service Inc.), the predecessor of "Texas Instruments," mass-produced them for the war effort.
Townsend's service records that show that he was working in  magnetic minesweeping  research and design throughout 1939-41.  On March 29, 1941, travel orders directed Lt. Brown, USNR, to visit the National Geophysical Co. of  Morgan City, LA and Dallas, TX for the purposes of examining "equipment to be used in conjunction with mine sweeping problems and to investigate manufacturing facilities."

And what does this prove? Feel free to draw your own conclusions.
