Mr. Bryant had a long Civil Service Career. He retired from the Pentagon in Washington DC as a Writer/Editor for the Chief of Public Affairs at the ripe age of fifty-five, in June of 1994.
Mr. Bryant had a life interest in the research of UFO’s. Dad utilized his free time researching government records on this subject, and he interviewed many people along the way. Dad submitted countless written request through – The Freedom of Information Act to the Department of the Army, Navy and Air force for all records the government had on the subject of UFO’s. Mr. Bryant’s collection of government released documents was phenomenal. Dad also filed some “First Amendment lawsuits as the Director of the Washington D.C. office of “Citizen’s Against UFO Secrecy” (from his home in Alexandria, Virginia). He wrote UFO columns for several magazines. He also wrote countless articles about UFO’s and had many articles published by various news outlets of which few are mentioned here:
The Sun Magazine, The Alexandria Journal, The Army Pentagram News, US Magazine, Fate Magazine, Omni Magazine, UFO Magazine, UFO Universe, News Week, and Discover Magazine.
Mr. Bryant also wrote other “letters to the Editor” to top newspapers such as USA Today, the Washington Post. My father had been on numerous Radio talk shows, and The History Channel. He had been interviewed by Foreign Press.
Mr. Bryant had his own UFO Blog – ufoview.posterous.com and a column “LWB Chronicles” upon the website www.ufocity.com.
My father also wrote three books: “UFO Politics at the White House”, “Conjoined: The Story of Rex and Roxanne- the World’s First Androgynous Siamese Twins, a Fictive Memoir”, and “Conjuring Gretchen, The Saga of Virginia’s Preacher-Hypnotist”.
My father’s UFO collection of books, and writings have been sent to Rice University in Houston Texas. The University has planned to open a new library called “Archives of the Impossible” this coming fall. The library will showcase his and other UFO researcher’s collections on this controversial topic.
My father fondly referred to his UFO collection as “His children”. He loved his books and his collection of UFO materials. Dad had many other interests that he often wrote about throughout his life.
