Dr. John Walsh


Recommended Posts

Dr. Jose Rivera not only expressed foreknowledge of the President's assassination seven months before it occurred, he also expressed foreknowledge of the premature birth and death of son Patrick, in April 1963, four months before it happened.

At first I thought that it was common knowledge that Jackie would probably have a premature birth, as she had such problems previously, as Mr. Phelps points out in another thread.

But he had to have clear access to strategic planners of the assassination around the same time so perhaps his knowledge of Jackie's medical condition could also be the source for his information on the assassination.

In addition, the entire Texas trip centered around the president visiting the Army Medical Center at Fort Hood where Rivera was stationed for many years. When they visited there, the President went out of his way, and off the schedule in order to see a new incubator that he noted could have been able to save his son Patrick if it was available at Otis AFB hospital when he was born.

Although I have not read any reports or interviews with Dr. John W. Walsh about the assassination, he was in the motorcade with Dr. Burkley, the president's physician, and I think it was probably Walsh who gave Jackie a sedative on the AF1 return trip.

According to his NYT's obit Walsh also had an office in Bethesda, where Rivera also had an office at the NIH, so their proximity could have led to their association.

Both Rivera and Walsh were in the Army Medical Corps in Europe during WWII so there could be a traceable association there, especially if they served in the same outfit.

It would be appreciated if anyone can come up with any more information on Dr. John W. Walsh, especially regarding his Bethesda office, any associations with the NIH or Rivera, or any reports on what he said happened in Dallas.

Prolific conservative author William John Bennett – George Bush's "Drug Czar" – claims to be related to Dr. John W. Walsh, and tells us that Walsh's father Dr. Joseph Walsh was the personal physician to Al Smith, keeping politics in the family. http://en.wikipedia....William_Bennett

John W. Walsh, 87, Kennedy Obstetrician

Published: November 25, 2000

http://www.nytimes.c...stetrician.html

Dr. John W. Walsh, an obstetrician who delivered two children of John F. Kennedy and consoled Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy in the hours after her husband's assassination, diedon Maui on Nov. 12. He was 87.

A former resident of Washington, D.C., Dr. Walsh lived in Kaanapali, Maui, and Bethany Beach, Del., after retiring in 1984.

Born on April 10, 1913, in Brooklyn, he graduated from St. John's College and received his medical degree from Long Island University. He did his medical internship and residency at hospitals in New York and was an Army physician in Europe during World War II.

Later, he had a private practice in obstetrics in Washington and Bethesda, Md., and was a clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Georgetown University Medical School.

Jacqueline Kennedy became one of his patients in 1957. In November1960, Dr. Walsh delivered John. F. Kennedy Jr., first son of thepresident-elect, at Georgetown University Hospital.

Dr. Walsh delivered the couple's third child, Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, who was born prematurely in August 1963 at Otis Air Force Base on Cape Cod and died two dayslater.

TIME MAG REPORT ON PATRICK'S DEATH:

THE PRESIDENCY

http://www.time.com/...,894559,00.html

With a Secret Service man at the wheel, thecar carrying Jacqueline Kennedy and her two children turned into the drivewayof a Cape Cod farm where the Kennedys keep their horses. Caroline,5, and her brother, John Jr., 2, scrambled out of the car and raced toward thestables. It was just after 11 a.m.—time for the kids togo riding. They were raring to go, but Jackie did not leave the car to jointhem. She had just had the first twinge of labor pains, more than five weeksprematurely.

So, last week, for the President and his wifebegan an agonizing period that ended with the death of an infant son.

When Jackie told the Secret Service man of herpains, he sprinted for the farmhouse, phoned the Kennedy sum mer home on Squaw Island and asked thatsomeone summon Dr. John Walsh, Jackie's obstetrician, who was"vacationing" on the Cape, while actually onstand-by in the event that Jackie's time might come ahead of schedule. Then theSecret Service man rounded up Caroline and John, took them to the car and spedoff for Squaw Island, eight miles away.

Into Surgery. Dr. Walsh was waiting at the summer home. "I think I'm going to have the baby," said Jackie. Gently, she told Caroline and John that she had to leave, suggested they might have their lunch at "Grampy Joe" Kennedy's place down the beach. Thenshe packed a bag. By 11:20 a.m., Jackie, Dr. Walshand a Secret Service man were in a helicopter bound for Otis Air Force Base hospital, 20 miles away.

