Former Progress Editor Dies

Bob Pratt, the editor of the Daily Progress in the 60s, died last week at the age of 79. He started as a reporter in the 50s before heading up the paper from 1960-67, when he moved down to Florida to work at the Miami News. His life took an interesting twist in 1975, when he was assigned to write a story about a UFO sighting in Wisconsin. After investigating what he assumed would be another nutcase, he thought there was something to it. He spent the rest of his life interviewing witnesses to sightings, writing UFO Danger Zone and assembling a vast website on the topic. Bryan McKenzie has the story in today’s Daily Progress.
