Donald Edward Keyhoe (1897-1988) was an American writer and UFO researcher. Born in Iowa, Keyhoe became a military aviator after finishing college; however he retired in the early 1920s following an accident on Guam. He then turned to writing after managing Charles Lindbergh's wildly popular coast-to-coast tour in 1927; his work proved popular, earning Keyhoe a respectable living. In the early 1950s Keyhoe became interested in UFOs, founding the National Investigations Committee On Aerial Phenomena (NICAP), a private organization which attempted to press the government for fuller disclosure of UFO phenomena.
