Subject: New England-born American folk figure BETTY HILL, who along with her husband gained notoriety w/their 1961 claim that they were abducted by UFO/aliens. Their story inspired several books and films, notable the made-for-TV film "The UFO Incident" with Oscar winning actress Estelle Parsons as Hill, who would have been 100 years old today! ...
arney and Betty Hill were an American couple who claimed they were abducted by extraterrestrials in a rural portion of the state of New Hampshire from September 19 to September 20, 1961. It was the first widely publicized report of an alien abduction in the United States. The incident came to be called the "Hill Abduction" and the "Zeta Reticuli Incident" because the couple stated they had been kidnapped by aliens who claimed to be from the Zeta Reticuli system. Their story was adapted into the best-selling 1966 book The Interrupted Journey and the 1975 television movie The UFO Incident. In September 2016, plans were announced to make a film based on the events, with an unknown release date.
Most of Betty Hill's notes, tapes, and other items have been placed in the permanent collection at the University of New Hampshire, her alma mater. In July 2011 the state Division of Historical Resources marked the site of the alleged craft's first approach with a historical marker.
