After I read Peter Noyes pulp paperback Legacy of Doubt, I took up the chase, first for Jim Braden and then broadening my quest.

I just got an email from Peter, and will ask him to join us here, and I hope others are interested.

Peter Noyes has agreed to join the forum and answer questions.

His little book Legacy of Doubt is one of the most important books on the assassination of President Kennedy, focusing first on the fact that one of those persons taken into custody as a suspicious person at the scene of the crime had changed his name to Jim Braden shortly before visiting Dallas.

Braden, an oil man, con artist and syndicate/mob associate, had lived in New Orleans in the summer of '63 and worked out of the offices of Vernon Main, Jr. in the Perre Marquette office building, just down the hall from Carlos Marcello's lawyer G. Ray Gill.

Richard Sprague, the first chief counsel to the HSCA made Legacy of Doubt required reading for his staff, and Michael Ewing, one of the investigators for G. Robert Blakey, who replaced Sprague, took an avid interest in Jim Braden and helped Blakey write a book about how the mob killed JFK, using the Braden material as supporting evidence.

Rather than just a reader, Legacy of Doubt also ushered me into the real of JFK assassination, research, as the book calls attention to Braden's 1948 arrest in Camden, N.J. in a gambling case, and I obtained the arrest report, one of my first forays into original research.

Peter Noyes was a CBS TV producer, who also worked at various times for ABC, NBC and Fox, and has been honored with the prestigious Edward R. Morrow and Peabody awards.

He is currently writing a book about his years in journalism.

Hay, Bill

After the New York Tom Snyder Show in 1975, his office ask me to check in with Peter Noyes at Los Angeles, I did so

but Mr Noyes as news director after our introduction got busy with his task overseeing the broadcast news.

We spoke briefly of the just competed Snyder show as was the purpose. After waiting for awhile I left

saying I would be in touch later. In leaving Noyes handed me a copy of his book.

Neither of us made contact again.

It will be great to have him on the Forum.

Note from Pete Noyes:

Bill, in case anyone might interested, Legacy of Doubt has just been republished with a revised title, "Legacy of Doubt, Did the Mafia Kill JFK." It went on sale two days ago on Amazon. Another book, "The Real L.A. Confidential," will be out in about 60 days. Best regards Pete

I noticed that the only review of Noyes' book is by Dan Moldea. I wonder if Moldea warned Noyes to stay away from the Forum. He got pretty beat up during his short stay.

Bill, it seems to me that re-issuing this book without adding material about Braden's subsequent life and testimony before the HSCA is kind of a waste of time. Legacy of Doubt raised questions, questions whose answers could better be reached with information that only came later. Do you know if Noyes did any further research and analysis on Braden? If not, SOMEONE should.

I agree Pat.

Braden's subsequent two day closed door testimony before HSCA, and then locked away while G. R. Blakey writes up a mob did it story certainly qualifies as new additional info.

As well as all the work I've done.

Dan Moldea of course, is the Godfather of the Mob did Dealey Plaza thesis.

Maybe Peter will cover some of it in his follow up Real LA Confidential.

I am glad to hear others say this is an important book. I read it probably 30 years ago and thought so but have seen many negative comments over the years since. Looks like Mr. Noyes changed his mind about coming on here.
