  1. Paul, on C A Evans, the memo author: From the New York Times 12/12/1964 WASHINGTON, Dec. 11 (AP)—Courtney A. Evans, assistant director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, will retire from, the bureau at the end of this month. Mr. Evans, who has been with the bureau for 24 years, is an aide of J. Edgar Hoover, the bureau's director. The sandy‐haired, mild‐mannered Mr. Evans is one of the F.B.I.'s more widely known men. He is known to the business world as the bureau's expert on matters financial—embezzlements, bankruptcy, confidence rackets, defalcations, and the threat
  2. Joe, Joel Gruhn here, Barrington RI.

    Interesting point you make about the makeup of autopsy participants in the Dorthy Kilgallen thread.

    I know of a similar story. If you would be willing to discuss, please reach out to me at joelgn@yahoo.com.



  3. For what it's worth, I had a left lower molar removed in ~ 1965,. behind it there were two molars and a wisdom tooth (also removed shortly after).

    The rear two molars tipped forward until there was  contact and have been perfectly stable for 50+ years. I think this is normal.

  4. yes, excellent. Please let us know what you need in terms of financial support. Joel Gruhn
  5. Hi Joel, I don't know if I answered this before but when I finally got Adml. Bruton's phone number in DC area and called it, his daughter answered the phone and said he had died and she was cleaning out his effects. I asked if there was anything to do with Collins Radio and she said no. That was in the 1980s. Email me bkjfk3@yahoo.com

  6. Hi Joel, yea, I don't think the sub commander is the guy we're looking for. It's Gordon S. Campbell, who officially died in 1962

  7. Bill - re g campbell...

    Sorry but I am confused. Isn't the ex sub commander buried in Arlington with a death year of 2000? maybe I missed somethhing in this thread.

  9. Jack, there is an add-on to IP Board (the message board software used here) that provides a photo gallery - exactly what you want. A full description is at http://www.invisionpower.com/products/gallery/ cost is ~ $65; it could be a central place for many photos galleries. Having it an integral part of the board software would, in my humble opinion, make it easier to moderate. I am wondering if we need to pass the hat. Joel D. Gruhn
  10. I don't agree with much of what Peter wrote, but I must defend his presence here. If a you work on your home, and thereby increase the value of your property, that increase is often referred to as "sweat equity" In the case of an open forum of ideas, that sweat equity is the sharing of research by members, and their objective commentary on the subjects at hand. IMHO I know of no other web forum where the moderators routinely fall back on justifications of "ownership". Yes - they own the server, and put up with complaints, and I respect that. But does that make it wise or legitimate to eras
  11. not to mention Tosh Plumlee... add a score more, who in frustration will simply decide that they have better things to do. We had a valuable and unique place here to share ideas.
  12. Forum: 1. A public meeting place for open discussion. 2. A medium for open discussion or voicing of ideas, such as a newspaper, a radio or television program, or a website. I have to agree, Len. A moderator must be moderate and accept that everyone is not going to always agree in a spirited debate, and be able to temper his/her defensiveness. The threads were disappeared, which to anyone would feel like like censorship rather than an open forum. My two posts were whisked away - and they were not critical of any specific individual, any more than this one is. I t
  13. Without getting into the details of cryptanalysis, it is my understanding that having even a short piece of known plaintext incorporated into a coded message drastically reduces the computer time required to break the code in a brute force attack. This is called 'gardening". As described in the Wikipedia article on Gardening (cryptanalysis): In cryptanalysis, gardening was a term used at Bletchley Park, England, during World War II for schemes to entice the Germans to include known plaintext, which the British called "cribs," in their encrypted messages. This term presumably came from RAF
  14. Greg, I am interested if you could please post the rest for all to similarly review.... jdg
  15. I believe it would have been Itek, a bunch of very savvy optical engineers; they designed photo reconnasence cameras such as the CORONA. I had a friend who worked there in mid '70's at the California office near Moffitt Field where they serviced the U2 cameras. They would be good at microdensitometry, where the pixels are very very small. The wikipedia page offers a fairly complete history. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itek Joel
