AB Parthenon (The Parthenon Co. Ltd) was the first publisher of UFO-related contactee literature in Sweden during the 1950s and 1960s. The company is still in existence, but now owned by Carl-Anton Mattsson & Dan Mattsson. They still publish UFO literature, most recently, in the summer of 2009, Håkan Blomqvist‘s book “Främlingar på vår jord” (Strangers on our earth).
Recently, Carl-Anton found yet another box of old Parthenon papers, inherited from the original company in the mid-1980s. The find includes documents on the founding of the company, written proceedings of the company’s board, the complete set of company shares, and the shareholder’s book. Very important papers about the first and only company owned by Swedish ‘ifologists’!
