Joseph Ferriere, an American UFO researcher, edited the "Controversial Phenomena Bulletin" and its continuation under the title "Probe" in the 1960s.

A friend of Joseph Ferriere, Paul Eno, has commented that Joseph L. Ferriere (1939-2012) "was a respected broadcaster, UFO researcher, writer, publisher and a true gentleman".

In addition to various interesting articles, these magazines included a considerable number of photographs of UFO researchers and witnesses from that era (including material from August C Roberts).

Matthew Riot has commented that "Controversial Phenomena Bulletin" has "some some awesome old art".

I have been trying to contact members of Joseph Ferriere's family for the last two or three years with permission requests to make this material available online. Yesterday, his grand-daughter kindly let me know that I can go ahead.

Matthew Riot has helpfully scanned 5 issues of "Controversial Phenomena Bulletin". That publication is rather rare (with the AFU's huge archive in Sweden only having 2 issues, which it has also kindly scanned). The AFU has also scanned 8 issues of Joseph Ferriere's subsequent "Probe" magazine.  


All the best,
