  1. Hope you get to go home this weekend and hoping for a speedy recovery from here Pat. Best wishes <3
  2. Belknap passed in 1985. https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/69084902/jerry-boyd-belknap

  4. Jamey, Frazier goes on to state: "He was walking, not running, away from the grassy knoll."
  5. I haven't picked up his book yet. Have you John? Anything interesting?
  6. As far as I know, these are the only two instances she was interviewed on the assassination.
  7. https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=10408#relPageId=35&tab=page FBI Report, 12/4/63 (CD7, pg.31) As the parade passed by there she heard the first shot but from where they were standing could not observe where the shot came from. She said she panicked after this shot and ran back to the office, later becoming deathly sick over the incident when learning of the President’s death. She said she had a movie camera with her at the time and Wilma Bond had a box camera but she advised that she did not obtain any photographs of the assassination scene. https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=11133#relPageId=17&tab=page FBI Report, 2/14/64 (CD735, pg.8) Mrs. Muchmore stated that after the car turned on Elm Street from Houston Street, she heard a loud noise which at first she thought was a firecracker but then with the crowd of people running in all directions and hearing the two further noises, sounding like gunfire, she advised that she began to run to find a place to hide… She advised that she is positive that she only heard three shots but as to the direction or location of the noises, she would be unable to give an accurate location.
  8. Thank you for your reply Joseph. Ken, "Stationed along the expressway leading to the Trade Mart," implies to me pretty much anywhere along Stemmons, including the area where Denis has listed him.
  9. Do you by chance have a source for the Trade Mart comment? Thanks in advance!
  10. Was it declassified by the ARRB? Maryferrell has the date of last review listed as 12/09/1993, so I'm assuming that to be the case. https://www.maryferrell.org/php/jfkdb.php?field=subjects&value=TEXAS+SCHOOL+BOOK+DEPOSITORY
  11. And here I thought I was going to have the night off :p Much appreciated, as always Bart!
  12. The Dallas Conspiracy is available from the Gus Russo collection in the Baylor University archives.
  13. Fantastic Bart. Can't wait to dive into the archive.
  14. I had never heard of Bobby Joe Johnson before. There appears to be nothing on him at maryferrell.
  15. Can anyone tell me when the memo from Eisenberg to Rankin titled "Identity of Assassin" first became public? Am I correct that it was not included in the Warren Commission materials?
  16. Eugene Hale Brading, though there is no need to speculate if he was there or not.
  17. For what it's worth, Amos Euins comments in his HSCA interview that he could see inmates "hanging on the bars trying to see."
  18. HSCA Final Report, 1/2/79 (pg. 65-66) The Warren Commission had also employed scientific analysis in its investigation and had recognized that acoustics might be used to resolve some questions about the shots fired at the President. It had obtained a tape recording, an alleged on-the-scene account of the assassination made by Sam Pate, a Dallas radio newsman, but an FBI examination of the tape "failed to indicate the presence of any sounds which could be interpreted as gunshots." The FBI also informed the Commission that the newsman had stated that most of the tape was not recorded in Dealey Plaza at the time of the assassination, but was recorded in a studio several days later after he had been dismissed by his station, KBOX. The Commission independently submitted the tape for analysis to Dr. Lawrence Kersta of Bell Telephone Acoustics & Speech Research Laboratory. As reported in a letter from Kersta to the Commission on July 17, 1964, spectograms (visual representations of tonal qualities in the sounds) were made of a key 8-second portion of the tape. The spectograms indicated there were six nonvoiced noises - one nonvoiced "spike" (a scientific term for a graphic display of a noise) followed by three other nonvoiced spikes of different acoustical characteristics occurring .86 seconds, 1.035 seconds and 1.385 seconds after the first. These, in turn, were followed by two events apparently caused by sound and believed to have been related to the previous ones. Dr. Kersta did not indicate in his letter that he had found shots, and the results of his tests were not mentioned in the Warren Report. The committee was unable to locate the Kersta spectographs in the National Archives until late 1978 (they had been misfiled), but it did obtain the tape recording made on November 22, 1963, by KBOX reporter Sam Pate. On May 11, 1978, the committee submitted the tape to an acoustical consultant for analysis, with these results: While a portion of the tape was recorded on November 22, 1963, in the vicinity of Dealey Plaza, it was thought not to be contemporaneous with the assassination. Other portions of the tape, moreover, seemed to have been recorded, at least in large part, in a studio, since appropriate background noise was not present. And even if the tape had been made during the firing of the shots and had recorded them, Kersta's spectographic analysis would not have found them. The committee's consultant advised that spectographic analysis is appropriate only for detecting tonal, or harmonic, sound. To identify a gunshot, the analysis must be able to portray a waveform on an oscilloscope or similar such device.
