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/

    A tale of two historic Philadelphia buildings: One rises from the ashes. The other falls to the wrecking ball.
    On a frigid January evening in 2016, just two weeks into Mayor Kenney's tenure, a historic, 19th century apartment house off Rittenhouse Square erupted in a gusher of flame and smoke. Because the fire had been incubating in an air shaft before anyone noticed, it was unusually hot and spread quickly.
