Secret Service agent Ernest "Ernie" Olsson, Jr.- passed away 7/1/2019

I spoke to Olsson briefly- he said he didn't talk about those days. The only thing he confirmed was that he did speak to the HSCA.

 

He grew up in Ames and graduated from Ames High School in 1950. Following graduation he continued his education at Drake University obtaining his Bachelor’s degree in 1955.

Ernest met the love of his life Beverly May Scheuermann in 1951 and the couple was married in Ames, on June 15, 1952. The couple then lived in California, Arizona and Missouri and settled in Virginia where they raised their four children.

Ernest was a Veteran, serving in the United States Air Force from 1955 until 1958. Upon returning from active duty, Ernest continued to serve his country working for the United States Secret Service where he protected Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy and Johnson, retiring in 1981.

Secret Service agent Larry Newman- passed away 12/21/2017

I spoke to Newman at length a couple times in 2004 and he was a valuable source of information. He was one of the four agents who spoke to Seymour Hersh for The Dark Side of Camelot.

After college, Larry completed basic training in the Air Force Reserves and was honorably discharged so that he could join the Washington State Department of Game. In 1960 he was appointed as an agent with the U.S. Secret Service. He served several prominent figures over the course of his 23-year career including service on the White House detail in Washington D.C. during the Kennedy administration, during which time he met his wife, Susan. Larry also worked with presidents Ford and Carter
