Newbie (1/14)

  1. Marguerite had six siblings, 3 sons, 3 daughters-in-law, and about 10 grandchildren. That's a lot of people who have to keep a secret. If there were two versions of my sister, my mother, or my grandmother, I think it's very likely that I would know about it. LHO is a different story. He was away from the U.S. for many years and he was very conveniently murdered on November 24, 1963. He may very well be the patsy he claimed to be, and perhaps more. And James Douglass makes a very convincing case for this.

  3. This is a valid question. There is no argument with the quantity of photos and large number that do not appear anywhere else. The print quality is also excellent. However, I have some major reservations: over-lapping photos, colorization and cropping, inadequate documentation and attribution. However, I readily admit that I love Groden's books and refer to them often. But they also frustrate me.
  4. I struggled with this one, but the quality of the photos is so poor (on my copy anyway) that I decided to leave it out.
  5. As a supplement to Robert Morrow's two topics about best and worst books, here's my list on the photography of the JFK assassination. The Top Two - Richard Trask, Pictures of the Pain. - Dale K. Myers, With Malice (Tippit shooting) For their scholarship, thoroughness and excellent documentation. You don't have to agree with their conclusions. One small nick to pick with Trask: the photos should have gotten better treatment by the printers. This was nicely address in Trask's follow-up volume, That Day in Dallas, but only for Cecil Stoughton, James Altgens, and Jim Murray Honorable Mention (in no particular order): - Robert Groden, The Search for Lee Harvey Oswald - Robert Groden, The Killing of a President - Jesse Curry, JFK Assassination File - Wilborn Hampton, Kennedy Assassinated, The World Mourns - Cathy Trost and Susan Lewis Bennett, President Kennedy Has Been Shot Best of the Rest (not necessarily picture books, but have lots of pictures) - Noel Twyman, Bloody Treason - Jim DiEugenio, Destiny Betrayed (Garrison and Clay Shaw) - Rosemary James & Jack Waldlaw, Plot or Politics? (Garrison and Clay Shaw) - Joan Mellen, A Farewell to Justice (Garrison and Clay Shaw) - Robert B. Denson, Destiny in Dallas (Ruby trial)
  6. It's very briefly mentioned on p. 325 of Brothers in Arms.
  7. Here's Billy Bass leading the Three Tramps in the famous photo by William Gaston Allen
  8. For bargain hunters: David Talbot's excellent book "Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years" is available on Amazon (the U.S. version anyway) for $7.99. Also on sale: "Ultimate Sacrifice" for ten bucks.
  9. Here's a different version of the Alvarado picture
  10. Thanks, Lee, for identifying Toni Foster and pointing out Hill and Moorman. They were so near the edge of the screen, especially Hill, that I missed them. In your annotated frame, Foster is a little closer to the camera but she looks a lot bigger than Moorman. Maybe she really is 6'5" as pointed out by Fetzer in his Zapruder film hoax article!
  11. Attached below is a capture that corresponds approximately to frame 24 of the Nix film. This frame has been identified as equivalent to Zapruder frame 313 (the head shot frame). Standing on the grass at the north side of Elm Street is Bill Newman (between the limousine and the motorcycles). Who is the lady in the tan color coat standing on the south side in the same position? My initial reaction is that this would be the Babushka Lady, but I don't see a head scarf. Also further along in the sequence, I would expect to find Mary Moorman and Jean Hill in her red coat, but I don't see them. Can someone help me out on this? Thanks in advance. Roger
  12. While performing a routine Google search for Jerry Belknap, I ran across a link to the Internet Movie Database, one of my favorite sites. Turns out it is indeed the Jerry Belknap who's the subject of this message, and the film is the Bronson film. This is very curious for a number of reasons. - What were the circumstances that lead to the listing of the Bronson film at imdb.com? (Nix, Muchmore, Zapruder, Towner, etc are also listed). - The Belknap listing in the Bronson film appears to be erroneous. From what I've read, Bronson did not start shooting until about 6 minutes prior to the President's arrival. The Belknap incident happened about 12:10 so Belknap cannot be in the Bronson film. Does anyone have additional information about this? Link to Bronson film on imdb.com
  13. I've noticed that many of James' image attachments are no longer online. I've run into several missing images in the past week. Since James is such an important contributor of images, perhaps he should be given more storage space so that his contributions remain online.
  14. This must be him. It's from the Ranger HS site. JERRY BELKNAP died in 1985. He attended RHS but moved in 1955 graduating from Irving High School. He was survived by his parents J.T. (RHS-1931) and Inez Pounds (RHS-1936) Belknap, brother Jim Belknap and wife Pat of Fort Worth, sisters Virginia Cowley (RHS-1957) of Temple, Janice Odom and husband Jim of San Antonio, and Judy Parker and husband Michael of Killeen.
