  1. Pedro de Haro was the President of Hermandad Cubana.
  2. Regarding the Hermandad Cubana, can you tell us anything about Pedro de Haro?
  3. Greg is right, that is definitely Sturgis but not LHO. It is a reporter whose name escapes me for now. The film was taken in 1961 at a parachuting practice ground run by a guy named Popperwell or smothing similar. My memory is not what it used to be. There were also some press photographs taken that day one of which shows Hemming, Sturgis and Larry deJoseph. James Richards has posted it here before. JK
  4. You're kidding right? By that logic we shouldn't be posting head shot frames from the Zapruder film, or JFK autopsy pictures, etc? Unbelievable. Sorry, Greg, I don't have that report. JK
  5. Zach,you probably already know this but the John Martin in question, the man who handled Robert Emmett Johnson was John Clements from the Hearst organization. JK
  6. Alexander Rorke and mercenary Neil MacCaulley. JK
  7. In that collage titled Interpen members and associates, that is not Ed Kolby but Dennis Harber. JK
  8. Zach, that's James Arthur Lewis on the left and Mickey Kappes on the right. JK
  9. Ramon Orozco was one of Rip Robertson's guys back in the early 1960's and participated in several raids into Cuba with Tony Izquierdo. In 1973, Orozco was charged with violation of an order of non-departure and did a short stint in prison. JK
  10. There was a militant Cuban exile named Rafael Paz. He was a close associate of Ramon Orozco who himself is a very interesting character. Both were connected to Alpha 66 and were busted running guns into Cuba in 1970. FWIW. JK
  11. The photo came from the Bangor Daily News. I don't have the date. JK
  12. Is this one of the Navarro's you refer to? Wilfredo Navarro on the left, Frank Sturgis in the middle and unknown on the right. I think he was a lawyer. Sorry about the poor quality. JK
  13. Zach, you are correct. Col Bishop was not John Adrian O'hare. If O'hare didn't die in 1974, and he didn't, then an interesting player in all of this is pathologist R.G. Guzman. Private eye and ex cop James Jones was on O'hare's trail and he believed that O'hare travelled to South Africa and connected with Mike Hoare. Mike Hoare and Rip Robertson became close when Robertson and his Low Beam Cubans helped in the fight in the Congo during the mid 1960's. JK
  14. Hi Mr. Kelly, First off, I just want to say that I very much enjoy reading your posts. They are filled with great insight. I was wondering if you could share who the Manhattan connection to this is? I seem to remember reading about a man by the name of John Martin who was supposedly from NYC and associated with Intel-types. Is this the man you were referring to? Thanks, Zach Excellent, Zach, you are right on the money. John Martin is an alias of course. He was also a sponsor of Robert Emmett Johnson. I very much enjoy your posts. Keep up the great work. JK
  15. To give the appearance of normalcy, Hand rented a flat at 35 Union Street Pyrmont but was actually staying at the Sebel Town House or Bernie Houghton's Elizabeth Bay penthouse. He used the name Alan Winter to leave the country. The real Winter was a normal guy, wife two kids, who worked as a butcher in Bexley. An associate of Hand approached Winter claiming he worked for an insurance company and secured his parent's birthdates, their marriage date and mother's maiden name. At the time, this is all one needed to request a birth certificate. This item plus two photographs would secure a passport
  16. Sorry about the typo, it was WKDA. JK
  17. I was wondering if anyone had any information regarding a shooting back in May of 1967? The president of radio station AKDA, Charles Walker, reported that while Novel was travelling in a news wagon, it came under a barrage of gunfire. Novel was supposedly wounded but not seriously. Any information would be appreciated. JK
  18. Frank Castro and Tony Izquierdo. JK
  19. A poor quality image of J.T. Masen. And to add another into the mix, Dial Ryder. JK
  20. It might be worth mentioning that David Morales held cryptographic clearance. JK
  21. During February of 1964, there was some movement of Cuban assets (including Manuel Artime and Rafael Quintero) into various training programs part instructed by Zamka (David Morales). Two other agency men involved were James D. Zaboth and James E. Beckhoff. Amyone have any idea who these guys really were? JK
