I haven’t been able to write as much as I’d like but I did get some research done.
I’m writing about the Men in Black in Strangers & ALIENS, mostly to cover the occult angle in the Its All Demonic Anyway, Right? chapter. I ended up scrapping that section because it distracted too much from the point of that chapter.
I found a lot of material on Barker’s college life and post-collegiate employment until 1952. I also found out that he had a 4F disqualification from the military due to being “psycho-neurotic.”
Currently working out the extent of his relationship with William Moore et al., of Roswell/MJ-12 fame.
Also mapped out Barker’s family tree, mostly to see who was around during significant milestones in his life