The base was well prepared for the crisis.Mrs. Kennedy has a medical record of premature births, and both her children were delivered by caesarean section. If the baby had not been premature, it would have been born at Washington's Walter Reed Hospital. But, just in case,the Air Force had long since readied a ten-room suite (nursery, kitchen, twolounges and six bedrooms) at Otis. By the time Jackie arrived, 200 specialguards had been posted around the 22,000-acre base. Three airmen with Jackie's bloodtype (A1 Rh positive) had been picked several weeks ago, and now stood by togive blood transfusions. At noon one gave two pintsfor Jackie. She had gone into surgery as soon as she arrived.

Not Even a Toothbrush. Meanwhile, Dr. JanetTravell, the White House physician, who was also on a Cape Cod vacation, phoned thePresident in Washington to tell him the news.Within 19 minutes of her call, John Kennedy, half a dozen hastily gatherednewsmen and several White House staffers were aboard Air Force helicopters,bound from the White House lawn to Andrews Air Force Base. No one in the party,including the President, had so much as a toothbrush along.

Since neither of the two presidential Boeing 707 jets was available for the rush trip to Cape Cod,Kennedy took a twinjet, eight-passenger Lockheed Jet-star—an airplane never before used by a President because it lacks the intricate communications facilities that go with the Chief Executive whenever he is in the air. While President Kennedy was still on the way, a ten-member military medical team assisted Dr. Walsh with the caesarean delivery. And at 12:52 p.m., a baby boy (4 Ibs. 10 oz., and 17 in. long)was born to Jackie Kennedy.

The first word to reporters was that motherand child were doing nicely. But in the operating room, doctors knewdifferently. The President's son was suffering from hyaline membrane disease, alung ailment common, and often fatal, to premature babies. Within minutes after the birth, the doctors called for Father John Cahill, an Air Force chaplain, who baptized the baby Patrick Bouvier Kennedy. Then began a desperate fight tosave the infant's life.

Just One Look. The President had been informedof the birth while still airborne. But he, along with his sister, Jean Smith,who heard of the birth over her car radio, were waiting in Jackie's room whenshe came back from surgery. Peering into an incubator (an ultramodern typeknown as an Isolette) in the private nursery, the President saw his tiny,brown-haired son for the first time at 2:30 p.m. Three hours later, hewheeled the incubator up to Jackie's bed, and she saw little Pat for thefirst—and only—time.

The baby obviously needed—and atonce—specialists and special equipment beyond the resources of the Air Force base. Bundled in a blue blanket inside his incubator, the infant was slippedout a back door and into an ambulance for a dash to Children's Medical Center in Boston, more than an houraway. The President flew to Boston, walked grimly past acrowd of well-wishers outside the hospital, donned a white gown and mask to seePatrick. He conferred anxiously with doctors, then left for the Kennedy familysuite at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel.

Later that evening, upon word that his son washolding his own, the President flew back to Squaw Island. There, at noon the next day as he lunched with his mother-in-law, Mrs.Hugh P. Auchincloss, he got an urgent call from the hospital. His son wassinking rapidly. The President tried to call Jackie, but she was asleep. Heleft word that he had gone back to Boston —but told doctors notto tell her why.

At Children's Medical Center, doctors suggested aradical move: put Patrick in a huge hyperbaric pressure chamber that wouldforce oxygen into his lungs (see MEDICINE). This hyperbaric chamber had beenused in 28 open-heart surgery cases during the past 17 months—but never for alung ailment. The President agreed.

Toward Despair. Late thatafternoon, Kennedy wearily returned to the Ritz, called Jackie and told her forthe first time how serious the situation was. Then he made another visit to thehospital, returned to dine alone at the hotel, called before he headed for thehospital again. His brother, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, and KennedyConfidant Dave Powers joined the President there.

As the hours passed, faint hope faded todespair. Patrick was not responding to treatment, and the President decidedthat he must spend the night near his son. He stretched out on a hospital bedset up in a doctors' lounge on the fourth floor. Shortly after 2 o'clock Friday morning, the phone next to his bedrang, and the President was told that there was no longer any hope. ThePresident hurried downstairs, for the next two hours waited restlessly on astraight-backed wooden chair, occasionally rising to peer through a tinyporthole, where he could see five doctors, a nurse and a technician workingdesperately inside the floodlit chamber. Ineluctably, the infant's life ebbedaway. At 4:30 a.m., Press SecretaryPierre Salinger announced: "Patrick Kennedy died at 4:04 a.m. The struggle of the baby boy to keepbreathing was too much for his heart."

