Roswell 1947 - Official documents on Roswell

FBI memo of July 10, 1947:

The scanned document:


The transcription:

Mr. [blackened out] also discussed this matter with Colonel L. R. Forney of MID (Military Intelligence Division). Colonel Forney indicated that it is his attitude that inasmuch as it has been established that the flying disks are not the result of any Army or Navy experiments, the matter is of interest to the FBI. He stated that he was of the opinion that the Bureau, if at all possible, should accede to General Schulgen's request.

SWR:AJB [initialed]


I would recommend that we advise the Army that the Bureau does not believe it should go into these investigations, it being noted that a great bulk of those alleged discs reported found have been pranks. It is not believed that the Bureau would accomplish anything by going into these investigations.

DML [Special Agent Ladd- signed below typed initials]

(Clyde Tolson)

(J. Edgar Hoover) [handwritten]

I would do it but before agreeing to it we must insist upon full access to discs recovered. For instance in the La case [sic] the Army grabbed it and would not let us have it for cursory examination.
