Key sources on the “Judyth” storyinclude:
– and aresponse to critics written in November2003.
Judyth’s inclusion of David Atlee Phillips as Oswald’s CIA “handler” apparently stems fromsomething Luis Urrea, one of her English professors, told her. Urrea had been told by SeanPhillips, nephew of David Atlee Phillips, that the latter made a deathbed confession of havingbeen Oswald’s Mexico City handler. Urrea passed that information along to Judyth, withoutnecessarily vouching for its accuracy, and was a bit surprised when it appeared in her account.

Judyth clearly got one piece of nonsense from Haslam. She points out that Mary Sherman wasmurdered on July 21, 1964, and says this was the day “when the Warren Commission came to gether testimony. . . . They killed her the same day. You can imagine how many people wouldn’teven say a word after that.” In fact, the Warren Commission didn’t even know that MarySherman existed. She entered the world of conspiracy theorizing due to Jim Garrison’sinvestigation. Haslam pointed out the coincidence of dates in a 1996 article, and Judyth repeated it, upping the ante with a claim that the Warren Commission was going to interview Sherman.
1. Two sheets of stationery from the Reily coffee company.
I have a library of books, some of which are on display in my living room. Many moreare in boxes. My daughter, Sarah, has rummage through all my books. She or another ofmy five children even took the book Lee wrote in to school and put yellow magic markerunderscoring in it! That’s how useless I thought Lee’s handwriting would be – becausethere was no signature. I am just glad the book wasn’t lost or damaged more than it was.
3. An ink bottle Lee supposedly used to fill his fountain pen
OK, so Judyth has all the “evidence” – including things such as the “green glass” (see above)with her. But there is one class of evidence she was much less careful with.

But long before that – for three and a half decades, in fact – I have never let the evidencebe out of my possession, and it has always been at my side whenever I entered or left anycountry (as an anthropologist – B.S. degree in anthropology, with additional graduatehours and lots of field work – and as the wife of a geologist-mathematician, I have livedout of country and also traveled extensively ) .
