Mary Pinchot Meyer


Recommended Posts

I've done what research I could on Mary Pinchot Meyer including the following:

- Katharine the Great by Deborah Davis

- Washinton post [10 articles mainly devoted to the murder and trial]

- Flashbacks by Timothy Leary

- A very private woman by Nina Burleigh

- Internet research [Ramparts, etc.]

- The Assassinations by Probe

- CIA using the JFK Freedom of Information Act [7 pages of completely redacted material dated 1951, save for 2 useless paragraphs]

The FBI has requested that I include proof that she is deceased before they will provide me any information - I have the obituary from the Washington Post also, but haven't yet taken the time to reply.

I would like to know what anyone else may have available, or any other potential leads. Here are some of the hi-level facts:

- Mistress to JFK

- Wife to Cord Meyer of CIA

- Friends with Bill Bradley of Washington post

- Potentially was seeking to influence peace and change through the experimental use of LSD - may have had a session with JFK

- Murdered allegedly by Roy Crump Jr., who was not convicted in what appeared similar to a Sirhan Sirhan MKULTRA / Manchurian Candidate targetted killing.

- Diary/Sketchbook with notes collected, sorted, documented by James Jesus Angleton

- Diary/Sketchbook burned by friends

I also understand that Robert Morrow wrote about her, but I have yet to read his account [paraphrased in "A Private Woman," and understand that his credibility was deemed unreliable by the HSCA.

I also know that she most likely is mentioned in material on James Jesus Angleton [Master Spy, or something like that], but don't anticipate learning much from this source.

Was she working for the CIAs MKULTRA project? If she was the victim of a targetted 'assassination, why? What did she know that would have made her a threat?

From "Flashbacks" by Timothy Leary, J.P. Tarcher, Inc., Los Angeles, copyright 1983, page 194.

"I could hardly understand her [Mary]. She was either drunk or drugged or overwhelmed with grief. Or all three. 'They couldn't control him anymore. He was changing too fast.'

Long pause. Hysterical crying. I spoke reassurance. She sobbed. 'They've covered everything up. I gotta come see you. I'm afraid. Be careful.'

The line went dead. Worried, I could do nothing."

I imagine you are aware of the articles by Ben Hayes, Deborah Davies and G. J. Krupey on this case:

Maybe you would like to post something on the Mary Pinchot Meyer case in the Death of Witnesses thread.
