Don Elkins was born in Louisville, Kentucky in 1930. He held four university degrees, and was a professor of physics and engineering at the University of Louisville and head of the University of Alaska?s mechanical engineering department. He served with distinction as the youngest Master-Sergeant in the history of the U.S. Army during the Korean War. In 1965 he left his position as a tenured professor in order to give himself more time for the UFO and paranormal research that he had pursued all of his adult life, and became a Boeing 727 captain for a major airline until his death in 1984.
Don began the work of L/L Research solo in the mid 1950?s using age regression hypnosis to research reincarnation. He talked with and visited UFO contactees all over the United States, often piloting his own small plane, and investigated the many areas of paranormal study into which UFOs led him through the years, corresponding with and visiting a wide variety of scholars and researchers as well as experiencers, abductees and many others defying categorization throughout his very active career as a researcher. In 1962, Don began an experiment in channeling using material he had found from a contactee group in Detroit, MI, that was publishing a channeling series entitled Man, Consciousness and Understanding, on starting a ?UFO contactee group? without needing actual contact from a physical UFO. Don published some of his UFO research in the book Secrets Of The UFO. The Law Of One books contain our group?s collected sessions with those of Ra, and represent the best of the L/L Research channeling in terms of level of contact, and the bulk of what Don considered his own life?s work.
