An Original: Budd Hopkins June 15, 1931 - August 21, 2011

Before there was all the headliners out on the UFO/ET circuit, there were primarily two players in the arena, Budd Hopkins and Whitley Strieber. Whitley speaking from his experiences and Budd investigating the UFO/ET phenomenon. Let's go back to the summer of 1992...


Walking into a local bookstore in Hyannis, Massachusetts there is a posting for a man giving a talk on the UFO/ET phenomenon at a local hotel in the area. IET had moved to this coastal area temporarily for the summer to be closer to the sand and surf. The ET topic was NOT in mainstream anything at the time. So to see this posting in this particular area of New England was a big surprise.


Budd Hopkins June 15, 1931 - August 21, 2011

Nervously, at 20 years old, IET attended the talk. The room had approximately 15-20 people inside. It was a small and quiet gathering. Budd had released his book Intruders and Missing Time a few years prior. Budd revealed pictures to the audience his clients drew of the extraterrestrial beings people witnessed from their contact. At that moment you could have heard a pin drop with the audience. These were some of the first images shown of what the greys truly looked like.


After the talk, I met Budd in his summer home located in the Truro area and was amazed at his stunning artwork as I walked up the stairs to his home. Felt welcomed and secure with his demeanor as well as his interest in helping me put into some perspective my ET contact. After all, this was the first time I discussed these deep personal moving experiences with someone outside of my family circle.


In retrospect, Budd was a pivotal part in helping IET to integrate the ET contact successfully at such an early age. He helped to validate my experiences simply by listening, opening up his home, caring and asking good questions. Budd and IET continued to communicate and he would refer other contactees of a similar age to me, so we could connect. His act of doing this was empowering and nourishing for growth to occur.


Budd also did something rather wonderful, he connected with John E. Mack of Harvard University at the time and informed John of his findings. Budd introduced IET to John and to the P.E.E.R group, Program for Extraordinary Experience Research in 1993.


All of these connections over these past 20 years and all of this work these people have pioneered the way for in the early 90's surely are a large marker in where we stand in understanding this topic today. Budd and John received much criticism at the time and the 10+ years that continued afterwards. They were really the only people in the western world with the courage to meet and connect with us contactees and to take the brunt of the abuse from mainstream media, academia and unfortunately friends and family.


IET is grateful for your contributions Budd, may you rest in peace and a sincere thank you from my heart.


"I’m very sad to announce that Budd Hopkins died today, August 21, at 1:35 pm. Budd had been under hospice care for about three weeks, at his home in New York. The combination of liver cancer and pneumonia led to his death. His daughter Grace Hopkins-Lisle and I were with him almost continuously during these past weeks. He was not in any pain throughout any of the process, and he received the best possible care and loving support from those closest to him. Today he gradually slipped away, and simply quietly stopped breathing. He died peacefully and without any struggle, with Grace, Grace’s husband Andrew, and me by his side. 

Thanks to all of you for being such strong supporters of this extraordinary man, who has contributed so much to our lives, in so many different ways."
