Project Blue Book went through many evolutions during its 33 year run for the US Air Force's investigation into UFOs. Initially begun in late 1946 under the unofficial title of Project Saucer, it soon morphed into an official investigation under the code word, Project SIGN in late 1948. SIGN sequed into Project Grudge in 1949 and then into Project Blue Book in 1951. These recordings highlight those years.
