Linda,

I would attest that even more significant and least understood is DeMohrenschildt's wife from Philadelphia, Dr. D. D. Sharples, whose father owned Colorado oil wells, and is still alive and a Trustee of Temple Univeristy, home of Joan Mellen and the Man on the Motorcycle in MC.

Possibly so, but Sharples probably had nothing to do with Camarillo or the Oxnard phone call. What is intringuing about the Colorado oil wells, though, was that DeMohrenschildt was apparently working there during the time he was a partner of Edward G. Hooker, his brother Dimitry's wife's son. Hooker had been the man who introduced George to Lynn Sharples, who later became a doctor. All that happened before he met the love of his life, Jeanne LeGon, whose husband Robert lived in California with their daughter Christiana until he was sent off to the mental ward in Camarillo. I wonder if there was someone there trying to find out nuclear secrets from him. I seem to recall Jeanne's brother Sergei Fomenko was also involved in atomic research in California, working for Howard Hughes and Linnet Company of Beverly Hills; then Ramo-Wooldridge in Los Angeles; then North American Aviation.

The mention of Richard Sorge's name in connection with that of LeGon's daughter was a matter that seemed to fascinate Mary Ferrell who followed it in her chronologies:

Incidentally, more information about Hooker's relationship to George H.W. Bush appears in Russ Baker's book, Family of Secrets.

It will probably be hard for Forum members to believe, but I really feel uncomfortable posting material that deals with the esoteric and the strange UFO type material, as I am all too aware that these topics seem to give a impetus to the LN crowd, that feeds into the "Frank Sinatra's drummer killed JFK" type material, but nonetheless. Rosicrucian undercurrents to the Oxnard call have been brought to the surface by a very esteemed researcher....as some are aware.

Readers may also be aware of the fact that Aldous Huxley died on the same day that JFK did.....

Somewhere in that esoterica, is a very interesting factoid that relates to Ojai, which is not a far leap from Oxnard.

In Peter Washington's tome, Madame Blavatsky's Baboon, Aldous Huxley is a very featured name.

pages abound, in fact; While Huxley is somewhat rightly associated with topics like LSD and Timothy Leary, in Washington's book, he is almost like a mystical version of Thomas Merton as far as his role in the anti-war movement, of his time.

And of course, one cannot help but think of JFK And The Unspeakable author Jim Douglass, when one thinks of Thomas Merton.

One factoid is that the Theosophical Society owned property in Ojai see pages 276, 278

By 1947 the Society owned five hundred acres at Ojai, the small tract of land bought by Annie Besant had been gradually extended until the Society owned a medium-sized estate in the Valley, and the Order of the Star held its first annual meeting there in 1928. Ojai was now the focus of Krishnamurti, [Lord Maitreya is channelled through Krishnamurti, and Maitreya is considered by some evangelical Christian's and Catholics to be the anti-Christ....no joking Robert]...... Another name of interest is Baron van Pallandt ....see page 317 ie among the Victorian liberal intelligentsia was Bertrand Russell......the house at Ojai became a second home to the itinerant Huxley's,

Final thoughts; What's in a name? Huxley had a contemporary, or friend named Gerald Heard.....

And another strange coincidence is that in 1942 Gerald Heard who was into "experimental communities," was "given the money" to establish a sort of monastery at Trabuco, 60 miles South of L.A., Calif. see page 323

Washington notes, "The building was constructed under the direction of [Christopher] Isherwood's energetic cousin, Felix Greene, who had given up his job with the Quaker service committee, in Philadelphia.

ibid.

If any of you remember Ruth Paine's July 1964 Redbook Interview, the one where she said "she was glad to hear of Ruby's killing Oswald." Jessamyn West did the interviewing, what is, I believe remarkable, is that West was a cousin of Richard Nixon's, who was connected to both California [Whittier College] and Pennsylvania. Nixon's maternal side of the family produced Thomas and Sarah Melhausen from County Kildare, Ireland and were converted to the teachings of George Fox, the founder of the Society of Friends, (Quakers) they settled in Chester Pennsylvania and Anglicanized their name to Milhous.*

and page 8 The Nixon Nobody Knows - Henry D. Spalding

what all this means is not exactly a fact too me, but it seems to connect on some level.

Robert, I think your sense of unease is perfectly understandable. Tha way I look at it (to wit ORION topic purpose and others) is that no matter what anybody believes about these matters the fact remains that there were / are firm adherents as well as persons seeing value in propagating the esoteric. Therefore to enter their world can give valuable insights and perspectives when a subjective approach is avoided.

I just wanted to add a side tidbit in regard to the Camarillo State Mental Hospital....for those unaware of it. It is referred to as Hotel California. In fact, the Eagles song, Hotel California is about this facility and the building on the cover of the album is also of the facility. If interested there is a nice pictorial site at the following link.

Hi Dixie... (if still around)

My girlfriend in 1985 worked at Camarillo (which I visited often) so when you said the Eagles Hotel California was of that facility I was a bit suprised.

I had lived in the So Cal area from 13 to 26 and had driven by the BH Hotel many times.

Quote: The hotel in the album cover is the Beverly Hills Hotel which is frequented by Hollywood stars.

minor thing at best but as I read thru the thread and had lived in these areas I felt it right to post.

David...Yes, I am still here and have been for several years now. I do appreciate your post in regard to Hotel California, being the Beverly Hill Hotel, rather then Camarillo, as I had mentioned. Many do believe it is both about Camarillo and also the album photo. But...now I am believing you are right. Thanks for the enlightenment.
