Now I know I'm throwing this into the fray only to get a little beat up.... but CE99 is a list of answers Oswald writes out in a somewhat autobiographical manner... Just a couple anomalies to which I'd like to call your attention... #4 our little man writes that from 1954 - 1956 he lived in Ft Worth, TX. This is a NEW ORLEANS PUBLIC SCHOOL - Personal History form. If read carefully thru the answers here it is obvious this is LEE andnot the diminutive Harvey. Why? This is JUNE 1955, Oswald is 16 years old and about 5'5" 135 lbs.... he likes FOOTBALL, present vocational choice? Biology and Mechanical Drawing... he has a bum left ear drum.... "What was the last school you attended?" PS 44 in NY And these are the GRADE CARDS from FALL 1953 thru the SPRING 1954 semester So if the evidence offered above has him in New Orleans in 1953, 1954 & 1955 thru June.... "1954 - 1955: Beauregard JHS in New Orleans" "1955 - 1956 Warren Eaton HS in New Orleans" All the other items listed on that Bio page are accurate.... STRIPLING JR HIGH across the street from the house Marge is living in on 11/22 at 2220 Thomas.... the one owned by a friend of FRED KORTH. Mr. DULLES. I think you moved to Fort Worth with Lee in September 1956. In October 1955 Oswald turns 16. The 1955-56 school year would be 10th grade for Oswald at Arlington Heights see above image. The record shows he only attends until October (the little letters next to the years are F=Fall & S=Spring) . 9/54-6/55 is 9th grade Beauregard JHS in New Orleans as it shows... FOR OSWALD TO ATTEND A FT WORTH SCHOOL IN SEPT 1955 DON'T THEY HAVE TO LIVE IN FT WORTH? So let's look again... DATE ENTERED: Sept 5, 1956 Which may be why DULLES says Sept 1956... it also seems that an exhibit from CE1413 is not there anymore... but that Armstrong took a copy of from the Archives. Transcript sent to: Arlington in Sept 1956 ?? In June 1955 he writes the New Orleans Bio... he is now ready for 10th grade... which the above Ft Worth PERM REC shows him starting in Ft Worth in Sept 1955.... and leaving in Oct 1955... to join the Marines... except he doesn't join until Oct 24, 1956 according to FOLSOM. Where is our little man Oswald from June 1955 until Sept 1956? He was working at TUJAGUES at the same time Marge writes her note about moving to San Diego. From July 1955 thru late 1956 LEE works at Tujagues - Harvey is in San Diego with MO for the summer and from evidence John found, attended Stripling in Ft Worth... Which may be why CE99 only mentions Ft Worth for those years despite having evidence to show him in New Orleans PIERRE: Well, then, did he have any close buddies? Mrs Oswald: Yes, when we lived in Fort Worth, Texas. He went to school there up until the eighth grade, which is Junior High; all the children came to my house because this was a brand-new neighborhood. I was not financially able to have the lawn sodded, and everyone else was having their grass growing, and the children were not allowed to play on the grass, so they all played in my yard and my grass and in my home, Francine Tubbs #5 - if you look at the FOLSOM Exhibit we see he was an AIRCRAFT MECHANIC... not a radar operator (LEE was the mechanic, Harvey was indeed radar) #6 he tells us he has a son named David Lee Oswald, American. uh, okay. but we all know our man has 2 daughters....
