Julian J. A. Hennessey was born in Scotland in 1946. As a British UFO investigator living in London, England, he was Chairman of the European Sub-Committee for NICAP and a member of LUFORO, which later became BUFORA, and a member of the "Fleet Street UFO Study Group". He's worked with noted ufologists J. Allen Hynek (CUFOS), Don Berliner, Sir Eric Bullus and Sir John Langford-Holt. Julian was fond of writing to governments requesting information on UFOs. Here is his letter to the Royal Canadian Air Force asking for such information and for an official statement in 1964.

Official Thanks to Joe McGonagle of Ufology-UK for information on Hennessey.
