JAGGARS CHILES STOVALL


Recommended Posts

Robert (or anmyone else). I wonder if you know or can find out if the Stovall, as in Jaggars -Chiles -Stovall is related to Stovall, Richard S. Detective with the Homicide Bureau, City Police Department?

Thanks.

Antti

Antti,

I don't think they are related but there is this. Tolbert F. Stovall (one of the founders of Jaggars Chiles Stovall) had a son named Robert L. Stovall.

Amongst other things (including being elected President of Jaggars Chiles Stovall in 1960), Robert was a co-owner of a company called Grinnan Development Co. The other owner was Lewis P. Grinnan Jr. who was the brother of Joseph Grinnan.

1. They were not related.

2. Regarding Grinnan Development Co. and Robert Stovall being a co-owner, were are you coming up with this information?

Mike,

A fair amount of digging is required and lots of hours spent going over the various press reports of the day.

Mike,

I will have a hunt around my storage facility. My filing system is about as unorganized as it could be.

Anyway, I only came across the possible Robert L. Stovall connection when I was researching the Grinnan family.

That aside, a couple of questions for you. Do you know if Robert Stovall was involved with a local capital fund raising campaign for Yale University and can you tell me who J. Corder Rogers is?

Thanks. I'd appreciate that.

As far as the Yale University fund raising...I never heard him mention it or any connection to the school.

Also, I have never heard the name J. Corder Rogers...the fact that I have never heard of him could mean a lot or nothing at all. Who is he?

As you can tell from my bio, I work at Southern Methodist University ("SMU"). When I moved to Dallas in 1999 I got a job at SMU's Center for Media & Instructional Technology ("CMIT"). The CMIT media librarian at the time (introduced to me as "Judy Childs") was in fact Judy Chiles, wife of Bill Chiles, part owner of Jaggars Chiles Stovall.

Well, you know, when I found that out I just went through the roof! So at one of our Chritmas parties, I approached Bill (who is a sweet guy) and I asked him point blank about Lee Harvey Oswald working for his company.

Bill stated that Oswald was generally a crappy employee, that we wore thick black military-type boots, was surly, and to the concern of Bill at least, walked around speaking in Russian.

Since they did some work for the US Government, Bill was concerned about this guy enough to call the FBI. Bill told the FBI that this guy named Oswald was clunking around in military boots, speaking in Russian and making a nuisance of himself. Bill said the FBI put him on hold, and then came back with (and I am paraphrasing here) "...yeah, we know about Oswald, he's okay."

For what it's worth.

Edit:

Note "Robert Littleton Stovall, age 92" listed as an executive of Jaggers-Chiles-Stovall. They need to update their information. He died in 2007 at the age of 87...

Looks like James was confusing a Robert L. Stovall, (born in 1932 in Mississippi, graduated from Yale University, lived in Dallas & Chicago) with Robert Littleton Stovall born in 1920 (in Dallas, according to a genealogical website), died in Dallas in 2007). http://webcache.goog...n&ct=clnk&gl=us

Scroll down to the bottom of the list to find both of them highlighted in different colors.

FWIW, here's the obituary and some information about the other guy, the Yale-graduate "Robert L. Stovall":