On Saturday, the President sat alone in thefirst pew in a tiny chapel inside the residence of Richard Cardinal Gushing,Archbishop of Boston. The baby lay in a tiny white casket, and the Cardinalread a Mass of the Holy Angels.

Patrick Bouvier Kennedy, who lived 39 hoursand twelve minutes, was the first to be buried in a new family plot at Holyhoodcemetery in Brookline, Mass., marked by a singletombstone simply engraved "Kennedy."

She was married three times and gave birth to four children. Gladys and John were born of the first marriage, Bill and my mother, Nancy, were born of a marriage to an Irishman, Dr. Joseph Walsh, a prominent doctor who at nineteen was the youngest person ever to receive a medical degree in the United States. Their marriage ended in a bitter divorce, the reports of which filled the newspapers.

Bill Walsh left his successful practice in internal medicine and founded Project Hope, the hospital ship that brought care to the needy all over the world.

My mother and father should have rounded us up, moved into an apartment Dad could afford, and gone on with our lives. It is hard to know what would have happened — how things would have worked out — but I sometimes wonder. I am sure that the decision to stay was based on many factors — a better life for Bill and me, but also my mother’s emotional dependency on my grandmother, and my father’s nonaggressive approach to life all played a part.

Mrs. WALSH Now Sues Doctor For Money to Meet Debts

Renews Separation Fight Following Dismissal of Cross-Divorce

Mrs. Irene WALSH, of 608 St. Marks avenue, who recently appeared before

Supreme Court Justice DUNNE as complainant and defendant in cross-divorce

actions brought by her and her husband, Dr. Joseph W. WALSH, Brooklyn

physician, today asked Supreme Court Justice CROPSEY to direct the doctor to

pay alimony, pending trial of her suit for separation.

Specifically, she asked $2,111.18 for the payment of pressing household

debts, $250 to enable the immediate purchase of necessary clothing for

herself and her children and $200 per week alimony for the support of

herself and the children, Nancy, 14; William, 11 and John, 17.

Decision was reserved.

TELLS OF INCOME

She claims that Dr. WALSH told her and others that his income exceeds

$60,000 yearly. She says he is medical examiner for the Corporation

Counsel's office, the B.M.T. and the Public Service Corporation of New

Jersey. In spite of this, she claims, he allows her only $5 per day for the

household, the children's expenses alone amounting to that figure.

SEEKS FLAT SUM

Dr. WALSH says that he is willing to support the family, but that he

wants the court to set a flat sum so that he will not be bothered by further

demands. Even now, he adds, he is supporting his wife's mother and father

and his wife's daughter by a previous marriage.

Dr. WALSH further states that the publicity given his marital

difficulties has crippled his medical practice.

In the cross-divorce action, both of which were thrown out by the court,

Dr. WALSH charged misconduct, naming Dr. Stephen SZALAY, young Hungarian

physician, while Mrs. WALSH named Genevieve MOSAAKOWSKI, maid in the WALSH home.

BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE, NEW YORK, TUESDAY, JUNE 16, 1936

Dr. Joseph W. Walsh, former

medical examiner for the city, asked

just iC o Francis G. Hooley in Su-preme-Court- today ko~ erase -the

$150-a-month alimony provision

from the divorce decree granted in

April. 1934, to Mrs. Irene von Nagy

Walsh Szalay. Decision was re-served.

The court was told that Mrs.

Walsh remarried two months after

the decree was signed and Dr. Walsh

contended that she was not entitled

to any alimony after that, although

she made many moves to punish

him for contempt. Not long ago the

Appellate Division saved Dr. Walsh

from Jail by reducing the former

wife's allowance to $15 a week. Her

new husband is Dr. Stephen Szalay.

who was named as corespondent by

Dr. Walsh several years ago when

he brought suit for divorce.

So, this names is wrong, it should be Dr. J W Walsh, but the details match Robert S. Bennett's. Dr. John W. Walsh was almost certainly born John von Nagy.

Bill,

Please choose an easier person of interest, next time. In his book, "In the Ring", Robert S. Bennett does not provide the maiden name of his grandmother, Irene, and he never even mentions the name of her first husband, the father of his mother Nancy's half siblings, Gladys and John W.

John W.'s obit says he was born in 1913. His mother did not marry Dr. Joseph W. Walsh until 3 August, 1916. Since Sunday is a slow night and I grew very interested when you mentioned a connection to William Bennett, I dug deeper into this than I might have.

