Hub Ogden Collection

The Hub Ogden Collection consists of 82 UFO books, 122 vintage periodicals and newsletters, newsroom teletype transmissions, personal correspondence with noted UFO authorities, handwritten notes, steno pads from interviews, original photographs taken for publication, and news clippings from 45 states and over 20 foreign (to the United States) countries.

Hub Ogden was a city editor and reporter for the Lincoln Journal Star in the early 1950s before transferring to an editing/reporter position at the Omaha World Herald where he continued his career until his death in March, 2015.  Ogden was a journalist of high integrity reporting facts, not his opinions, which was customary in these days.  He investigated cases in Nebraska and some surrounding states and corresponded with scientists on the Condon committee.  Hub kept his interests and opinions private, but thanks to a generous donation from his family, the Hub Ogden Collection is available for review by any participant in Nebraska MUFON, UNO MUFON UFO Society and Omaha UFO Study Group meetings.  As a happy side note, the discovery of this collection was made to Steve Snodgrass, President of the Omaha UFO Study Group via a phone call that was made on World UFO Day, July 2, 2015.

The Hub Ogden Collection is available for research and study in a private reading room during times when organizational meetings are being held.  Any participant in UFO group meetings is encouraged to use this collection for research in preparation for public presentation at future meetings or annual symposia.

The Hub Ogden collection also contains some unique, never before published photographs and documents related to the Ashland, Nebraska case of then Officer Herbert Schirmer of the Ashland Police Department.  Below are some samples from the collection, scanned glossy photos.  The provenance of these documents and materials are exceptional, not having seen eyes for over 40 years, some still remaining in a photo lab envelope.  The collection also includes authentic typewritten descriptions and hand drawn images of the craft and one of its occupants Schirmer saw, within weeks after his encounter.  The discovery of this new evidence may shed new light on this Nebraska case that remains quite mysterious.
