Stevens, born 1923 in Round Prairie, Minnesota, was a leading ufologist for more than 50 years and the creator of one of the largest private UFO photo archives known. Stevens' interest in the UFO phenomenon was kindled by his experience as an Air Force pilot in the Arctic after the end of World War II, where he encountered mysterious radio transmissions while working as part of a classified project to photograph and map the area using new technology. Stevens began his own investigations after retiring from the Air Force and in 1979 published the 4-volume UFO… Contact from the Pleiades, which detailed the extraterrestrial experiences of Edouard "Billy" Meier in Germany and established Stevens' reputation in the world of Ufology. Over the following three decades, Stevens amassed his collection of UFO photographs from around the world, researching and writing articles about the encounter stories they illustrated and appearing as an expert at UFO conferences internationally. From his home in Tucson, he was the Director of Investigations for the Aerial Phenomena Research Organization (APRO) and a founder of the International UFO Congress. In total, Stevens authored or co-authored more than 22 UFO-related monographs. Colonel Stevens received a lifetime achievement award at the First World UFO Forum in Brasilia, 1997. He passed away in Tucson, Arizona, in 2010. This collection of material was acquired directly from a storage locker owned by Stevens. An associate of Stevens, John Hughes, kept up on the the rental fee for the locker after Stevens passed away. In February of 2018, Hughes also died, and the locker was acquired by a single bidder, who then transferred ownership of the material to Back of Beyond Books, in Moab, Utah, where it currently resides. ; B&W & Color Photographs .
