Bruce Maccabee, PhD
Dr. Maccabee studied physics at Worcester Polytechnic
Institute in Worcester, Mass (BS) and then at The American
University, Washington, DC (MS, PhD, physics). In 1972 he
commenced his long career at the Naval Surface Warfare
Center, presently headquartered at Dahlgren, Virginia. He has
worked on optical data processing, generation of underwater
sound with lasers, various aspects of the Strategic Defense
Initiative (SDI) and Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) using high
power lasers and is presently involved in a program related to
Homeland Security. He has been active in UFO research since
late 1960s when he joined the National Investigations
Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) and was active in
research and investigation for NICAP until its demise in 1980. He became a member of MUFON in 1975
and was subsequently appointed to the position of state Director for Maryland. In 1979 he was
instrumental in establishing the Fund for UFO Research and was the chairman for 13 years.
His UFO research and investigations (which are completely unrelated to his Navy work) have included
the Kenneth Arnold sighting (Jun 24, 1947), the McMinnville, Oregon (Trent) photos of 1950, the Gemini
11 astronaut photos of September, 1966, the New Zealand sightings of December, 1978, the Japan
Airlines (JAL1628) sighting of November 1986, the numerous sightings that occurred in the area around
Gulf Breeze Florida between 1987 and 1997 (a period of time that includes his own sighting in Gulf
Breeze in September, 1991), the Mexico City video of August, 1997, the Phoenix lights sightings of
March 13, 1997 (the videos obtained at about 10 pm) and many others. He has also done historical
research and was the first to obtain the flying disc file of the FBI (the REAL X-Files!).
Dr. Maccabee is the author or coauthor of about three dozen technical articles and more than a hundred
UFO articles over the last 30 years, including many which appeared in the MUFON Journal and MUFON
Symposium proceedings. He wrote the last chapter of The Gulf Breeze Sightings by Edward and
Frances Walters (Morrow, 1990). He wrote the UFO history chapter of the book UFOs: Zeugen und

The Proof, (Avon Books, 1997), he is the author of The UFO/FBI Connection (Llewellyn Books, May,
2000) and the author of the novel, Abduction in My Life (Granite Publishing, 2001). He is listed in Who’s
Who in Technology Today and American Men and Women of Science.
The January/February 2005 issue of the peer-reviewed Journal of the British Interplanetary Society
(JBIS) published an article titled Inflation-Theory Implications for Extraterrestrial Visitation. Dr. Deardorff
was the lead author along with Dr. Bernard Haisch, Dr. Bruce Maccabee and Dr. Hal Puthoff. The paper
reassessed the ETH in light of the new physics and included references to the posture and actions of the
U.S. Air Force.
Dr. Maccabee is one of the most interviewed researchers in the entire field including print, radio and TV
media since 1978. His published books include: UFO/FBI Connection: The Secret History of the
Government’s Cover-up (2000), UFOs are Real: Here’s the Proof (1997), Could UFOs be Real? (1991)
