Public information officer at the time of the Roswell event who wrote the press report stating that the object recovered was a "flying disc" and maintained this story throughout his life, even after the report was retracted by the military.

Walter Haut became a prominent figure in the UFO community after the Roswell incident. He was a public information officer at that time and wrote the press release stating that the military had recovered a "flying disc." Soon after, the statement was withdrawn claiming that the crashed object was actual a weather balloon. Even so, Haut swore up until his death in 2005 that the object he saw and handled was otherworldly and asserted that there was "no chance" that the military officers who found the material could possibly have mistaken a weather balloon for a flying saucer.
