Worldwide Ufology Saddened
By Loss Of Bob Pratt
From A. J. Gevaerd
Revista UFO
Bob Pratt, a great UFO researcher and a good friend, died last Saturday, 11-19-5.
This is a very sad note. The distinguished American writer, UFO researcher and journalist Bob Pratt is no longer with us. He served as co-author of Night Siege: The Hudson Valley UFO Sightings, with J. Allen Hynek, and was the author of UFO Danger in Brazil, translated and published here as Perigo Alienígena no Brasil.
It is very probable that no other foreign UFO researcher had more knowledge about the Brazilian Ufology as Bob Pratt. He has been 13 times in the country and was the kind of field investigator who really went deep into our country to where the facts are to be researched. He helped a lot the Brazilian UFO researchers to best evaluate the dramatic incidents of alien attacks in the Northeast of the country and in the Amazon.
Bob's interest in the UFO Phenomena began when working for the National Enquirer, and he was sent to many countries to investigate UFO sightings and ET contacts, such as Argentina, Bolivia, Canada, Chile, Japan, Mexico, Peru e Puerto Rico. Since 1975, he interviewed over 2 thousand witnesses, many of them in Brazil. His passing is a great loss for worldwide Ufology.
Bob wrote articles for several UFO and non-UFO magazines. He was for several years the editor of the renowned Mufon UFO Journal. Last Friday, Bob had a heart attack and by Saturday, he was gone. There will be a memorial service on Friday afternoon at his town, Lake Worth, Florida.
Good bye, my friend. Wherever you are, you will be much closer to the answers you pursued here on Earth.
