There is no credible evidence in any archive, no documentation or record anywhere, of concerns or reports by anyone about aliens & U.F.O.s at Roswell that pre-date the creation of the Roswell U.F.O. Museum in 1991. The entire phenomenon is an elaborate & quite lucrative hoax, based on the crash of a weather balloon in July 1947, which event anyway took place 130 miles away just outside Corona, New Mexico.
