  1. The problem with this video is that if we want to know LHO's state of mind on November 22, 1963 he would have had to been examined by a qualified psychologist. As we all know, he was not examined by one after he was arrested so this will question will never be answered. Another problem with psychological analysis is that it can't prove innocence or guilt. Even if it could be proven that he was mentally unbalanced, that in itself can't prove that he assassinated JFK.
  2. Everyone: Link below is the finding aid for the Blair papers. Can you let me know which ones you want copied of and I will ask them for an estimate. If the cost is too high we can always wait until February or for when Jim will have time to go there. http://digicoll.library.wisc.edu/cgi/f/findaid/findaid-idx?c=wiarchives;cc=wiarchives;view=text;rgn=main;didno=uw-whs-mss00234
  3. A person who may be able to help us is Terri Tippit. She is Jack Tippit's daughter and she may know something about the call. Have tried to locate her but have not been able find her.
  4. Jim: Very interesting article. It's clear that the SSA is holding back information. Did John A. ever try to get a copy of their SSN applications? It would be interesting to see who applied for them and when. Did Lee and his mother apply for them and then their SSNs were given to Harvey? Did Harvey's caretaker use Lee's mother's SSN?
  5. Jim: Did both Marguerites and Lee and Harvey apply for a social security number, and if yes did he obtain a copy of their SSN applications?
  6. David: I should have said "mother." Been researching her and it has been tough going. Her origins are as difficult to locate and as important as Harvey's origins. Not sure if she did her patriotic duty because if she played a knowing part of Oswald project, then why did she not say anything to the Warren Commission or the press about the Oswald project? Do you believe she did her patriotic duty? She had a connection to Keith Thompson who was connected to far-right US politics, another interesting fact given her connection to the Oswald project.
  7. John B. Thank you for contacting Russ Geck. That was good work on your part. If he gets back to you with details about John Gardos he can be eliminated as being Harvey.
  8. Paul: In this document Grossi admits to his connection to organized crime. Maybe the mafia played a role in the bogus rifle work being done in Irving.
  9. Paul: In my earlier post I mentioned Grossi's relationship with Dial Ryder's sister Fleta. This document shows that they were married and later divorced. Grossi married Dial Ryder's sister Fleta.
  10. Does anyone know what the relationship is between Jack D. Tippit and JD Tippit? If the caller was from New York, how did she know that Jack D. Tippit lived in Westport Connecticut?
  11. Jack D. Tippit's son, Stephen Allen (1951-1980) was murdered. Doubt that there is any connection to the Tippit call but this is interesting.
  12. Found this online, a short article about Jack D.Tippit. He flew bombers in WWII and the article includes a picture. https://books.google.ca/books?id=i3KpPpNL3JMC&pg=RA4-PP4&lpg=RA4-PP4&dq=jack+d+tippit+president+national+cartoonist&source=bl&ots=RJFiYX5ERi&sig=ACfU3U3BwQRPP5tq3JAskLrnwnqf9PMIGA&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj77KyL9b_mAhULq1kKHWnTDnEQ6AEwAnoECAkQAQ#v=onepage&q=jack d tippit president national cartoonist&f=false
  13. Heard back from my contact at DPF, he will be able to help us but not now. He will be available in early February. At that time I will ask everyone to tell me what they want reviewed and will pass this request on to him.
  14. Paul: You make a good point about Grossi being an informant. If he was informing on someone they would want to hide this and his connection to the FBI. Grossi’s prison record, which is posted on this thread, has an entry for the time period in 1944 and it states “juvenile delinquency” while other entries show what crime he committed. The source for this entry is the FBI. Looks like they are trying to hide something about this crime. This is speculation on my part but when I was researching Albert Osborne aka John Howard Bowen I discovered that he worked with juveniles while working with the Camp Fire Council. He helped create this organization in the 1930s in Knoxville, TN. It’s goal was to provide activities for young boys who would otherwise might get into trouble with the law. Could Osborne have been the person who mentored Grossi in his teens and then got him the job at JCS? If he was this person, this connection would be too much to ignore.
  15. Jim: No, they are 2 separate people. Albert Osborne was born in England in 1888 and served in the British Army before emigrating to the US in 1914. Grossi is US born. Osborne took the identity of a man named John Howard Bowen who was born in the US in 1880. Wrote a story about Osborne The Dual Life of Albert Osborne which is published on Kenendys and King. I was able to find a picture of the real John Howard Bowen and this is included in my story. Grossi had many aliases, one of which is John Bowen. Grossi's Leavenworth prison record is below. It has a lot of info about him, his family and other connections. https://archive.org/details/johngrossiprisonrecord
  16. Jim: Just contacted the poster and will let everyone know what his answer is. Not sure how knowledgeable he is about the Tippit call so I explained the event to him. He has posted on David's H&L thread on Deep Politics. If he agrees to go to Madison we can all make suggestions about which boxes and file folders to review. I can make a list for him that would include everyone's suggestions.
  17. John B and Jim: There is a person on Deep Politics forum that lives about a one hour drive away from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Has anyone gone there to look at their papers, if not I can contact him and ask him if he would be interested in making copies of these letters. Had a look at the Blair papers finding aid, there is a lot of correspondence and a family history as well. A box and folder list should be made for anyone who plans to review the papers.
