1955, LAKEWOOD, COLORADO, USA, LLOYD ARNOLD:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Lloyd Arnold seems to have been one of the numerous of alleged "contactees" of the Fifties, who issued claims after claims, without ever providing a shred of evidence. Most of them betrayed themselves by the ridicule of their claims and by faking photographs; others were so little known and so obviously telling tall tale there it was not really worth wasting time trying to disprove what were just claims.

Not much seemed to have survived oblivion as of Lloyd Arnold. Two ufology catalogues mention that he "had many other sightings and experiences" since 1913 and claims that at age 49, in Lakewood, Colorado, USA, in 1955, he "had an out of body experience" in which "he was taken aboard a UFO" and examined by the crew, described as humans of normal height, appearance, and normal skin darker than normal skin. One of them spoke English, the other a tongue he has never heard.

It seems that like other contactees he made a trip in the saucer "to a place where the humanoids where gathered", and told some newspaper that it was not a dream or hallucination, and that "I was fully conscious and knew that I could stop it if I choose... but I have an immunity to fear."

It also seems he started a "Denver UFO Society" and built a model-UFO.

Narratives:

[Ref. mc1:] MIKE CHRISTOL:

Ufologist Mike Christol once published a list of his ufology videotapes for sale of donation, and the list mentions a videotape in color of an interview of Lloyd Arnold by Ken Demary, of Denver, Colorado, made on 7/10/1988, 1 hour duration.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Lakewood Colorado, in 1955, at an unknown time, Lloyd Arnold, 49, was in his home in Lakewood when he had an out of body experience in which he was taken aboard a UFO and examined by five occupants of normal height and appearance, although they had darker than normal skin. One spoke English, the other a tongue he has never heard. He recalls acceleration "like a jet, but more severe," when he was flown to a place where the humanoids where gathered. "Call it a dream or hallucination, if you will. It was vivid and real. I was fully conscious and knew that I could stop it if I choose... but I have an immunity to fear." His first UFO sighting was in 1913, and he has had many other sightings and experiences.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Humcat, case 1955-27 quoting a newspaper source.

[Ref. in1:] ON THE INTERNET:

A text circulating on several websites, with no dates or clear origin, headlined "how to build a UFO", claims to provide tips to build your own "UFO". The text claims that "bell-shaped UFOs" can be built by following "some insights into how they are built" provided by "George Van Tassel, George Adamski, and others who have made contact with the occupants of these bell shaped crafts."

The text indicates that "one of the early Denver UFO society past presidents, Lloyd Arnold, designed, built and displayed a table model of a roundhouse with a central staff relative toward a vehicle of this nature."

Some versions of the text mention that "Portions of this information are from the Archives of the Denver UFO Society."

Points to consider:

The witness is obviously one of the numerous of alleged "contactees" of the Fifties, who issued claims after claims, without ever providing a shred of evidence. Most of them betrayed themselves by the ridicule of their claims and by faking photographs; others were so little known and so obviously telling tall tale there it was not really worth wasting time trying to disprove what were just claims.
