Deaths Elsewhere

March 23, 2004

Roy F. Craig, 79, who worked on the nation's largest, most systematic investigation of flying saucers, died of cancer Thursday at his 186-acre La Boca Ranch, a former Indian trading post in Ignacio, Colo.

Dr. Craig was chief field investigator for The Colorado Project, the official government search for scientifically verifiable evidence of the existence of unidentified flying objects.

The three-volume Condon report that Dr. Craig co-authored debunked mysteries about outer space, yet he said UFOs did get people to think about the possibility of extraterrestrial life.

Robert Snyder, 88, an Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker whose subjects included Michelangelo and his own father-in-law, futurist R. Buckminster Fuller, died Sunday at his Los Angeles home. Mr. Snyder won an Academy Award in 1950 as producer of The Titan: Story of Michelangelo. He was nominated again in 1958 for the insect documentary The Hidden World.