It seems John W.'s father was Desiderius von Nagy, and that von Nagy died and left his widow Irene to administer his troubled estate. I believe he was an engineer and I suspect Irene was the daughter of another engineer named Benjamin Viola, but I can't confirm it.

Three years before John W. was born, from the Brooklyn, NY entry in the 1910 U.S. census.:

....D'Almeida's background includes a felony. On Oct. 2, 1969, when he was 35, d'Almeida fatally shot Gerald Gerardo, a 20-year-old college student, in a parking garage on E. 82d St.

According to next-day accounts in the Daily News, d'Almeida allegedly told police he had tried to commit suicide, that Gerardo attempted to grab his gun, and that d'Almeida's .32-caliber Spanish Allama automatic fired into Gerardo's chest during a struggle.

The News account said Gerardo was a friend of d'Almeida's. This week's Sports Illustrated quotes d'Almeida as saying it was Gerardo who was trying to kill himself.

D'Almeida was indicted on manslaughter charges but two years later pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of criminally negligent homicide.

D'Almeida was sentenced to five years probation in 1971, the same year the Senate Commerce Committee investigated the firm he worked for, North American Chemical Co. of Paterson.

While d'Almeida was executive vice president at North American, Congress probed the chemical company's hiring of a sales firm run by the late Eugene Catena, a New Jersey Mafia figure suspected of trying to strongarm the A&P chain into buying the company's detergent, according to the New York Times.

D'Almeida was never accused of wrongdoing. The Queens district attorney believed the murder of two A&P store managers and 16 arson fires at the chain's stores were connected to Catena's efforts to force A&P to buy the detergent, the Times reported.

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, d'Almeida moved into the real-estate business, where his past came back to haunt him.

State Attorney General Robert Abrams suspended d'Almeida from engaging in his co-op conversion business for two years in 1983, after d'Almeida failed to reveal his felony conviction, a "fraudulent practice," according to state regulations.

In the late '70s and '80s, he built the Gauchos into one of the strongest amateur teams in the country, funding it through the not-for-profit Teamwork Foundation, Inc.

D'Almeida named the team after cowboys in his native Argentina, and he has said he related to the tough, poor kids in Harlem and the Bronx. One of the group's legal filings claims he grew up in East Harlem.

In fact, d'Almeida grew up rich. His father was a Portuguese baron who died in 1947. When d'Almeida was 14, he moved to the U.S., after his mother married Paul Felix (Piggy) Warburg, a member of one of America's most powerful banking f amilies.

D'Almeida attended Yale, and his family ties brought him into contact with America's rich and famous.

Those ties show up on the board of directors of the Teamwork Foundation. Along with Bronfman and his brother Matthew, the board has included the composer Leonard Bernstein, who died in 1990.

Teamwork's board of advisers has included Lauren Bacall, Lou Carnesecca, Jeffrey Lyons and Willis Reed.

There's no indication any members of the board of directors or the board of advisers are involved in wrongdoing.....

....D'Almeida was cutting back on tuition but not on his Gaucho salary. According to Teamwork Foundation tax filings, he paid himself $100,000 in 1993, the last year for which records are available, giving himself a $50,000 raise from '92.

....establish the pattern of the evidence that other witnesses are going to follow after you. I say we do appreciate the cooperation of you and your lawyer in answering all these, and it may be that when we get through with this and analyze this, we may have to call you back but we will let you know in due time so that it would be necessary to answer some further questions probably.

Mr. Sobol. All right.

The Chairman. Senator Hartke, do you have anything.

Senator Hartke. No, thank you, Mr. Chairman.

The Chairman. I don't believe we have anything else.

Mr. Gray. Mr. Sobol, did you, on July 30, 1965, send a telegram to the A. & P. Co. stating that: "North American Chemical Corp. hereby withdraws its bid and offer to sell detergents to the A. & P. Tea Co., kindly return all documents, papers, and samples heretofore submitted. Nathan S. Sobol, President." Did you send that telegram ?

Mr. Sobol. Do you have a record that I sent that ?

Mr. Gray. I have a copy that I would like to submit.

Mr. Sobol. What is the date of that ?

Mr. Gray. July 30, 1965.

The Chairman. Where is it from, Paterson, NJ ?

Mr. Gray. To Thomas Dempsey.

Mr. Sobol. I think we were advised to do that.

Mr. Gray. Why ? You were advised by whom ?

Mr. Sobol. I think John T. Cahill told us to withdraw the product.

Mr. Gray. Mr. Cahill advised you ?

Mr. Sobol. Yes, sir.

