Group Photos Section: Suspected Majestic Personnel

This section consists of a series of photographs and explanations that suggest links to MJ-12 personnel. The military photographs are from the National Archives and show in some cases—such as the photo at the left—clear and proud associations of known MJ-12 members, in this case, Dr. Theodore Von Karman, General Donald Putt and Dr. Robert E. Lombard.

MJ-12 Master List (25k)

The list of personnel tabulated in this document is the result of significant research by our investigation team, which encompassed analyzing all the leaked Majestic documents and related documents from archives with a keen eye toward aggressively identifying the people involved with this immense cover-up. The techniques used to find the information were government document libraries, online searches, FBI file requests, National Personnel Military Records, and UFO literature reviews.

Government Scientists and Personnel

Possible MJ-12 Government Scientists (8k)

These distinguished individuals, people like Einstein, Vannevar Bush, Lincoln LaPaz and Theodore Von Karman have either directly been linked to the Majestic program or by inference are suspected as likely participants. In several cases, the resulting FBI files and archive research have moved suspected involvement closer to clear proof.


Possible Prospects for R&D; Chairman, 1949 (438k)

Retrieved from Truman’s Presidential Library, this three-page memo outlines the people that could and could not be considered for chairmanship of the 1949 Research and Development Board, which Vannevar Bush was the chairman of at the time. These people, even to be considered for the leadership of one of the most central MJ-12 functions—namely reverse engineering—logically already were directly briefed on MJ-12 or were working on classified subsections of the overall enigma. These are experts in their day from prestigious organizations such as California Institute of Technology, Cornell University, Harvard, Dupont, University of Chicago, Columbia, Bell Labs, MIT, Westinghouse, John Hopkins, National Academy of Sciences, and General Electric. Some 55 people were considered or deliberately rejected. The review committee consisted of Vannevar Bush, Dr. Oliver Buckley, Dr. A. M Richards, and Dr. Detlev Bronk.
