Calvin Coolidge Girvin (October 10, 1926 - May 14, 2005) was an American contactee who reported himself to have had a transmigrant experience in the Philippines during the Second World War (in the style of then-popular T. Lobsang Rampa, an Englishman-turned-Tibetan-Lama), in addition to contacts with Cryxtan, his Venusian spy handler, and Ashtar.

Selected Bibliography

  • Girvin, Calvin (1958), The Night has a Thousand Saucers, El Monte, CA: Understanding Publishing Co. 

Girvin apparently had a manuscript for a follow-up book called In Search of the Saucers, but it is unclear that it was ever published. Of further interest, Girvin was a painter, and provided the dust jacket artwork for other contactee works, including Howard Menger's From Outer Space To You (Saucerian Books, 1959).


Press Coverage


  • Girvin, described as a "planetarian," made an appearance the Joe Pyne Show in 1967, during which he was advertised to have stated that "the Garden of Eden was destroyed when Adam split the atom and that Washington is withholding information ... there really is life on the moon."[1]
