Jan Sammer (b. Plzen, Czechoslovakia, 1953) was an assistant to Immanuel Velikovsky (1976-1979), an archivist and editor for the Velikovsky Estate, 1980-1983. He has a Bachelor of Arts from SGWU, Montreal, 1975, and a Master of International Affairs, Columbia University, NYC, 1986.[1] He has also made contributions to Kronos and Aeon journals. He notes:

"During the time that I worked for Velikovsky (1976-1978) one of my tasks was to complete the cataloguing of his library notes, mostly from the 1940s. The headings of the catalogue generally corresponded to the section headings in Worlds in Collision and In the Beginning. The completion of In the Beginning was a cooperative effort between Velikovsky and myself. After Velikovsky’s passing, when I returned to Princeton to work on his archive, I systematically moved the parts contributed by me into the notes apparatus and this is how this material appears in the unpublished manuscript."[2]
