UFO sightings have been reported as early
as 1400 BC, and Cook County is one of those famous places allegedly visited by
aliens. A local Cook County woman had caught the attention of Dr. James
McDonald after she claimed of witnessing a UFO in the sky. Her case was one of
several sightings featured in U.S. Air force national study “Condon Report.”
The effort of scientist McDonald to locate
the woman led to a correspondence with Adolf “Ade” Toftey of Cook County News-Herald
This is the story of searching the local
woman, featuring original letters from the Cook County Historical Society
This feature is produced by Martha Marnocha
and a collaboration between the Cook County Historical Society and WTIP.
Special appreciations to Erik Hahn as the
voice of scientist James McDonald.
