Thomas Townsend Brown


T. T. Brown allegedly was involved in the Philadelphia Experiment, too. He discovered some at that time very unusual and spectatious effects while researching high-voltage condensors.
After joining the US Navy service at the age of 25, Brown was accorded the status equivalent to junior physicist at the Naval Research Laboratory. He was provided with a laboratory room and research facilities to further develop his high-voltage research. In 1931, Brown's former laboratory at Zanesville was closed and sold to the Batelle Memorial Institute of Columbus. As an interesting tidbit, Batelle is working together closely with the Pacific National Institute, where Al Bielek was a researcher for Extreme Low Frequencies (ELF) in the early 80ties.
Between 1932 and 1936, Brown accompanied several research parties as official representative of the NRL. In 1938, Brown worked on continuous strip-chart record of radiation intensity together with Enos Eby Witmer and two other physicists. This research was interrupted by the outbreak of World War II.
Brown's service records for World War II are showing, that he was working for several different agencies such as the Bureau of Ships (as Officer-in-Charge for Acoustic and Magnetic Mine Sweeping), the Philadelphia Navy Yard (as Assistant Machinery Superintendent for outfitting new ships), for the NRL (as Radar Refresher) and for the Naval Operating Base in Norfolk, VA (as Commanding Officer for the Atlantic Fleet Radar School).

This makes T. T. Brown a perfect candidate for the preparation and conduct of the Philadelphia Experiment. His knowledge of radar together with his jobs at both Philadelphia and Norfolk together with his connection to the NRL and the Bureau of Ships completes the picture. A man in his position had all the necessary connections to work on a secret project as the PX was.

  4. Report on the T. Townsend Brown Conference : "...there was some discussion at the conference regarding flying saucers, UFOs, the Philadelphia Experiment, and the Montauk Project. While these areas were held as fringe areas at this conference, they could have information that may relate back to Brown's discoveries."

  20. From an Al Bielek interview:
    "Van Neumann was now in charge, and he switched to a pulse modulation of energy. He lopped off a forward turret from the Eldridge so that he could place two large generators in the hold. Four transmitters were on deck. T. Townsend Brown placed a special transmitter in the hold and an antenna on the 'tower'. Yet another massive generator to power the system was brought on board."

  22. Tesla was told to make the invisibility project work without concern for human life. He refused and sabotaged the project. Ten months later he was found dead in his hotel room in New York. At that point Project Rainbow and UFO development were abandoned, and all resources were concentrated on development of the atom bomb. T. Townsend Brown continued working on UFO propulsion into the 50s, and eventually successfully demonstrated electrogravitation power. By Atlantis Rising 1994-1996

  26. Now declassified records of the US navy show that Einstein was employed intermittently in a special services contract of the Department of the Navy, Washington, D.C. as a scientist from May 31, 1943 to June 30, 1944. Another noted physicist and antigravity researcher T. Townsend Brown was also reportedly involved with the project.
