Swedish ufologist Staffan Stigsjöö died on March 6, 2009. He was the author of three Swedish UFO books, the Tefatsfolket (‘Saucer people’) series, published in 1973, 1974 and 1977, respectively.
Shortly after Staffan’s departure from this world his sister Anna Linder contacted Clas Svahn and offered AFU the complete collection. It was picked up by Clas in the company of Håkan Ekstrand. On July 13, the collection finally arrived at AFU. It includes more than 400 phenomena-related books of which, surprisingly, some 150 turned out as new titles for our library, mainly books on parapsychology and similar themes. Our librarian Ingrid Collberg is hard at work with cataloguing.
The collection also held the minutes of 201 meetings of the Alingsås Ufological Society, of which Staffan was the primus motor, and some 35 folders of Swedish clippings, unfortunately, though, not the most well kept collection, but we will still search it for clippings we might have missed out on.
We also got three book cases to supplement the 60+ book cases we have before at the library. Staffan’s family are to be praised for their initiative to donate this valuable collection to AFU without any monetary compensation whatsoever. The material will be well kept here in the memory of one of the most hard-working Swedish ufologists of the 1970’s.
