Historian and Researcher
Brooklyn, New York native Richard Dolan, who studied at Alfred University and Oxford University, was a finalist for a Rhodes Scholarship, and completed his graduate work in history at the University of Rochester. Prior to his interest in UFOs, Dolan studied U.S. Cold War strategy, Soviet history and culture, and international diplomacy.
His writing credits include: UFOs and the National Security State: An Unclassified History, 1941-1973 first published in 2000, and then republished in 2002 with the subtitle Chronology of a Cover-Up, 1941-1973. This 500 page history provides clear and extensive detail on major UFO cases from the early Cold War era to cover the attitudes and policies toward UFOs by the military and intelligence community, and the fascinating development of the citizen movements to end UFO secrecy.
Dolan went on to complete Volume Two of this historical study in 2009, subtitled The Cover-Up Exposed, 1973-1991, and is now at work on the final volume of his historical trilogy.
Richard has also published articles and spoken at conferences around the world. Among his main themes is the destruction of our political liberties as a result of the UFO cover-up. This includes speculation on the possible nature of non-human entities and what their presence means for our civilization. This has led him to taking a fresh approach to the topic of “Exopolitics” and to further develop unique insights into the practical challenges and opportunities for a true disclosure of the UFO phenomenon.
Richard has done a great deal of television work which includes appearances on numerous documentaries for the History Channel, the BBC, and elsewhere such as the Sci Fi Channel where he was host to a six-episode series titled SciFi Investigates.
Most recently, Richard Dolan has co-authored and released a new book with Bryce Zabel titled A.D. After Disclosure: The People’s Guide to Life After Contact that is an analytical ‘what if’ scenario that discusses the multifaceted impact that would be brought about by the end of UFO secrecy.
