  1. Rob Clark interviewed Fred Litwin on The Lone Gunman Podcast. As usual, Litwin is selective about what he says about the case. He mentioned CMC in Rome but omits the fact that there were many neo-facist people connected to that company, which make that company suspect. For more info about this see my review of Michele Metta's book about CMC. Litwin also said that he is working on another book. Contacted Rob and asked him if he will have another show where someone will tell Garrison's side of the story. https://kennedysandking.com/john-f-kennedy-reviews/the-canadian-archives-michele-metta-and-the-latest-on-permindex https://www.spreaker.com/user/thelonegunman/ep-176-on-the-trail-of-delusion-w-fred-l
  2. Does anyone have a copy of Clay Shaw's military records?
  3. Jim: The corporate link is dated 2006. That may be him but Fred told me that he is retired, I think from the computer business. The company named in the article is in Toronto and he lives in Ottawa. He may be involved in private business activities but don't believe that he is a corporate board member of that company.
  4. Micah: C2C Journal is not Litwin's blog. It is an online magazine that has articles about a variety of subjects. He is only a contributor to this magazine.
  5. Jim: A few months ago I was working on Marguerite's connection to William Dobkins. I obtained copies of files pertaining to Dobkins from Marguerite's papers that she donated to Texas Christian University. Her papers included a receipt book for her work as a practical nurse. The receipts indicated that she would sometimes stay overnight at a client's home. Did not see Beulah's name in the receipt book but maybe she hired Marguerite. Her husband, John Bratton, died in 1965 and his death certificate stated that he had medical problems for 3 years prior to his death. Marguerite may have stayed with them for a few days to help her with her husband. Her daughter Betty was either Lee's or Harvey's home room teacher during the 1951-1952 school year. It would be interesting to know if they spoke about her daughter possibly being Harvey's home room teacher.
  6. Jim: Once again thanks for the info and thanks to John A for responding. This is an interesting story so I did some research on her and her family. Buleau Bratton had a daughter named Betty who is named on Commission Exhibit 1873-G as Lee Harvey Oswald's sixth grade home room teacher at Ridglea West Elementary School in Fort Worth during the 1951-1952 school year. According to the 1940 census, Buleau, her husband and daughter were living with Walter and Margaret Williamson and their daughter and grand-daughter. Census says that Margaret was born in the US and her age was 53 which means that she would have been born in 1887. Not sure if this is the same Margaret because she is using Margaret and not Marguerite. The 1950 Forth Worth City Directory shows Buleau her husband John and Betty living together in Forth Worth. It says that Betty is a student and Buleau is a teacher. In 1956 they are all still living together at the same address, Buleau is still teaching and Betty is now a teacher. In 1956 Betty married Howard Green.
  7. Jim: Did Buleau Bratton say how she became Marguerite's roommate? Did she meet her through a mutual acquaintance or did either she or Marguerite respond to an ad for a roommate? Did she say at what address and when they lived together? Was it Marguerite's or Buleau's place? Was Harvey living with them as well and if yes did she say about him?
  8. Jim: You mentioned in a post that Harvey's mother had someone living with her who said that she overheard Marguerite speaking German. Do you know this person's name? Lee's mother also had someone living with her. The 1940 census indicates that she had a lodger named Ann Burrougher who was born in 1918. Could not find anything about her on Ancestry. Do you know if John researched this person?
  9. Saw a documentary called Three Identical Strangers which is based on the true story of three identical triplets who were separated at birth as part of an experiment to determine the impact of nature versus nurture on human development. They were raised in three different homes, one blue-collar, one middle class and one affluent, and these homes had different parenting styles. One of the them enrolled in college and noticed that people were addressing him by a different name, which was the name of one of his brothers who attended the same college. Publicity about them reached the third brother who realized that he was related to them. After they reunited they discovered that they had been part of a long-term experiment.
  10. Hi Robert: Welcome to the forum. ONI's possible connection to H&L is an interesting hypothesis. Eckdahl enlisted in the US Navy reserve in 1917 and was stationed at the Experimental Station New London Connecticut. While there he worked on submarine detection. Being in the naval reserve and working on experimental naval equipment may have brought him into contact with Office of Naval Intelligence who would be interested in or may have sponsored this work. In 1919 he departed for Shanghai in China. At that time it was an international settlement controlled by various countries. Do not know for sure if he was involved in intelligence activities but he may have been recruited by the ONI because of his naval service and sent there. Another possibility is that he acted as a domestic contact. They could have asked him to make observations about what he saw in Shanghai and report back to them. This would be the same work Clay Shaw did for the CIA.
  11. John: interesting story and how she found out about his departure is worth investigating.
  12. Jim: Thanks for the info. Coup D'Etat in America mentions her connection to Harold Isaacs who was connected to a CIA front organization. The fact that she is wandering all over the world on a teacher's salary could indicate that she was a domestic contact just like Shaw.
  13. Does anyone know if any research has been done on the alleged intelligence connections of Dorothy Murret?
  14. What "La Red Avispa" could mean is that communism represented by red is going to sting represented by wasp their adversaries in the Miami anti-Castro community.
  15. Hi John: It is an English translation of "La Red Avispa". Don't know why that Spanish phrase was chosen as the name of this group.
  16. Netflix has a movie called the Wasp Network which is based on real events. Miami anti-Castro Cubans attempt to de-stabilize Cuba in the 1990s after the fall of the Soviet Union. Cuban government sets up an intelligence network made up of "defectors" whose objective is to infiltrate the anti-Castro Cubans and report back to Cuban intelligence. It's the 1960s all over again and except this time they are trying to disrupt Cuba's tourism business by bombing hotels.
  17. As I mentioned in an earlier post I had spoken to Tina Tippit-Brown about the called she received in 1963 about LHO and her call to the FBI. She told me that she had made notes about the call but she could not access them as she was settling her late husband's estate. Called her today but she did not answer. Spoke to someone else who I believe is her granddaughter. She told me that this is a bad time for their family and that she would give my message to Tina asking her to call me back.
  18. Robert: Does this book elaborate on the newspaper sources for Permindex's funding, does it say how they found out about the J. Henry Schroder Banking Corporation involvement with this company?
  19. Ignatieff is an interesting person given the circles he moved in. No doubt that many investigative agencies have files on him.
  20. Had a look at the tiles included in this scan and found "Commission of Inquiry Concerning Certain Activities of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police". This reminded me of a scene from the movie "JFK". Jim Garrison goes to Washington DC to meet with Mr. X aka Fletcher Prouty. During this scene someone said, and I am paraphrasing here, "that was a real barn-burner." In Canada, one of the activities the RCMP were accused of was barn-burning. After the Commission concluded its investigation the Canadian government transferred the RCMP's responsibilities for foreign intelligence to the newly-created Canadian Security Intelligence Service.
