Håkan Blomqvist´s blog: Rosemary Decker

”So glad to learn that you and Dan Fry enjoyed the
years of friendship. He and I met about 1955, when he was instigating the
Understanding groups, and kept in touch almost to the end of his Earth sojourn.
Dan was one of the very few people I ever felt free to tell of my own few
direct encounters with Visitors from afar. All between, January 1958 and 1960:
One very brief face-to-face, two phone calls, and three telepathic contacts… which
were just as clear as the phone calls. (I do not publicise my
encounters). During the last contact (by phone) it was suggested to me that
some day conditions would make it possible for me to write a book on Mars… He
had said, ”Under optimum conditions, it is possible to get a craft from Earth
to Mars in 35 minutes… There´s the title for your book… remember that”.  He placed the emphasis on Earth to Mars , so
I realised that he and his group are hoping some highly ethical and
technologically advanced scientists will be able to pick up enough clues to
build such a craft, sometime soon. Of course, it will involve gravity control.”
(Letter from Rosemary Decker to Gordon Cooper, August 23, 2000).

This very interesting letter from Rosemary Decker to
astronaut Gordon Cooper I found among the 13,000 letters in the Wendelle
Stevens extensive archive at AFU, which I am presently organizing, studying and
scanning. In the collection I have found ten letters from Rosemary Decker. She
was one of the real pioneers in the UFO and contactee movement, with unique inside
knowledge and experiences of what happened in the 1950s and 60s. She passed
away January 22, 2009 at the age of 92. Space and UFO research were her
passion. Her studies of Mars culminated with the publication of 35 Minutes to
, in 2004.

Part of the Wendelle Stevens archive, 13,000 letters

What a pity that Rosemary never published her
memoirs. What a treasure trove that would have been. She now and then wrote
articles for various UFO magazines and lectured at UFO conferences. Even more
tragic is that her archive was destroyed in a fire, as told by Bryan Dickeson
in his article UFO Archives – An Underrated and Vanishing Resource:
bushfires destroyed all of Rosemary Decker’s UFO records, accumulated over six
decades from the early Adamski era to the present. Rosemary was considered “a
living treasure” and resource by MUFON and died
several years ago.”

Rosemary Decker was a close friend of several of the classic 1950s contactees
a.o. George Adamski and Daniel Fry. She had been at the Palomar Gardens home of
George Adamski on that momentous day,
November 20, 1952, when he and some friends returned from the first meeting
with the ”Venusian” in the California Desert. Later she was able to interview,
separately, five of the six witnesses to the encounter. During these years she
also came to know several silent contactees, still unknown to the UFO research
”Sometimes, guests would report their own close encounters. Very few of them
ever publicized their contacts, and so I learned early on that the vast
majority of early contacts were nerver made public, as even today´s are not.
Some of these people found ways to express appreciation and do something to
benefit our troubled planet… This quiet, but profound,  movement is still going on, not only among
those pioneers who still remain with us, but among close-encountered people
(Rosemary Decker, 35 Minutes to Mars, p. 179).
In her book 35 Minutes to Mars she narrates a few
personal UFO observations but that she also had personal contact with one of
the alien visitors was not mentioned and she actually kept this a secret until
2003 in a letter published in Flying Saucer Review:
”I had intended to tell them (Gordon and Eve Creighton – HB) of my meeting (in
1959) with a tall, kindly E.T. whom I saw only briefly, and received two phone
calls from. He said goodbye on Feb. 14, 1960, as he was returning to his home
planet… The people on Mars seem to be genetic cousins of ours. The man I met
was about 6 ft. 4-5 inches, and if dressed like us, would blend into people on
our streets. There are also not-so-friendly E.T.s, but I have an impression
that we receive some protection from them.”
(Letter from Rosemary Decker to Philip Creighton, Flying Saucer Review, vol 48,
no. 3, Autumn 2003, p. 25).

The ten letters I have found in the Wendelle Stevens
archive give further data on Rosemary´s contact experiences, which I now consider
legitimate to publish, after her death. Here a few quotes:

”Now and then I submit an article to a UFO magazine
(and recently to Atlantis Rising). Some are accepted. But I´ve put most of my
spare time and energy the past few years into writing a book on Mars. As a
science hobbyist rather than a scientist I would not attemp it – don´t
feel really adequate. But way back in 1959, a friend and mentor who is very
knowledgeable suggested, to my amazement, that ”some day” conditions would make
it possible for me to write a book on Mars. He offered the title (!), a few
clues towards broadened research – and left! I haven´t seen him since; but now
and again I send a mental message that at last I have written the book. It was
the break-throughs that began with the Viking photos, including the Cydonia
monuments, and the immense water-spout, that got me going.”
(Letter from Rosemary Decker to Wendelle Stevens, April 23-24, 1999).
”Late yesterday a letter arrived from a friend
presently living in Australia, who cherishes you, she included for you the
enclosed pic, an enlargement from a postage-stamp size ´snap´. (It is probably
needless to say it should not be reproduced again.)
(Letter from Rosemary Decker to Wendelle Stevens, August 13, 1988).
 ”… the Visitor
whom I met only briefly, about 40 years ago) suggested that ”some day”
conditions would make it possible for me to do – and he offered the title (!)
and very little other data… Among your small photos one is the Visitor of 1959.
Sent courtesy Millen about 5 or 6 years ago.”
(Letter from Rosemary Decker to Wendelle Stevens and Christine Stevens-Cox,
December 4, 1999).

