Vanguard Sciences (sponsor of KeelyNet) was organized in December of 1986 in Dallas, Texas as an alternative means of communication with regard to the more science-based relationships of metaphysics and the paranormal. Kay West suggested the name (Vanguard) after much deliberation among a group of friends meeting at Ron and Kays house. The spelling was at one time Vangard, originally intended to prevent any collision with other VangUards (with a U). (Since 1995, we have changed to Vanguard.) Our original intent was to present public presentations in the form of lectures and workshops, perform basic research and practical development in various scientific and pseudo-scientific disciplines and provide regular meetings for anyone seeking to be actively involved in the study of the more unusual aspects of science.
