From the publicly available records, there were a couple cases that really grabbed the attention of the people involved in the UFO investigation in the early days, like these: ONE stood for the Office of National Estimates, which was part of the CIA.
If you could run down some of the names on this list, you'd learn quite a bit more about UFOs. This was also the first time I had seen Bill Bundy's name connected with this subject. It was also the first time I have seen J. Edgar Hoover called "Dr" since in fact he was a lawyer.
Admiral Bieri was President Eisenhower's chief of staff. NOTE: This Office did not deal only with UFOs but produced the National Intelligence Estimates (NIEs) on a wide variety of subjects. It was sort of the elite think-tank within the CIA.
O/SI refers to the CIA's Office of Scientific Intelligence, which from 1949 was also heavily involved with the Pentagon's Research and Development Board--and were know that both were very interested in UFOs. In other words, this document is more evidence of the secret, high-level UFO investigation that was running parallel to Project Sign and Blue Book.
These were the people who got the really good UFO reports, including the ones about possible crashed saucers and alien remains, which had been pulled from the regular military channels.
Edward Ruppelt once described them as "scientists—rocket experts, nuclear physicists, and intelligence experts. They had banded together to study our UFO reports because they were convinced that some of the UFO’s that were being reported were interplanetary spaceships", and we know who some of them were.
