Clay Shaw and 1967 Interviews of Individuals by Jim Garrison's Office

I am at the National Archives yet again, collecting material for my Clay Shaw biography. This time, among other things, I am actually listening to some of the sound recordings of people interviewed by Jim Garrison's office in 1967. These include, Perry Russo (uncer hypnosis), J.B. Dauenhauer, and Owen M. Wright.

I Lost It At The Beginning

My earlier novel, I Lost It At The Beginning, is still in print. It has come back to life because of the Clay Bertrand character, a relatively minor figure in the novel. The character is not meant to be Clay Shaw, but rather to represent the myth of Bertrand.

My new novel, He Knew Where He Was Going (?), was published recently, and can be ordered from fine bookstores everywhere around the world.


Clay Shaw and Harold Weisberg

Last week, I went through some of the Harold Weisberg collection online, looking for any documents related to Clay Shaw that I may have missed.

Clay Shaw and New Orleans and Burt Klein and Laveau Truth and Edward Haslam and Judyth Baker

I was in New Orleans last week doing research for the Clay Shaw biography. I had lunch with attorney Burt Klein, who had represented Alvin Beauboeuf. I saw a television interview with Edward Haslam, promoting his new book about Judyth Baker. Today I communicated with Laveau Truth, who is working on her own Clay Shaw project.
