It is with a sad heart I report on the death of Marjorie Fish on April 8, 2013.
Marjorie Fish is best known for designing the 3 dimensional model of the Star Map that Betty Hill had seen while supposedly abducted by aliens along with her husband Barney. The map was supposed to show where the aliens were from.
Kathleen Marden, Betty Hill’s niece and UFO investigator and lecturer, believes that Betty Hill had a photographic memory, which is why she was able under hypnosis to remember the map accurately.
Kitty notes that she is always asked about the Star Map since it is so well known. Marjorie also made the model alien figure supposedly seen by the Hills (called Junior).
But also very interesting is this tidbit Kitty discovered:
The obituary mentions that Fish later repudiated her own Star Map. When I think of the time and energy she devoted to creating the her model of the Star Map this surprised me. The UFO skeptic community, that I have been in contact with, have no recollection of this ever happening.
Hmm. Interesting. Is there some revisionist history going on here or did she really disavow the map?
