Bruce McAllister papers, 1981-1991

Identifier: 2001-008

Scope and Contents

Author Bruce McAllister researched the subject of stress-induced extra sensory perception (ESP) and the possibility of a CIA project rumored to have existed during the Vietnam Conflict in which possible uses of mind control were explored. He also gathered accounts of ESP experiences from numerous Vietnam veterans and contacted various government agencies (American and Vietnamese) for information. This research became the basis for the writing of the novel Dream Baby, the short stories "Little Boy Blue," "Songs From a Far Country," and the un-produced screenplay "Skywatchers." The collection also includes maps of the areas, heavily annotated by McAllister.

There is a Library of books attached to this collection, please see the External Documents for a link.
