  AFOSR NICAP/CSI Roll 4
The NICAP/CSI microfilms were made by the Library of Congress under contract to the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR). This was done as part of a larger bibliographic project under the direction of Lynn Catoe.
  Misc Blue Book Files Roll 1
This microfilm is thought to be information for the Air Force Public Information Office at the Pentagon. It is apparently a compilation of more than one reproduction request. (See Frame 623) Summaries of certain cases here were released to Donald E. Keyhoe in 1952-53 and were used in his book 'Flying Saucers from Outer Space.' This roll was given to Dr. Herbert Strentz in 1968 by Lt. Col. Hector Quintanilla to use in the preparation of his Ph.D. dissertation at the University of Colorado.
  AF Clipping Service Roll 9
In 1952, the newly minted Project Blue Book (formerly Project Grudge) subscribed to a newspaper clipping service in an effort to expand their access to UFO sighting reports. Although initiated just five months earlier, the subscription service was terminated in September because the deluge of reports sent in during this period of unusually high reporting activity was beyond the resources of Blue Book to effectively manage. This problem was exacerbated by the fact that many of the reports provided by the newspaper clipping service were locally published versions of national newswire reports. As with many other microfilm rolls not in the NARA collection, this roll was given to Dr. Herbert Strentz in 1968 by Lt. Col. Hector Quintanilla to use in the preparation of his Ph.D. dissertation at the University of Colorado.
