As a background to the conversation the reader should know that Arthur Bridge was a Canadian government scientist working for the defense research board which was the main weapon research unit for the department of defense.
Bridge was a member of a secret “inner circle” of government employees who worked with Wilbert Smith on gravity control experiments and other sensitive matters. The work was done in off hours. Bridge was the youngest member of the group.
I was the only researcher that Bridge ever talked to. He wouldn’t have talked to me either, except that Wilbert Smith’s wife asked him to talk to me. Bridge lived in Morden, Manitoba just 70 miles from my home.
This conversation occurred just after I had sent Bridge two documents by mail for comment. The two documents included the MJ-12 document, and a letter written by scientist Robert Sarbacher to researcher William Steinman about his involvement in a set of crashed saucer briefing that had taken place in 1950 at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. The conversation took place in late 1987 or early 1988.
As you will see from the phone conversation Bridge was very paranoid after his government career. When I went to his house to talk both his wife and two children would be asked to leave the room. Then he would close the door, and remind me that nothing he would tell me should leave the room.
