Under the LHO topic, information relative to LHO & his cousin PGT Beauregard was provided.

This kinship came about as a result of the marriage of "Bella" Claverie to a member of the Beauregard family.

What was not said was that this was the second marriage for Bella Clavarie.

2. Bella Clavarie

Father: Bertrand Clavarie

Mother: Clara Bordelon

Please forgive the manner in which this frequently jumps around. These items are being presented mostly as they come from my boxes full of research papers.

Those who have truely researched the JFK assassination should easily make the connections. If not, just ask.

3. Max Clark/DeMohrenschildt/the Oswald family

WC Testimony of Max Clark

Mr. Liebeler: Would you state your full name please.

Mr. Clark: Max Clark

Mr. Liebeler: You are an attorney?

Mr. Clark: Yes

Mr. Liebeler: A member of the Bar of Texas

Mr. Clark: Yes

Mr. Liebeler: Any other State?

Mr. Clark: No, I am licensed to practice in the Federal courts and American Bar Association.

Max Clark was intervieewed by the FBI after the assassination. He was on a first name basis with the Fort Worth FBI agent who interviewed him (Earl Haley, 8 H 349). This may be because, along with having been a security officer for the Convair Division of General Dynamics (8 H 352), he was, according to one witness, connected with the FBI (9H 235).

WC Testimony of George DeMohrenschildt

Mr. Jenner: The Clarks?

Mr. DeMohrenschildt: I know them very well

Mr. Jenner: Max Clark

Mr. DeMohrenschildt: Yes, Max and his wife Gall.

On December 3, 1956, an account was opened in the name of Mr. or Mrs. Robert L. Oswald, 4910 East Lancaster, Fort Worth, Texas, with a deposit of $376.13.

At the time the account was opened, Robert L. Oswald indicated employment at "Convair".

Assuming that everyone is familiar with Chamberlain/Hunt Academy and the fact that LHO & Brothers spent some time there, all research into this school is well worth the effort.

The death of Joseph Jones of Tulane, as provided earlier, certainly was nothing new for the South.

Jeremiah Chamberlain, co-founder of the Presbyterian Chamberlain/Hunt academy was also assassinated in the front of his home due to his anti-slavery philosophy.

Since there will be considerable discussion on Chamberlain/Hunt Academy later on, research into it's history is well worthwhile.
