BACKGROUND: Judyth Vary Baker is the author of ME AND LEE: How I came to know, love and lose Lee Harvey Oswald. She will be the featured speaker at a one-day symposium at Loyola University’s Miller Hall, Room 114 on Saturday, October 19, 2013, from 9 a.m. to noon, in New Orleans, to explore New Orleans’ connection to the 50th anniversary of the JFK murder. She is challenging New Orleans to rethink the Lee Harvey Oswald story. As a prelude to her Saturday talk, which will also feature Investigative Reporter Todd Elliott, author, A Rose by Many Other Names, Ms. Baker will tour sites important to the Summer and Fall of 1963, when she worked with and dated Oswald. The tour, currently offered to the public through StrangeTrueTours, will include 544 Camp, the Reily Coffee Company, Clay Shaw’s offices, and locations where Judy and LHO used to meet.
Judyth Vary Baker has a strong following in the JFK research community, including Jim Marrs, author of NY Times Best-seller Crossfire: The Plot that Killed Kennedy and former Governor Jesse Ventura, who hosts the TV series American Conspiracies. On Friday, Oct. 18, Oswald would have turned 74.
Judyth lives abroad for safety reasons; this is her first visit to New Orleans in more than a decade.
