I was just looking through them last night. It gives you a bit of an overview of the whole Z-film controversy, with Livingstone's articles and the articles arguing against him.

Jerry Rose's journal was an indispensable source for keeping current with the case during the eighties and nineties.

Professor Rose deserves a lot of credit; The Third and Fourth Decade provided a very important avenue for cutting edge research.

I remember eagerly anticipating each issue that arrived in the distinctive mailing envelope every two months or so.

I vividly recall when Professor Rose announced a transition from the third to the fourth decade of research and the continuation of his journal. It kept a modicum of hope alive knowing that researchers were still actively pursuing the truth.

In Volume 1, Issue 1 of The Fourth Decade, November 1993, W. Anthony Marsh foretold the future of research in his article: Join the on-line community of researchers with your computer. He wrote:

INTERNET limited access network. Many colleges, universities and research labs provide access to InterNet. Some commercial services provide access to InterNet, but costs vary. If your site carries news groups, ask if it can get the news group called alt.conspiracy.jfk and what special software and manual you might need in order to receive and send messages. File exchange is possible if you have the right software, such as UUENCODE or UUDECODE.

The article is interesting in its entirety. http://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/...mp;relPageId=39

Thanks to Wayne Rhodes for the link.

I was deeply honored to co-produce, with Jerry Rose and George Michael Evica, The Third/Fourth Decade's second research conference, staged in Providence, Rhode Island.

My friend Jerry is the most humble of men, yet his journal remains, for many of us, by far the most professionally edited and hugely informative scholarly publication ever to focus on the assassination.

Damning by faint praise? Perhaps. But I would most favorably measure Jerry's work against any other publication of its kind -- the scholarly journal -- in any subject area.

Jerry never played favorites. His editorial standards were carved in stone, and even his closest friends could not expect their submissions to gain "automatic" approval for publication.

I'll not soon forget presenting papers at the first and second Rose conferences -- on assassination-related literary fiction and certain "problems" within the critical community respectively. And the day Jerry and I spent with Gerald Patrick Hemming in Dallas, culminating in JFK Lancer's much talked about Hemming Panel (Rose, John Newman, Gordon Winslow [moderator] and I trying, with little success but great enjoyment, to break down the master storyteller) was one for the books. Literally.

Our community has not overcome the loss of Jerry's journal. What I wouldn't give to have him back in the wars.

The Third Decade is now online as well:

http://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/...o?docSetId=1116

The Journals section of the Mary Ferrell site now has back issues of both the Third and Fourth Decade, the Kennedy Assassination Chronicles, and Dealey Plaza Echo. There are many great articles in all of them IMHO.

If people are interested in other journals and know who to go to for permissions/rights issues, I'd be happy to hear. In the case of KAC and the Dealey Plaza Echo, I got explicit permissions. In the case of Third/Fourth Decade, I was informed "through the grapevine" that Jerry Rose considered the journal public domain.

Rex,

Many thanks for all you do.

I was just going to email you to thank you for posting Slawson's Mexico City Report, which I found amazing, when you also post the docs from Oswald in New Orlean (also amazing) and Jerry Rose's fine review, together an encyclopeida of extremely important information.

To think if everybody had all this infomation a decade ago how much further along we'd be.
