Harold Dahl’s tragic June 21, 1947 UFO sighting over Puget Sound is the launch pad for the origins of what we now know as the “ “Men in Black.” Relying upon FBI, Army and Air Force records, speaker Steve Edmiston will explore the controversial legacy of “The Maury Island Incident,” including the detailed investigations by a courageous Tacoma-based FBI Special Agent. The program examines the Maury Island Incident’s tragic aftermath, the involvement of J. Edgar Hoover, and the appearance of, and warnings by, history’s first alleged “man in black.” Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of Dahl’s sighting and story, Steve will discuss the making of the film “The Maury Island Incident,” the commercial and cultural significance of Dahl’s original men in black story, and how others have sought to claim that they were first to encounter these iconic, mythological characters.
