The Rumors


There have been rumors and conspiracy theories for years that President Dwight Eisenhower met with alien visitors in 1954 in a hastily arranged trip.



As the story goes, he was quickly called away from his scheduled routine to see an alien craft and its wreckage, and exchange pleasantries with beings from beyond the stars. The location for this alleged clandestine meeting was Edwards Air Force Base.



The basis of this story was that during the week of February 17-24, when he was in Palm Springs, California, he did disappear on the evening of Saturday,



February 20, 1954. When the press learned that Ike was not where he was scheduled to be, they demanded an explanation.


When the press did not get their answer quick enough, rumors began to spread that the President was either very ill, or worse, had died.


Hastily Called Press Conference To counteract these dastardly rumors, Press Secretary James Haggerty summoned the press to a quickly called conference, and told them that Eisenhower had suffered a broken took while eating a chicken dinner, and emergency dental repair was affected by a local dentist.


Sounds reasonable, right? But, later in a 1979 interview when it was discovered that the dentist's wife knew nothing of this visit, the rumors gained new momentum, and continue even to this day.


Now, you would think that the dentist would have told everyone he knew about treating the President, especially his wife. I would have immediately called home from the office, and said, "Hey, you'll never guess who I have in the chair?"


Also fueling the fire was that records at the Eisenhower Library, which kept all the documents relating to his health, showed no dental work for the month of February, 1954.


Also, many "thank you" notes were sent out to those who aided in the Palm Springs visit. These include the usual: florists, those who offered to play golf with Eisenhower, people who met his plane, and the minister who presided over the Sunday service the President attended, among others. However, no dentist is mentioned.


This ongoing rumor has been lately addressed on Larry W. Bryant's blog site, FOIA Request to CIA re Film Footage of Eisenhower's Inspection of an Alien Spacecraft and Its Deceased Occupants. Bryant is a well known columnist for UFO Magazine.
