Jackie Gleason was a voracious reader of books on the paranormal, including The Urantia Book, parapsychology and UFOs. He even had a house built in the shape of a UFO which he named "The Mothership". During the 1950s, he was a semi-regular guest on the paranormal-themed overnight radio show hosted by John Nebel, and wrote the introduction to Donald Bain’s biography of Nebel.
According to Gleason’s second wife, Beverly McKittrick, he told her that U.S. President Richard Nixon took him on a secret visit to Homestead Air Force Base. There, Gleason allegedly saw an alien spaceship and dead extraterrestrials.
After his death, his large book collection was donated to the library of the University of Miami.

    I had heard about this not surpisingly on Coast to Coast one night and the version goes that Gleason was really into extraterrestrial research but after seeing the disturbing images of alien bodies mangled he lost his interest in Ufology altogether.
