Newspaper: ‘UFOs – keep an eye on the horizon’ 1970’s

The following newspaper article is from the “Whig-Standard” newspaper, which is based in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Date unknown, however, it is estimated that it might have been published in the 1970s or 1980s because the article says that Henry was investigating for 15 years at the time. Although Henry had an interest in UFOs since the 1950s, he officially started investigating in 1965. So 15 years after 1965 should put this article in the 1980s. However, to confuse things even more, this article also states that the UFO Research Centre was formed “last year” — which would put this article in the 1970s instead. Furthermore, this article also states that Henry was 50 years old at the time this article was published. Seeing as how he was born in 1927 then this would put the published date at 1977. So, therefore, we can only reasonably assume that this article was published in either the 1970s or 1980s, most likely the late 1970s. Albeit, a complete search at the newspaper archives for the Whig-Standard has not been done as of yet, which would surely confirm the exact publish date. Also, keep in mind that journalists/newspaper reporters can get info wrong..

Also please note that the article says that Henry was a “teacher, broadcaster and electrician” — he was NOT a broadcaster, and he was an electrical engineer. He was a teacher in the sense that he taught UFOlogy courses at high schools and universities. For the life us we have no idea where the journalist got the idea that Henry was a broadcaster.

This article interviews Henry McKay and Iris Owen about the “UFO Research Centre”. Iris was the wife of Dr. A. R. G. Owen. Mr and Mrs. Owen also ran the TSPR (Toronto Society for Psychical Research), which operated the infamous Philip Experiment.
