KATHLEEN MARDEN 2016 BIO
Kathleen Marden is a leading UFO and abduction researcher, author, and lecturer, known around the world for her cutting edge exploration of alien contact phenomena and the UFO cover-up. Her educational background in the social sciences has shaped her interest in scientific ufology.
She earned a B.A. degree in social service from the University of New Hampshire and participated in graduate studies in education while working as a teacher and education services coordinator. Her scholarship led to acceptance into the Alpha Kappa Delta sociology honor society. During her fifteen years as an educator, she innovated, designed and implemented model educational programs. She also held a supervisory position, coordinating, training and evaluating education staff.
Her interest in UFOs dates back to September 20, 1961, when her aunt, Betty Hill, phoned her childhood home to report that she and Barney had encountered a flying saucer in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. A primary witness to the evidence of the UFO encounter and the aftermath, Kathleen has intimate knowledge of the Hill’s biographical histories, investigation files, and scientific interest in their sensational experience. This led to a journey of exploration, leaving no stone unturned, to find answers through scholarly work, investigation and social research. Today, she is recognized as the world’s leading expert on the Betty and Barney Hill abduction.
She is associated with the Mutual UFO Network, as its Director of Experiencer Research, and the Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters, as an advisory board member and consultant to its research subcommittee. She is the recipient of MUFON’s 2012 “Ufologist of the Year” award. She makes it clear that the opinions expressed by her are her own and do not necessarily reflect the views of the organizations of which she is a member.
Kathleen has written three books, Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience, and Science was Wrong, with nuclear physicist/scientific ufologist Stanton T. Friedman, and The Alien Abduction Files, with Denise Stoner. Her 4th book will be released this fall. In addition to this, her essays have been published in several additional books. In 2012, she spearheaded a research project, with Denise Stoner, to identify little known commonalities among experiencers. She is currently working on two new research projects: MUFON’s Experiencer Survey and FREE’s Experiencer Questionnaire.
Her articles have been published in the MUFON UFO Journal, Open Minds, Alternate Perceptions and FATE magazines and on several websites. Kathy has given expert testimony on the Discovery, History, National Geographic, and Destination America channels and on several documentaries.