Mr. Gray. Mr. Cahill was an attorney for the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co.?

Mr. Sobol. That is right.

Mr. Gray. Why was he advising you, was he also your attorney ?

Mr. Sobol. Mr. Cahill is a personal friend of John L. Loeb and if I remember correctly, that when we saw Mr. Cahill, I think it was his advice to just withdraw and I think he told Mr. d'Almeida to let things 4 or 5 months or so, I just don't remember.

Mr. Gray. Whv did they advise him to do that ?

Mr. Sobol. This was in 1965 ?

Mr. Gray. Yes, why ? Did he say why he wanted you to do this?

Mr. Sobol. I just don't remember now. I don't remember what the details were on that.

Mr. Gray. Did this have anything to do with the fact that people at the A. & P. had — did you have a meeting with them at one point when they said something about North American being associated with organized crime?

Mr. Sobol. Yes.

Mr. Gray. And you became very angry about that ?

Mr. Sobol. I think this was after that. ....

John L. Loeb Sr. Dies at 94; Investor and Philanthropist

By ERIC PACE

Published: December 09, 1996

John Langeloth Loeb Sr., a leading member of the investment community who was long the head of the Wall Street firm of Loeb, Rhoades & Company, a predecessor of Shearson Lehman/American Express, died yesterday at his Upper East Side home in Manhattan. He was 94 and also had homes in Purchase, N.Y., and Lyford Cay, Nassau, the Bahamas. .....he had been going daily to his office in midtown Manhattan until about eight weeks ago, said his son John Langeloth Loeb Jr.....

.....In 1978, Loeb, Rhoades merged with Hornblower, Weeks, Noyes & Trask to form Loeb Rhoades, Hornblower & Company, and Mr. Loeb became co-chairman of the combined firm's finance committee. In 1979, Loeb Rhoades, Hornblower, with severe back-office problems, merged with Shearson Hayden Stone to form Shearson Loeb Rhoades.

In 1981, Shearson Loeb Rhoades was acquired by the American Express Company, becoming Shearson/American Express. That firm in turn acquired Lehman Brothers, Kuhn Loeb, forming the American Express subsidiary, which no longer exists in that form.

Over the years, Loeb, Rhoades had remained to a considerable extent a family affair, with John Loeb's partners including his brother, Henry; his son, John Loeb Jr., and two nephews. Even in his 70's, Mr. Loeb remained the dominant personality inside the firm while exercising great influence on the outside as well. One widely quoted cartoon depicted him as telling his wife, ''No, I didn't have a hard time at the office, but everybody else at Loeb, Rhoades did.''....

....John Loeb's son and namesake was also interested in finance, and for a time John Loeb Sr. hoped John Loeb Jr. would also lead the firm. But the son's promotions generated controversy within the firm, and after serving as president from 1971 to 1973, he became a limited partner and then Ambassador to Denmark.

The elder John Loeb had a longstanding interest in politics. In 1964, he was an organizer of a blue-ribbon business group, the National Independent Committee for President Johnson and Senator Hubert H. Humphrey, who was Lyndon B. Johnson's running mate that year. In 1973, Mr. Loeb pleaded no contest in Federal court to three charges of having disguised campaign contributions to Senator Humphrey's 1972 Presidential primary campaign.

Pursuing their interest in public affairs, Mr. Loeb and his wife, the former Frances Lehman, entertained senators, mayors, governors and other political figures in their 14-room East Side home. ...

....He was variously a director of Dome Petroleum, Allied Chemical, Seagram, General Instrument, Arlen Realty, the Empire Trust Company, the Rome Cable Company, the National Radiator Company and other companies; a governor of the New York Stock Exchange and a member of the advisory committee of the Bank of New York....

....In addition to his son, John Jr., of Purchase, Mr. Loeb is survived by another son, Arthur Lehman Loeb of Manhattan; three daughters, Ann Loeb Bronfman of Washington, who is Arthur's twin, Judith Loeb Chiara of Purchase and Deborah Loeb Brice of London; 14 grandchildren, including Edgar Bronfman Jr., the president of Seagram; a brother, Henry A., of Manhattan; and a sister, Margaret Loeb Kempner of Purchase, and numerous great-grandchildren.

There is much more detail to make what is included in this post actually interesting enough to excuse its length. I started this tangent of a post on this thread because I noticed Paul Warburg's tie to operation Hope. I plan to link this post as background to a post emphasizing the coincidences and connections to some of the people I posted about in this thread - http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=14879&pid=236721&st=0entry236721
