Lundahl was in the NAVPIC front office by then, so did not do any of the analysis himself. But he knew the guys, Woo and Neasham, well, and was interested in what they were doing. He remembered very clearly the request from the CIA to have personnel bring the films to a scientific panel for review. Either because of this or even previously, he had a strong interest in UFO cases especially involving film. His actual job began to emphasize interpretation of U-2 photos. Early in the 1950s. (c.1954) he became President of the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing. (I have no idea if this presidency demanded a cover job like Fred Durant's involvements in astronomical and rocketry societies did.) He attended a large (c.100 attendee) meeting held by the ONR on UFO information in 1955. Whether this was the final review given by the USN sideline UFO study project initially ordered by Navy secretary Kimball is debated. In the later 1950s, he consistently briefed Ike on aerial reconnaissance and became an influential person in "secret Washington". He also began collecting a file drawer of unclassified UFO photos; whether he also had a drawer of classified UFO photos one may guess. It is suspected by Australian researchers that PIC received the famous Tom Drury film during the early/mid-1950s, and that Lundahl probably knew about it. As a probable irrelevant sideshow, he was briefly involved in the infamous "Mrs. Swan Psychic UFO case", which also drew in Colonel Friend for a while. (c.1959). PIC became NPIC c. 1960, and Lundahl was named director. In this context he constantly briefed both JFK and LBJ, and is considered an American hero for advice given during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. Maintained an intense interest in UFOs during the 1960s, amassing a huge library of UFO related books in his home library. Met with representatives of the Colorado Project in 1967. This meeting was general in tone, but could have served the purposes of both parties. Colorado could get the services of the best photo-analysts anywhere for free, and Lundahl would get to personally see whatever came to them first hand.
In another irrelevancy, in about 1968, Karl Pflock went to work for Lundahl.
In 1970, Lundahl went to Dick Hall's home for an evening's discussion.
Lundahl retired from NPIC in 1973 due to severe arthritis.

Zechel's research for this reportage included contact with now-deceased CIA official Art Lundahl, who revealed to him that, back in February 1969, certain CIA personnel had entered into a formal agreement with some of their counterparts from the Soviet intelligence community.
After being briefed and given a dog-and-pony show by NPIC's founder and director, Art Lundahl, who implored Condon's group to obtain some good UFO photos/films for NPIC to study, Condon issued a nationwide appeal through the media for citizens to send the Condon Committee UFO photos/films to assist the purported "impartial" study of UFOs, post-haste.
According to information provided in confidence to the author by the late Art Lundahl, founder and original director of the CIA's National Photographic Interpretation Center (NPIC), the highly proficient CIA center where U-2, SR-71, and satellite recon photos were analyzed, in February 1969 a high-ranking Soviet KGB official flew to Washington, D. C., in order to meet with the CIA hierarchy and work out a sort of non-aggression pact on UFOs whereby each side would pledge not to falsely claim the UFOs hovering over the other's sensitive military installations were secret devices which belonged to them.
