Stanton Friedman Is Out Of This World Exhibit

Stanton Friedman Is Out Of This World Exhibit

An exhibit dedicated to the incredible life and career of world renowned Ufologist, Stanton Friedman (1934-2019), opened at the Fredericton Region Museum on June 26, 2021.

Born in New Jersey, Stanton Friedman moved to Fredericton in the early 1980s where he lived with his wife and daughter. He was the leading authority on UFOs and alien abductions and was called “the father of Roswell” – a reference to the famous alien crash near Roswell, New Mexico.

A dual citizen, Stanton travelled extensively from his home base in Fredericton to far flung places across Canada, the US, Europe and elsewhere. He wrote or co-authored nearly one dozen books, appeared in hundreds of television and radio documentaries and talk shows including Larry King Live, Sally Jesse Raphael and even Unsolved Mysteries. Stanton gave presentations on UFOs to more than 600 colleges and more than 100 professional groups the world over. He lectured in 10 provinces, 50 states, and 19 countries, appeared twice at the United Nations and provided written testimony to Congressional hearings.

Stanton received numerous Lifetime Achievement Awards and was inducted into the UFO Hall of Fame in Roswell, New Mexico. His work was celebrated by the City of Fredericton when it declared August 27, 2007, Stanton Friedman Day. When he died in May 2019, his obituary appeared in the New York Times.

The Stanton Friedman Is Out Of This World Exhibit features artefacts and archival documents on loan from the Friedman family. It also contains never before seen archival documents from his vast collection donated to the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick in 2018-2019. The exhibit was supported with a grant from the City of Fredericton, Arts, Culture and Heritage grant program and the York Sunbury Historical Society.
