MUFON History:

Founded in Quincy, Illinois back in August of 1969 as "the Midwest UFO Network" whose membership was mainly located in Missouri, Illinois and Wisconsin. It wasn't long before membership had grown well outside the scope of the Midwest. The name was change to reflect its growing scope of operation and membership.
