Anders Kjellson is the grandson of Henry Kjellson (1891-1962). Anders’ father Lennart Kjellson (1919-2010) recently left this existence and large parts of Henry’s and Lennart’s collections have both been donated to AFU, through Clas Svahn, who collected the material in Herrljunga on November 26, shortly after arriving home from the collection tour to the UK.
Lennart has governed over Henry’s collection and parts of the books and the sources Henry used when he wrote his books on ancient technology in Egypt (in the early 1950’s long before anyone had heard about Erich von Däniken) are now in preservation with AFU (the upper left half shelve in the picture on the right).
Henry Kjellson is also well known in Swedish ufology as one of the leading members of the 1946 ghost rocket committee, within the Swedish military forces. It does not seem that the collection we have received so far has any leads to Henry’s thoughts on this early UFO phenomenon but more material may come forth later on.
Lennart Kjellson himself a professional M.D., was interested in a number esoteric and scientific subjects including Egyptology and the Turin shroud, which he wrote about. His interests are reflected in the book collection now donated to AFU.
