About Rick:

Rick Hilberg attended his first organized UFO meeting in December of 1958 and instantly became fascinated with the mystery of the “flying saucers” as they were then called. He became active in several small groups in the years after that and eventually decided to edit and publish his own newsletter on the subject in 1962. That little publication, first done on a spirit duplicator, would turn into his “original” “UFO Magazine” which was professionally printed and considered one of the best UFO publications during the 1960s. “UFO Magazine” ran articles by many of the leading ufologists of the time, and covered the full spectrum of the UFO scene for its many readers.

In 1970 Hilberg sold his interests in “UFO Magazine” to Allan Manak and Ron Pelger of “Flying Saucer Digest” and joined the staff of FSD as an associate editor. Hilberg became a co-editor of the publication in 1990 when its then long time editor Robert S. Easley stepped down. Upon founding editor Allan Manak’s untimely death in 1999, Hilberg took over the editorship of FSD and continues to publish it on a quarterly basis. FSD remains one of the last traditional print “ufozines” still in existence. FSD is now in its 208th issue, and still going strong after its initial founding in 1967.

Rick has also published several other newsletters over the years including “UFO Magazine News Bulletin” and “Weirdology” magazine to name but two. Since 1997 Hilberg has issued at least one booklet addressing a specific aspect of the UFO or fortean mystery, the latest of which has just been released; his “Rick Hilberg’s Book of Weirdology”.

He is proud to have been one of the founders of the Congress of Scientific Ufologists ( which later became called the National UFO Conference ) back in 1964. This was the first serious attempt to hold annual conventions that stressed rational and objective UFO claims and theories.

Rick is a board member of MUFON of Ohio and serves as its Historian.
