THE MEYERS PINCHOT MYSTERY


Recommended Posts

On December 18, 1956, Cord's nine-year-old son, Michael, was hit by a car on the curve of highway near their house and killed. It was the same spot where the family's golden retriever had been killed two years earlier. The tragedy briefly brought the couple together. [McLean Boy Dies in Dash Across Road The Washington Post and Times Herald Dec 19, 1956. pg. C7, 1 pgs An 8-year-old McLean, Va., boy was killed yesterday by a car on Chain Bridge rd. at Langley]. However, in 1958, Mary filed for divorce.

Was this a hit and run? I need this article and others about this incident. Who was the driver? Could this have been the KGB teaching the Meyers a lesson not to mess with the revolution by subsidizing socialist non-communist labor unions? The Cold War was more like the Lukewarm War if you ask me.

Now that I think did the KGB strike a response cord in Meyer??

  Hi AJ.

'Charles L. Booth' was the driver. There's a piece on it in 'A very private woman' by Nina Burleigh on pages 144-146. I'll send you the Post article via your email address. Not a hit and run.

Any connection to Clare Booth(e) Luce (serious), or John Wilkes Booth (not so serious). In fact Clare's daughter died in a car accident in 1944?....

hmmm....

MR WEBERMAN

Your photograph is not in good order.

The rest of us members all attach real photographs of ourselves for legitimizing purposes.

The suggestion that the KGB hit Cord Meyer's son in 1956 is unsubstantiated.

It is more probable that Mr. Cord Meyer's ties to international pacifist efforts made him a target of his employer, the CIA.
