I realize I haven’t been very active blogging recently, but most of my time has been taken up with presentations for this year’s JFK Research conferences.

In doing that I’ve been taking a new look at Lee Oswald using resources that are not much referenced in prior decades of writings, and its given me some new thoughts about his activities in 1963, in particular his activities in New Orleans.

My view is becoming more nuanced, and a bit contrarian, both to the image the Warren Commission presented and in regard to some of what has been written (including by myself) previously.

Time seems to have turned Lee Oswald into something of a one dimensional character; I increasingly find him to be far more complex than either a lone nut or a simple “order taker”. If anything shows up repeatedly in Oswald’s character, it is not a propensity to blindly take orders but rather an ongoing effort to adjust everything he touched to his own agendas, at least as far as he could manage things.

Now on to the conference update:

Here is the current, updated, speaker list for the 2022 JFK Lancer virtual conference – which will streamed online Friday, November 18th, Saturday, November 19th and Sunday, November 20th.  

The format will be the same as the previous JFK Lancer virtual conferences – as will the prices. There will be student prices and students will have access to everything listed for the conference-only price. The conference only price is $64.99, the student price will be $34.99 and the full Conference and Digital Download fee is $119.99

The “Conference Only” price will give you access to the conference online, access to re watch the presentations until the 30th of November, and access to the conference Facebook group.  For an additional fee, you will be able to do digital downloads of the entire conference.

Speakers/Presenters include:

Bill Simpich

Larry Hancock

Robert Groden

Gil Jesus

David Boylan

Brent Holland

Jim DiEugenio

Monica Weisak

Mike Chesser

Larry Schnapf

Johnny Cairns

Rex Bradford

I’d like to note that Rex Bradford will be reviewing enhancements to the Mary Ferrell Foundation web site as well as plans for restoring access to the extensive research and resources formerly available on the JFK Lancer web site.

Please use the following link to register for the 2022 conference (we know it is the earlier 2021 conference page, but it is what we are using for 2022 as we still are not able to update the actual content on the page due to hosting problems).  


If you have questions concerning registration please conduct Gabriella Glenn, the conference administrator, directly at her email:

    I will register for the Lancer virtual conference but will also be in Dallas too. Thanks Larry.

    Great Gerry, while its hard to beat being on the scene in Dallas, I do think we will be offering some special presentations with the Lancer virtual conference and its easy (and inexpensive) to take advantage of the virtual sessions.

    I do miss the Dallas in-person conferences and hosting walking tours in the plaza (not so much those years we had hail or snow showers though) but time marches on for some of us these days.

    Good to hear from you, safe travels to and from Dallas!
