UFOs and the Elusive George Hunt Williamson

Lecture no. 26 from the course: The Real History of Secret Societies

UFOs and the Elusive George Hunt Williamson

Taught by Professor Richard B. Spence | 08 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

On the afternoon of 20 November 1952, a small group of people milled around a canyon outside Desert Center, California. Among them was 25-year-old George Hunt Williamson, an ex-military man and amateur archaeologist. Consider the possible connection between a desert cult and the UFO craze of the 1950s.

I don't think that the History Channel is worthy of the Great Courses. The topic could be interesting, had it been covered more in the style of The Great Courses. Sadly it reminds me more of History Channel.
