I think that Dewey Fournet influenced his thinking to a great extent and he really went to bat for all of Dewey's ideas. He pushed Fournet's study of the motions of the UFO's and he is the one who used to be the most vocal in briefings and at meetings in regard to Blue Book's taking a "negative" attitude. He is the one who became irked in one briefing and asked me if it wasn't true that if we made a few positive assumptions we could prove that the UFO's were real

...
Dewey was Blue Book's liaison man in the D.I. He took over in early 1952 or late 1951 from a Lt. Col. whose name I've forgotten. The Lt. Col. was a completely worthless jerk. Dewey got hot on the subject right away and helped us a great deal in getting things straightened out in the Pentagon. His job was just supposed to be part time, but within a matter of months he was working on it full time. Fournet was the most confirmed believer that I ran into in the Pentagon. He had access to all of our reports, read them all over very carefully, and he was still absolutely convinced. He and I used to argue by the hour and I must say that he had some good arguments. All of his conclusions were based on the "race value" of the reports. If a person said that they saw something and had a good description of it, Dewey took this as the last word. He and I disagreed when I didn't buy the reports lock, stock and barrel. I didn't think that the person was using or having hallucinations, I was sure that they reported what they saw, but I wasn't convinced that what they saw was actually what happened. In other words I played it heavy on the "optical illusion" side and I backed this up with experience. I'd investigated too many reports and found that something that starts out to seem real mysterious can many times prove to be something very simple. No matter how much I talked, however, I never convinced Fournet that I had a point. Dewey is now (1955) a civilian engineer with the Ethyl Corporation in Baton Rouge, La.
...
This man was Dewey Fournet's boss. He wasn't quite as sold on the UFO's as Col Bill Adams but he was pretty well sold. He also "brought" Fournet's ideas and studies. I remember specifically the case of the Burned Scoutmaster: Col Smith was "sold" that this was the real thing. He was following the whole show from the Pentagon, through my calls to Fournet and from the wires that I was sending back. Just as soon as I got back from the first trip to Florida I went in to see him and he got quite irked when I said that something about this scoutmaster just didn't ring true. He said that I was biased and wasn't giving the man a chance. According to Keyhoe, he is the person from the D/I that wrote the anonymous letter that Keyhoe quotes in his book. I don't believe it, however, I think that Fournet wrote it.

...
It was left to Dewey J Fournet Jr, who had been one of project team for fifteen months, to bring up the Et hypothesis again.Fournet, had been an aero engineer and perhaps more importantly, an Technical Intelligence Officer and had witnessed the second Washington incident unfold on the radar screens of the National Airports ARTC room.He resigned his commission in 1952, and took an executive post with the Ethyl Corporation. (*7)
In the report, Fournet is listed as an Interviewee, brought in presumably, to deal with reports he handled while with Blue Book.It was his opinion that after reviewing the reports and eliminating the probable causes, the only explanation for the sightings was an extraterrestrial one.The panel could not accept any of the cases cited by him, as they were unevaluated reports.The Washington Flap, was one of the cases the panel reviewed, no explanation was proffered by them for the incidents, if they did, it was omitted from their report.The cases cited by Fournet are likewise omitted.
