  1. The Mary Ferrell Foundation has put Gaeton Fonzi's The Last Investigation back in print, available for $29.95 directly from the Foundation (http://www.maryferrell.org/wiki/index.php/MFF_Store), or from amazon.com who takes all the money for their troubles. :-) The book is updated with a new Epilogue by Fonzi as well as a new Preface by his colleague Bernard McCormick. For those who don't need a 2nd copy or have spent all their money on gas (Bill Maher: "If Colonel Sanders was president, and the price of chicken tripled, wouldn't we be a little suspicious?"), the MFF site has a page of abund
  2. John, Very good question, which I will throw back at you. I know less than I should about the organization of RFK documents; on the FBI LAFO docs Jim Lesar just handed me 4 boxes full of volumes. I haven't finished processing and uploading them yet (they should all be online by tomorrow), but there are no volumes 7-10 in them. Do you know what is up with that? (I am planning to talk to Jim Lesar about it too) Rex
  3. Bill, Thanks very much for the history behind the Lantern Spike report, which I wasn't aware of (yet another book to add to the in-pile!). Do you know what happened to the documents received by the Memphis Commercial Appeal? Rex
  4. I wanted to alert forum members to a set of new document collections on the Mary Ferrell site (http://www.maryferrell.org). These come courtesy of the AARC: MLK Assassination - http://www.maryferrell.org/wiki/index.php/...ation_Documents * HSCA appendix volumes on MLK * FBI MURKIN Files (partial collection) * Army Lantern Spike after action report RFK Assassination - http://www.maryferrell.org/wiki/index.php/...ation_Documents * Sirhan Sirhan trial transcript * Appeal documents * FBI Los Angeles Field Office Files (coming online over the next few days) Still to come are the voluminou
  5. To all MFF users, The bad behavior should be fixed now; apologies again. The new behavior of the site is now somewhat more open than before: 1. Browsing, as always when we aren't breaking things, is completely free, as is following email links, etc. 2. Searching, from within the site, and from outside (Google, Yahoo, etc.) allows a few clickthroughs to the site before the big bad message demanding payment shows up. This is to allow more people to see what the site has to offer. Obviously if you are doing active research using the search engine, a paid membership would still be necessary.
  6. PETER. I WILL PAY YOUR FEES. ALTHOUGH I DO NOT ALWAYS AGREE WITH YOU RESEARCH AND CONCLUTIONS. HOWEVER, I RESPECT YOUR DEDICATION AND TIME ON THIS SUBJECT IN SEARCH FOR TRUTH. PERHAPS REX CAN MAKE THE ARRANGEMENTS VIA EMAIL TO ME AND WE WILL GET YOU A MEMBERSHIP. To all, My apologies and forebearance is requested. We just yesterday implemented an opening of the archive which backfired. The pre-yesterday behavior was that all searches were limited to members, and browsing free to all. The intended behavior as of today is to allow a limited number of searches for non-members, and ke
  7. One never knows, but my personal view is that Trafficante was a very smart man who knew how to handle congressional committees. His public testimony is similar to this previously-withheld testimony in his smooth deflection of questions and his obvious lack of candor and general closed-mouthedness. Rex
  8. On a trip to NARA last year, I noticed that 5 documents in the HSCA Immunized Testimony boxes remained withheld in full. Most prominent were Santos Trafficante's immunized testimony of 14 Nov 1977, and a lengthy memo written later in preparation for his public testimony. I made inquiries, and all 5 documents are now open in full, and last week I went to College Park and scanned them. See the page below for links to all of them, as well as other HSCA testimony I got while there (Priscilla Johnson McMillan and William Walter). http://www.maryferrell.org/wiki/index.php/...timony_Released Tra
  9. Charles, The answers I give below may be inadequate because of my desire to respect privacy concerns of a benefactor of the MFF. Here goes: 1. Where are the Ferrell archives? I understand that security and related matters may legitimately preclude you from being specific. Perhaps not. I and others are concerned that, while your intentions clearly are noble, parties who could benefit from the culling of Mary's immense collection are abroad in the land. I do not want to be specific on this one, sorry. I have visited the collection on several occasions. It is under padlock and I do not
  10. I'd like to try a second time to describe the state of affairs with Mary Ferrell's collection and the Foundation. As many people may know, I started the History Matters website (www.history-matters.com) and am also Vice-President of the Assassination Archives and Research Center (AARC - www.aarclibrary.org), which Jim Lesar heads. I have for the nearly 3 years now been devoting considerable attention to building the Mary Ferrell Foundation's website, which a few weeks ago passed 750,000 pages of JFK-related documents, along with photos, audio, video, and various special projects. I of cours
  11. I posted this at the end of a long discussion but then decided it merited a new topic, so here goes: The Mary Ferrell Foundation just today published Morley and Talbot's piece on the RFK-Ambassador story, entitled "The BBC's Flawed RFK Story." As the title implies, after 6 weeks of interviewing dozens of people, they conclude that the photo identifications don't hold up, though the Joannides one is the most mixed. They also verified that Gordon Campbell died in 1962. The piece is accompanied by new photos of Morales and the first-ever published photos of Joannides (assuming you discount the A
  12. So now we are awaiting on Shane to complete this and find an outlet in USA and for Jeff Morley and David Talbot to give their new photos of Morales and update on inquiry to Rex and MFF?

  13. It would cost about $5000 to replicate the Mac setup I have, including all new programs, scanner, printer, etc. Not worth it. My present setup does 95% of what I need. Expensive conversation piece. Jack Jack, Very sorry to hear you can't access the MFF site - I'll see if we can do a little more testing. Do you have trouble with many websites, or just this one? If your problems are more general, an alternative to a $5000 replacement might be to get a 2nd inexpensive notebook computer just for web use or other things that don't work on your Mac. I got one at Staples for about $600 (
  14. Don Thomas has written a new essay, not on acoustics this time. It discusses the issue of Oswald and the 6th floor "sniper's nest", particularly focused on the testimony of black TSBD employees including Charles Givens and Bonnie Ray Williams. Entitled "Rewriting History: Bugliosi Parses the Testimony," it dissects Vincent Bugliosi's handling of this matter in addition to that of the Warren Commission. This essay is published on the Mary Ferrell site. Lots of pictures, and many reference links for the obsessive among us. http://www.maryferrell.org/wiki/index.php/...s_the_Testimony Rex
