Lucius Farish R.I.P.


A. J. Gevaerd of Revista UFO reported at UFO UpDates that our friend, Lucius Farish, died January 26th, 2012.

Lucius was a UFO buff of the highest order, providing us and many others, via his clipping service and personal contact, sightings and information that would have gotten lost in the backwaters of ufology without his dogged accumulation of newspaper and other media items.

He also was a researcher and writer, contributing information about the 1890s airship sightings and UFO events that the rest of us have used to opine or write about.

We will miss him, actually. He was one of the few good guys in the UFO community.

  • I agree with your general remarks, but your final bit about Lucius Farish being one of the "few good guys" in ufology is wrong. He was one of many, not a few.

    There are a great many good guys in ufology. There always were and always will be. The field is rife with different personalities, different views, different outlooks, differing religions and differing philosophies. There are many with whom you would agree on some things but disagree with on others. There are plenty who have very strange ideas and others still who seem to be wholly out of step with reality.

    But the important point is that all these people (or the vast majority) are still "good guys". And thank goodness for that. The bad guys, i.e. the ones who have abhorrent views or who trick and dupe innocent victims out of their savings are mercifully few in number.

    I like to think that ufologists, like the rest of the population, are mainly comprised of 'good guys', and that the bad ones, i.e. the rotten apples, are a very small minority.

    So it is your use of the term "few" that I am really disputing.

  • Your UFO contacts, Christopher have been much better than mine and some of our Iconoclast colleagues, I'm sorry to report.

    I'm delighted you have had good experiences with the UFO crowd.
