Clay Shaw and Ruth Branigan

Even with the publication of my biography of Clay Shaw, Man of a Million Fragments: The True Story of Clay Shaw, there remain a few unresolved questions. Clay Shaw was the only person ever prosecuted for alleged involvement in the JFK assassination.

One involves Ruth Branigan, who in the 1960s was in the Department of Merchandising at Old Dominion College (now Old Dominion University) in Norfolk, Virginia. I believe that she might have been a faculty member, but am not certain of that.

Although I spent some time on an attempt to flesh out the relationship, as I did with all of Shaw's friends and acquaintances, I never figured out how she and Clay Shaw knew each other, when they first met, or the extent of their friendship (she was obviously supportive of him after his acquittal).

If anyone knew or knows of this Ruth Branigan, please contact me by telephone, letter, or e-mail.
