Leonard claims to have found a copy of a controversial document (which may never existed and what Leonard saw could only have been a hieroglyphic copy of a hieratic copy of a possible hieratic original) known as the Tulli Papyrus and to have translated it using a grammar by E. A. Wallis Budge and other sources.
For a number of years Leonard was Anthropology Consultant for UFO research institutions, including the International UFO Bureau (IUFOB) and the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON; then known as the Midwest UFO Network), and has lectured on the subject of "Ancient Astronauts" in schools and universities, as well as in various symposiums conducted by the above UFO organizations. Leonard’s career in Anthropology has been marred by his insistent interest in the fields of ancient UFOs and Atlantis.
His interest in the alleged civilization of Atlantis resulted in expeditions to Western Europe, North Africa, Mesoamerica, as well as Caribbean and Atlantic island groups, which gave him access to European museums and libraries, and allowed inspection of historic and prehistoric archeological sites. Now retired, Leonard was once a member of the International Platform Association. He also held memberships in the Oklahoma Anthropological Society and the Oklahoma Science & Arts Foundation. He is presently Director of the Atlantek Educational Facility and its associated website.

Famous quotes containing the word claims:
“So immense are the claims on a mother, physical claims on her bodily and brain vigor, and moral claims on her heart and thoughts, that she cannot ... meet them all and find any large margin beyond for other cares and work. She serves the community in the very best and highest way it is possible to do, by giving birth to healthy children, whose physical strength has not been defrauded, and to whose moral and mental nature she can give the whole of her thoughts.”
—Frances Power Cobbe (18221904)
“When a man says that he is Jesus or Napoleon, or that the Martians are after him, or claims something else that seems outrageous to common sense, he is labeled psychotic and locked up in a madhouse. Freedom of speech is only for normal people.”

“In great contests each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God. Both may be, and one must be wrong.”
