Kennedy locations in Dallas and Fort Worth

DSC03694

September, 2013. With a rented car I visited all locations in Dallas and Fort Worth related to the crime of the century, the assassination of John F. Kennedy. I made lots of pictures; fifty of them are on this page. In 2009 I travelled to New Orleans, where Lee Harvey Oswald lived. The photos of that journey can be found […]

I did years of research into the trip Oswald made from Minsk to Texas through my own country, the Netherlands, and on the days aboard the ship SS Maasdam, from Rotterdam to Hoboken, New Jersey. Saw photos and documents, came in contact with people who were on this ship with Lee Harvey Oswald. by PERRY […]

Oswald-related places to visit when hungry and thirsty

Lee Harvey's

This september I visited New Orleans and Dallas. Walking around in these city’s makes a man hungry and thirsty. This is an enumeration of places to visit when in need for a beer or a burger. All places have a relation to key players of the events in November, 1963. Did you know The Ozzie Rabbit Lodge, […]

Visiting Marina

DSC03238

“Get out of my property,” hissed the 75-year-old Kenneth Porter with restrained anger. He was clearly not enamored of this unannounced visit from the Netherlands. The second husband of Marina Oswald Porter was assisted by a loud barking, medium-sized dog. “Get out of my property, didn’t you see the warning sign at the beginning of […]

Ruth Paine House Museum opens

Ruth Paine

I visited the Ruth Paine house in Iriving, Dallas, last september. It was empty inside. Well, empty… A table, some chairs and a painting were left by the last occupants. Two months after my quick visit, the house is a home again. The Ruth Paine House Museum opens to public on November 6. by PERRY […]

Oswald on SS Maasdam IV

maasdam1

Received a mail from someone who was interested in information I shared in the period 2007-2010, on the trip Lee Harvey Oswald made from Rotterdam (the Netherlands, my country) to the United States. Oswald travelled with his wife Marina and their baby, June. They left Minsk and travelled by train through Moscow, Poland and Germany, […]

1026 N. Beckley Avenue: visiting Pat Hall

pat hall

I rang the bell of 1026 North Beckley Avenue in the afternoon of September 10, last month, while visiting Dallas. After a while a middle-aged woman looked through the glass. She wasn’t feeling well, but if I wanted to wait for 20 minutes, she was willing to dress up for a short interview. Great news: […]

Magazine St, New Orleans: where Oswald lived

Home Oswald, 4905 Magazine Street, New Orleans

I visited New Orleans in 2009 and was confused: the address of Lee Harvey Oswald was 4905 Magazine Street, but I couldn’t find a house with that number. Walking from the corner of Magazine and Upperline Street, you’ll find the odd numbers 4901 (uninhabited for years), 4903, 4907 and 4911 easily on your right. Where […]

The famous backyard photos

oswald_backyard

This month 50 years ago, the famous backyard photographs were made by Marina Oswald. The photos show her husband Lee Harvey Oswald standing in his backyard, with a holstered pistol strapped to his waist, holding a Mannlicher-Carcano rifle and two communist newspapers, The Militant and The Worker. The authenticity of the pictures have always been the subject of discussion. […]

Lee Oswald in Berlin

Ostbahnhof Berlin: wat did Oswald do?

The most remarkable note in Oswald’s address book, in my opinion, is the above on. Yes: this book, found among Oswald’s belongings after the assassination of JFK, was much more than just a list of names and addresses. What do we see here? Lee Harvey Oswald wrote down ‘West Berlin – F.R.G. Tempelhofer Damm. Lee H.’ He made […]

You can always wake me up for remarkable details on the Kennedy case. Like this one – I found the image above in one of Robert Groden’s books. by PERRY VERMEULEN John F. Kennedy was killed at 12:30 pm. Ten minutes later, Oswald took city bus 1213, driven by Cecil McWatters, aiming for Marsalis Street. […]

250 Mathenesserlaan

250 Mathenesserlaan, Rotterdam

250 Mathenesserlaan is an address that not many researchers will recognize immediately. Its an interesting place, though, the house with the yellow stripes behind me, on the picture made in 2008. I was interviewed here after the publication of my first book, where I focussed mainly on the weekend Lee Harvey Oswald spent in Rotterdam, the […]

Secret laboratory

In 2007 Edward Haslam published Dr. Mary’s Monkey, an updated account on the death of Mary Sherman. Haslam believes that Sherman was involved in carrying out secret research into developing a vaccine to prevent an epidemic of soft-tissue cancers caused by polio vaccine contaminated with SV-40. This work included using a linear particle accelerator located […]

Lee Harvey Oswald lived here several months in the summer of 1963, on 4905 Magazine Street.

Trade Mart New Orleans

The corner of Camp and Canal, once the location of the International Trade Mart. At this corner Oswald handed out his leaflets to passengers.