Rosemary Decker´s interplanetary friend

The photo
referred to and included in the August 13, 1988 letter I have never seen
before. According to Rosemary this is an actual photo of her interplanetary
friend and mentor whom she met in the 1950s. I have been somewhat hesitant
whether I should publish this photo as Rosemary did not endorse reproduction
and our visitors from afar usually do not want to be photographed, for obvious
reasons. But as this gentleman, according to Rosemary, left our planet in 1960
I hope this photo will not cause him or his group any trouble. Representatives
of this benevolent alien group are still around, but keeping a very low profile,
according to some of my correspondents.

There were several reasons why this alien group
terminated their experiment with open contacts around 1960. One was the
psychological effect the experiences had on many contactees, who could not
handle this unique situation and sometimes went off the beam. Rosemary Decker
makes several comments on this problem on personality changes after UFO
”By 1956 I was already a bit alarmed at personality
changes in some of these people (especially those who thereby came into the public
eye) as they displayed the signs of deliberately seeking recognition. There was
a general tendency among them to ”balloon off” on ”ego-trips”, and establish
personal followings, as self-styled ”Authorities” on a great subject on which
in fact they knew little more than the vast majority of the public, the ”un-encountered”.

(Rosemary Decker, letter to Flying Saucer Review, vol 31, no 6, Oct 1986, p.
”We all found Adamski to be genuinely kind and
deeply concerned with the problems the human race has been creating, to its own
danger and that of the planet itself. However when his visitants withdrew, and he
lost all contact with them, he found it exceedingly difficult to accept the
fact, although he had admitted it openly, early on. He soon began to claim
further contacts. Unfortunately his Achilles Heel was an immense ego, which
grew alarmingly as time went on and his fame spread. As friends who had visited
him for years,  we became worried about
his well-being… In all fairness it should be remembered that Adamski was not
the only early space pioneer to undergo stresses greater than they could handle”
(Rosemary Decker, 35 Minutes to Mars, pp. 182-183).
I do not know whether Rosemary Decker was a student
of or acquainted with the Esoteric Tradition but she does make an interesting
comment in a letter 1988, referring to Desmond Leslie. If she was a connoisseur
of the core Esoteric Tradition she would have noted that the worldview and
philosophy presented by the, in my view, authentic contactees a.o. Angelucci,
Adamski, Fry, Menger, Van Tassel, was generally in accordance with the Ancient
Wisdom or science of the multiverse. A fact I have mentioned in several blog
”The reason I´m particularly interested in the Venus
(Omnec Onec, From Venus I Came – HB) book is because my own past experience and
data gathered in the UFO field have led me to understand that many, perhaps
most, of the E.T. cultures advanced beyond our own are not based in this
chemical sector of the physical Universe, but in the ´other side´ – still
physical substance, but less dense, more malleable, and mores stable. This
concept has long been known to esoteric and metaphysical sources. Desmond
Leslie suggested it many years ago, but unfortunately that only made him seem
less credible in the eyes of other researchers, with rare exceptions. I am sure
tht some of the Now-you-see-em-now-you-don´t effects of spacecraft must be due
to shifts into, and out of, densification. Others, of course are due to the
speeds possible to E.T. craft.”
(Letter from Rosemary Decker to Christine Stevens-Cox, February 14, 1988)

Desmond Leslie and George Adamski

Being one of the last pioneers alive, with inside
knowledge of what really happened during the first years of the contactee era,
Rosemary Decker must have felt more and more like a stranger in a strange land
in the UFO movement of the 1980s and 90s. She tried to express some of these
thoughts in a letter 1995:

”Yes, I´ll do my best to take care – it´s true ´there aren´t many of us left´.
And the early era of open friendly contacts has been so debunked, or at best
ignored, by later researchers/encountered people, too much precious data has
been lost. (Early era is among my 3 favourite presentations when I speak at a
conference). Some of the early alledged contacts were real, thanks be. (And
most never publicized).
(Letter from Rosemary Decker to Wendelle Stevens and Christine Stevens-Cox,
December 12, 1995).

Readers of my blog are
aware of that I have advanced the theory that a core group of contactees was
involved in a psychological and cultural influence test in the 1950s. An
experiment implemented by a group of highly advanced, benevolent aliens, earth
based or extraterrestrial, a group with access to “vimana” technology.  Some of the people contacted tried their best
to implement the projects and ideas received by the visitors. Others couldn´t
stand the psychological strain and social stigma of the experiences or invented
fake stories when the real contacts ended. But the cultural impact of this experiment
was awesome, inspiring millions of people, some in humanitarian projects,
others into UFO research and or a personal spiritual quest. There is still much
research left to get a clear picture of what happened during these years. Rosemary
Decker is definitely an interesting and valuable source of information
regarding first hand data from the pioneering decade of the contactee movement.
