Myra DaRouse Larue - Oswald's (Harvey) 8th grade home room teacher (and girls physical education teacher). When Oswald arrived in Myra's homeroom at Beauregard Jr. High in NO, during "basketball season," he told her that he wanted to be called "Harvey." Myra described Harvey as short, slight, and without an "ounce of fight" in him. Myra recalled the day when a piano fell onto Harvey. She took him to the Monte Lepre Clinic, on Canal Street, and then to his home on Exchange Alley. At this time, according to WC documents and WC testimony of Myrtle and Julian Evans (close friends of MO), LHO and his tall, nice-looking mother were living in one of their apartments on St. Marys Street. After the end of the 8th grade Myra never again saw Harvey. When I showed Myra a photograph of Oswald (Lee) in Life Magazine (9th grade-taken in October, 1954), she looked at the photo a long time and then said, "That's not Harvey. That's not the boy I knew from my homeroom. I don't know who this boy is."

Frank Kudlaty - According to school records, published in the WC volumes, Oswald left Ft. Worth in the summer of 1952 and moved to NYC where he attended all of the 7th grade and the first semester of the 8th grade. He then moved to NO where he completed junior high and briefly attended Warren Easton High School. From the summer of 1952 thru August, 1956 Oswald was never in Ft. Worth. Frank Kudlaty was the assistant principle of Stripling Jr High in Fort Worth in November, 1963. Frank was called by his boss at 8:00 am on Saturday, the morning after the assassination. He was told to go to school, get Lee Harvey Oswald's school records from storage, and give them to the FBI. Frank located records for both Robert and Lee Harvey Oswald. He briefly looked at Oswalds record and remembered that he had not attended a full semester at Stripling. When the FBI arrived Frank asked the agents if they wanted both Robert and Lee Harvey Oswald's records. One of the agents said, "No, we just want Lee Harvey Oswald's records." They left with the records and to this day the FBI claims to have no documentation relating to Stripling or Mr. Kudlaty. Whoever directed the FBI to gather, and later destroy, (Harvey) Oswald's junior high school records collected within 20 hours of the assassination, was responsible for the assassination.

- Louis Marzialle - Video
Louis Marzialle - store manager at Dolly Shoe, where Harvey Oswald worked full time in the spring of 1955 (while Lee Oswald attended 9th grade at Beauregard Jr High in New Orleans without missing a single day of school, according to WC records). Louis said Oswald was very short and non-descript. He remembered that he fired Oswald on the day that his first son was born.
- Linda Faircloth - Video
Linda Faircloth - current President of the Pfisterer Dental Laboratory in New Orleans. She spoke with owners and employees who remembered that (Harvey) Oswald worked at Pfisterer in 1957-58 (not in 1956 as reported by the WC). Palmer McBride, co-worker and friend of Oswald, was with him the day that Sputnik was launched by the Russians (Oct 4, 1957-see WC #1386). McBride took Oswald to several meetings of the New Orleans Amateur Astronomy association in early 1958, where he was remembered by Walter Gehrke, William Wulf, James Vance, and others. McBride visited Oswald and his short, heavy-set mother at their apartment in the Hotel Senator, across the street from the dental lab. He and Oswald attended the Boris Godounov in NO, which played only on Oct 10 and Oct 12, 1957. During this time tall, husky Lee Oswald was in the Marines in Japan, while his tall, nice looking mother worked (and was photographed) at Pauls Shoe Store in Ft. Worth, TX.
- Francetta Schubert - Video
Francetta Schubert - Fran was a student at Stripling Jr. High in Ft. Worth, TX in the 1954-55 school year. In the fall of 1954 she and her friends watched (Harvey) Oswald walk across the street to his home at 2220 Thomas Place every day for lunch (student Doug Gann remembered Oswald playing basketball on the schoolground). Fran remembered that Oswald was a year ahead of her and did not attend a full semester. While Harvey Oswald was attending Stripling, the tall, husky Lee Oswald was attending Beauregard Jr. High in New Orleans with a near-perfect attendance record. Ed Voebel took the infamous "classroom" photo of Lee Oswald in October, 1954 that appeared in Life Magazine in which he appears to have a missing front tooth. Voebel told the WC that he thought that Oswald lost a tooth in a fight with Johnny Neumeyer
- Dr. Milton Kurian - Video
Dr. Milton Kurian - President of the American Psychiatric Association in the 1950's, Dr. Kurian interviewed (Harvey) Oswald in 1953 in New York City. He remembered that Oswald was very short, slight, and soft-spoken. I showed him the "Bronx Zoo" photo of a small (Harvey) Oswald taken in the fall of 1952, which he identified as the boy that he had interviewed. This is the same photo that, when shown by the Warren Commission to (Lee) Oswald's half-brother John Pic said, "I do not recognize that as my brother." This photo, when compared to Lee Oswald's 6th grade classroom photo from Ft. Worth, shows the distinct difference between these 2 twelve-year-old boys.
