Ever wonder if the National Archives and Records Administration has records of aliens and UFOs in our holdings? If so, you’re in luck! Our colleague Joseph Gillette, an Archivist on a cross-training assignment in the National Archives History Office, wrote a series about the Air Force’s Project Blue Book, as well as its precursors, Project Sign and Project Grudge. The purpose of these projects was to investigate the increasing number of unidentified flying object (UFO) sightings throughout America and determine their nature and any potential threat. This blog posted, entitled “INVASION! (of privacy),” is the first in a three part series which explores the Project Blue Book and discusses records of UFOs in the holdings of the National Archives! You can find Part II, “UFOs: Natural Explanations,” and Part III, “UFOs: Man-Made, Made Up, and Unknown,” on the Pieces of History blog here: www.prologue.blogs.archives.gov https://prologue.blogs.archives.gov/2018/04/09/invasion-of-privacy/

We are grateful to curator Bob Skiba and archivist John Anderies for celebrating their birthdays this year with online fundraisers to support the John J. Wilcox, Jr. Archives at William Way LGBT Community Center. We are fortunate to have such passionate, creative, and diligent stewards of Philadelphia's LGBTQ+ histories in Bob and John. Our heartfelt thanks go out to all who contributed. Together, you raised over $2,000 for the archives(!), helping us collect, preserve, and share your one-of-a-kind stories. Want to know more about the Wilcox Archives? You can follow their lively Facebook page above; visit us now in person for an exhibit on LGBTQ media (on view daily in the archives gallery); see a special exhibit at the Liberty Bell Pavilion on Gay Rights and the Courts (more about that here: http://www.waygay.org/pr-sofe); or check out our new online exhibition here: https://sofe.wilcoxarchives.org/. We look forward to making (more) history with you this year!

Every year Americans celebrate the Fourth of ...

Every year Americans celebrate the Fourth of July in a variety of ways, big and small. In order to celebrate our nation’s 200th anniversary of Independence in 1976, the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration (ARBA) was established by an act of Congress to stimulate, coordinate, schedule, and facilitate the planning and implementation of projects, events, and activities to celebrate 200 years of American life. Events were held around the country including in the cradle of American democracy, our home city of Philadelphia! You can learn more about the Bicentennial celebration in Philadelphia by reading this Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia article: http://philadelphiaencyclopedia.org/archive/bicentennial-1976/ You can also learn more by researching the records of ARBA’s Philadelphia Regional Office here at the National Archives at Philadelphia. Check out our online catalog (www.catalog.archives.gov) and make an appointment to view our holdings at the National Archives at Philadelphia by calling (215) 305-2044 or emailing philadelphia.archives@nara.gov.

    Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia
    Planners of Philadelphia's Bicentennial celebration in 1976, aware of the incredible success of the 1876 Centennial as well as the flop of the 1926 Sesquicentennial, hoped to showcase the growth and ambitions of the city while also commemorating the two-hundredth anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.
