Prescott and Williams

Harry Drew presents convincing evidence for the 1953 Kingman UFO crash and retrieval story. After talking to locals, scouring for crash sites, and reading newspapers from nearby towns. he concludes that there were actually three crashes and/or controlled landings within a few days time  and within close range of each other.

A still-more startling find was a story reported from Prescott of two strangers found wandering in the woods near where (Harry thinks) the last crash occurred. An unseasonal forest fire had broken out in the forested mountain area and firefighters and sheriff's deputies were sent to the scene.

Finding the two men nearby, they, quite naturally, suspected them of arson. They were held over for questioning at the local jail... but disappeared from locked cells before the interviews could take place.Now Harry doesn't say these men were aliens and their features and behavior was clearly accepted as human.

This potential tie in to the Kingman story adds a new and very Adamski-ish* twist to the Kingman story, one that seems to have slipped from view once Leonard Stringfield initiated the Crash/Retrieval discourse (in 1978).  It has since been accepted almost as a given that alien bodies were recovered from the Roswell Crash. Sometime in the 1990's this mythos expanded to incorporate the recovery of living aliens, one or more of whom were supposedly taken to the Groom Lake Test Facility in 1953.

I can neither confirm nor deny the presence of such aliens, nor in anyway confirm the Adamski story. I can as always, only tell what I know about what Townsend was doing that year.  And I know this because though Townsend did a thorough job of weeding is files toward the end of his life,  he left a handful of few personal letters. Among them are two written to Josephine in the summer/fall of 1953. In the first, sent from the Bush  Company of Cleveland, he tells her that "Prescott and Williams" would be arriving soon, and he was facing his "toughest challenge yet."

The second report comes from Washington, saying that things were happening quickly. Townsend had taken his (unnamed) concept to General Electric and they had directed their Washington office to handle the contract implementation of it. He must have waved fairy dust over Brush and GE as he passed by. As the U.S. Space program bloomed, so did they.  The newly formed Brush Materials fueled quite a Boron boom

As to "Prescott and Williams,"....well I'm not jumping up and down and calling Aliens yet. They could have been FBI men, for all I know since he was still under investigation. The point is that he knew his letters were being read by the Bureau and knowing such, could also have used them to plant mis-information.

He was,after all, a guileful man after all..

*I am reminded that Adamski's book was much discussed in the Brown household the year it was published. Townsend went so far as to have a graphics artist draw up a sketch of the saucer from the picture on the cover. This is one of those memories of hers that I muse over with Linda from time to time. The night the drawing was completed she and her father had twin visitation dreams. Or so they seemed at the time, though the next day Linda recalls seeing burned cirles in thei fields where the craft landed.
