J Richard Knapp

Notes From J Richard Knapp

     I wanted to write a story for tweens and teens about a cover-up at the end of World War II to hide secrets that the United States was extracting from Germany and sending back to the United States. This led me to research the role of holocaust prisoners in 'flying saucer' research. Could there really be flying saucers? Make up your own mind.

J Richard Knapp Charities
     Knapp has served as a community volunteer most of his adult life to help children in need. The author's first significant efforts occurred in 1975, when he designed and organized a summer sports program for boys and girls in his community.
     J Richard moved his family to Oregon in 1978, where he immediately began volunteer work with children in poverty. His own experiences with poverty as a teen constantly motivated his efforts. Knapp founded a non-profit organization in the mid 1990's which focused on children in two categories. The first targeted children in poverty by providing coats and shoes for the needy. The second area was children and teens dealing with cancer. The non-profit organization continued its work for over a decade and is now a community program.
