About the Project Blue Book Archive The Project Blue Book Archive contains tens of thousands of documents generated by UnitedStates Air Force investigations from the early AMC period through to the end of Project Blue Book.In addition to individual UFO reports the Archive includes administrative files that provide insightinto Project Blue Book operations. These administrative files include correspondence, formalreports, status reports, AFOSI investigative reports, and various public statements and briefingmaterials.The primary source of Archive documents are microfilm rolls made available to the public by theNational Archives (NARA) including a set of uncensored rolls first discovered at NARA in 1998. Inaddition, several rolls of microfilm created during the operation of Project Sign are also included inthe Archive. About Project Blue Book Project Blue Book was the code name of the U.S. Air Force’s UFO investigation. Strictly speaking,this name applies only to the time period beginning in March 1952 and ending with the close of investigations in January 1970. Less formally, the name is used to connote the Air Force’s entireperiod of investigations, which began inside the Air Materiel Command at Wright-Patterson AFBwithout a specific code name on June 30, 1947. The first named investigation was Project Sign,which was formally initiated on January 26, 1948. This name was changed to Project Grudge onFebruary 12, 1949, and again to Project Blue Book on March 25, 1952. Though it may appear tobe a continuous operation, these UFO investigations were subject to shifts in the Air Forcepriorities and by internal Air Force politics.  A, ã*-' . ãV;--f QUsstfteaifon cancelled -or changed to.i- AUTH: 'RcBe^r J. and Grartle Hate STATUS REPORT NO. 1 ãit.', .....ã;: > r ,' .ã<.'ã!ã,ãã ãã;,- irv'iVih, *»,ã.«»'ã-ã {(.'

Overall StatusMach of the work done on Project Grudge has been devoted to the reorganization of the project as given in the Project Initiation Form A-3, ..dated 22 October 1951.The old Project Grudge and Project Sign files have been reviewedand sorted. Cross-indexing and tabulation of the old files has beenslow due to a lack of clerical help, but it is hoped that this situationvill be alleviated in the near future. It is contemplated that all of the sightings of unconventional flying objects will soon be cross-indexedaccording to size, color, location, etc., so that as much statistical dataas possible will be available. It is believed that it may be possible to determine several general characteristics of the sightings from the massof data that is on file at ATIC.Contacts have been established with all agencies that may be ableto assist in Project Grudge such as Air Weather Service, Flight Service,high altitude balloon projects, O.S.I., etc. There is still some doubtas to the channels that should be used in contacting some agencies but these will be clarified in the near future.Two major difficulties have arisen and they are (1) the time elementand (2) obtaining transportation. In regard to the time element, it has been found that in many instances one or two months will elapse beforeATIC receives word on an incident. It is very possible that many incidentsare never reported. As far as can be determined, this is due to two main reasons: a. Letters pertaining to the procedures and responsibilities in re-porting incidents were dated September 1950. Since that time there has been an influx of new and recalled officers and changes in personnel;consequently, a great number of people are not aware of the requirementsof Project Grudge. Incidents that are several months old are finallyreceived at ATIC after having forwarded through several commands. b. It is believed that the general feeling in some instances is that the Air Force is not too interested in this project and reportingsuch incidents is unimportant. It is the opinion of ATIC that regardlessof personal beliefs as to the srcin of the objects, the task of deter-mining, if possible, what these objects are has been assigned, and shouldbe carried out.It is believed that the revision and re-cixo*6Lation of the AF letterpertaining to Project Grudge will alleviate the problem of delay in re-ceiving reports. The Collection Division, Directorate of Intelligence^was requested to revise and re-circulate this letter on 25 October 1951. I UNCLASSIFIED
