• In 1948, one year after the Roswell Incident, a British writer named Bernard Newman published a book named Flying Saucers. The plot of the book was a group of scientists hoaxed a UFO crash in order to force global disarmament. Earlier in 1943 Newman had written another book which gave details for the rebuilding of Europe after World War II. From that book it is clear Newman was almost certainly an intelligence agent close to those in power. It is possible that the publication of Flying Saucers, largely ignored by ufologists, a warning from MI6 that England knew what the US was doing.”—Bernard Newman, http://members.tripod.com/~AlienConspiracy/govcoverups/bernard.htm, accessed October 1, 2006.
• “ Reared in Missouri, Newman went abroad to study at the Art Student's League in Paris and began his career as a window dresser at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City.

In 1936 He left to return to his roots at Bergdorf Goodman, but made occasional returns to Hollywood when he designed the Ginger Rogers film Vivacious Lady (1937) and a one-year stint at Warner Brothers in 1946/47.
