Prayer Man Lee Harvey Oswald

Prayer Man The Movie 2 years later

Yesterday two years ago I uploaded The Prayer Man movie, it has managed to be seen just under 108,000 times. That averages roughly just over 1,000 views per week! An amazing result for which I have to thank everyone who took the effort to go through it all. It is a lot of info to digest in 100 minutes.

I have said that there will be a follow up and there is still none, but I will start working on it over the next few weeks and then it will be released in shorter instalments as 2 years later there is even more information to divulge.

Thanks again for watching and sharing!!!

 

Billy Lovelady the Doorway Man

Here is an article from the New York Herald Tribune which has been quoted from many times in various articles, here is the chance to read the whole article and its pix in full. It was published in the NYHT May 24th 1964. Great read actually, and this was pubbed before the Warren Report was issued.

 

Add on Dec 13th:

From Larry Sneed’s No More Silence

In May 1964, while the Warren Report was still being assembled, Don Bonafede, a reporter for the now defunct New York Herald Tribune, called me from here in town and said that he was in Dallas to do a story on a very controversial photograph I had made at the time the President was assassinated. All he wanted to know, he said, was the information I had already given the
authorities, and he would be satisfied with that information. I told him that no authorities had questioned me, including the Warren Commission people. “That’s my story!” he shouted. Of course, he was referring to the picture showing the questionable person, story set the authorities to work, and eventually even the FBI sent two men to visit and interview me. What had happened was that Bonafede’s story was picked up by columnists all across the country who then began asking if other witnesses had been overlooked like the photographer who was only fifteen feet from the limousine when Kennedy was killed.

TSBD drawings-3rd-7th floor

Final set for now, thanks again to Gary Murr for these.

These are drawings of the 3rd to the 7th floor, there is a page with measurements of the front steps and the pavement and a page with notes on the TSBD building’s height in comparison to the DalTex building and The Records Building.

All these drawings shed more light about the TSBD dimensions, way more than the WR versions.

More first floor drawings TSBD

Once again thanks to Gary Murr I can present another set of drawings of the 1st floor of the Texas School Book Depository.

These are made in March 1964,  the majority of it by SA Eugene Paul Arey, classified by the FBI as a “visual exhibits specialist.”

Gary spends an entire chapter on the FBI model and its construction in the first volume of his Connally trilogy, a chapter titled “Model Behaviour.” “I get the impression, indeed memoranda states as such, that the intent of the model was for the benefit of individuals who were to be called to testify to the WC regarding various aspects of the assassination event, in particular members of the DPD and witnesses/employees of the TSBD. However, I believe the display of the model became too cumbersome and so as a trade off the WC asked the FBI to produce detailed diagrams of the TSBD again for use during testimony sessions, such as Baker and Truly – mark where you were etc. etc. The model was moved to the “exhibits room”,  a singular room in the VFW  Building, access to which was controlled by J. Lee Rankin’s personal secretary, Julia T. Eide. She generated a “log book” in which anyone who visited the room – and she had the only key – had to sign the key in and out, note the times, identify themselves and anyone who was with them, etc. To me it is one of the more important documents that survives and I suspect very few people are aware of it’s existence. Indeed, I argue that a lot of what occurred as far as planning out the eventual SBT and in particular the eventual WC staff reconstruction in Dallas in May of 1964 took place in this room with the model over the weekend of March 14 – 16, 1964. FWIW

Thank you Gary, once again.

And there’s more to come ;)

TSBD 2nd floor drawings

Special thanks once again to Gary Murr.

If anyone feels inclined to build a 3D model then do let me see the end result :)

These are  detailed drawings made by members of the FBI Exhibits Section of various areas of the TSBD building. They were made in the first week of December, 1963, and were used in conjunction with the eventual construction of the FBI model of Dealey Plaza, TSBD, etc

These are of very nice detail and shows how short the area was from the first door to the lunch room door. So Oz was standing in the opening of the lunch room and Baker was inside with the door behind him shut, and then Truly leant in……….right.

Debunking The 2nd Floor Lunchroom Encounter one year later.

Just over a year ago, after 4 attempts! Rob Clark and I managed to do a good chat on the 2nd floor fugezi.

It ended up being the No.1 listened to show with up to this point with 1,049 Plays and 3,967 Downloads. Just over 5,000 listens. This amount was way above the average show ratings and to this day it is the No.1 show being way ahead in front of the No. 2 show. It is just a crying shame the LGP is no more. 

One year on I would have done some things different. The essay was only out by a month and since then it has been updated twice with a lot of extra information.

You can listen to it HERE.

Meanwhile I will try and make a new interactive presentation on video very soon.
