About Mike Campbell

Author Mike Campbell

Mike Campbell served as an award-winning writer while on active duty with the U.S. Navy and as a civilian journalist and Public Affairs Officer with the Department of Defense. Mike retired from federal service in 2008.

Mike met Thomas E. Devine, author of the 1987 classic, Eyewitness: The Amelia Earhart Incident, in 1988. He was convinced that Devine, Fred Goerner, Vincent V. Loomis, Paul Briand Jr., and others were correct when they claimed Earhart and Fred Noonan died on Saipan after their disappearance in 1937. After 14 years of collaboration with Devine, With Our Own Eyes: Eyewitnesses to the Final Days of Amelia Earhart, was published in 2002 by a small Ohio company.

Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last, published in 2012 by Sunbury Press, represents over 20 years of research and presents the most comprehensive case ever for the presence and death of Earhart and Noonan on Saipan, as well as their initial landing at Mili Atoll in the Marshall Islands. The book  has been completely blacked out by the mainstream media, because the establishment remains heavily invested in protecting the legacy of Franklin D. Roosevelt, the father of the modern Democratic party. Were it ever to become known that FDR refused to lift a finger to help Amelia when she was on Saipan in Japanese custody, his already checkered reputation would turn to ashes. Make no mistake, the Truth can be found here by those who seek it, and the old canard that Amelia’s disappearance remains a “great aviation mystery” is clearly and emphatically exposed for the lie that it is.

In 2005, he co-wrote “The Atchison Report,” an extensive debunking of the notorious and false Amelia Earhart-as-Irene Bolam theory. This theory was first presented in the 1970 book, Amelia Earhart Lives. “The Atchison Report” was distributed to researchers at the 2005 Amelia Earhart Festival in Atchison, Kansas, Earhart’s birthplace.

Mike lives in Jacksonville, Florida with his wife, Nee, and their two cats.

    What is the source of your quote from General Erskine? And to whom, by name, did he state it to? It would seem this statement would have ignited a firestorm, yet it appears not to have done so.

    • earharttruth says:

      The source is Fred Goerner’s letter to Theodore Barreaus, February 19, 1988, from the Goerner Collection at the Nimitz Museum in Fredericksburg, Texas. See page 365 in Truth at Last. Apparently Erskine did not tell Goerner what he told Jules Dundes and Dave McElhatton at the KCBS studio, and it was only later that they told Goerner. That’s the best I can do with the information I have. The general knew that the truth about what happened to Amelia was still top-secret and he wasn’t about to risk government reprisal by announcing it on the air with Goerner, but, like Nimitz and Vandegrift, he admired Goerner’s persistence and wanted to encourage him to continue his efforts. Thus his revelations to Goerner’s KCBS associates.

      You wonder why no “firestorm” results from Erskine’s comments? Well, few ever learned about them. But why was there no firestorm when the July 1, 1960 edition of the San Mateo Times announced in 100-point headlines: “Amelia Earhart Mystery Is Solved”; “Famed Aviatrix Died on Saipan”? For these and other answers, I suggest you invest in a copy of Truth at Last, if you haven’t already. Thanks for your interest.

  2. Mr. Campbell, I am searching for your email address in order to send you a pdf file of the November 6, 2014 letters to the editor page of the Philadelphia Inquirer, where I attack the “absurd, self-aggrandizing claims” and questionable “fund-raising activities” of Ric Gillespie. The Inquirer printed an Earhart photo with it.
