Prof. Chuck Webster

on Sat 23 Dec 2017, 8:29 pm
Prof. Charles Webster


Webster was a Professor of Law at Southern Methodist University and specialized in labor law.
 
As previously stated, Webster made a run for Congress in 1960 and was supported by the local FBI branch of the Communist Party.
 
Perhaps most tellingly, he was a member of the American Arbitration Association headed by Donald Straus who holidayed on Naushon Island where Ruth and Michael holidayed and which was owned by Michael’s family.
 
Webster was present at DPD headquarters from at least the time that Oswald’s questioning began. We know this through Sylvia Meagher who wrote that Webster sat in on Oswald’s interrogations throughout that longest of days. His name is also mentioned in various pieces of testimony as being around late into the evening and appearing to be helping the police.  Remember, this is a law professor who – on the face of it – had been supported for a run at public office with the backing of communists. He should have been on the DPD subversive list himself, not acting like he was in the Good Ol’ Boys Club.
 
One thing we can confirm Webster did was advise those in the DCLU (the local ACLU affiliate) who had come to check on Oswald, that his rights were being looked after and that he was not being denied any of them.  Largely on the say-so of Webster, the group broke up and left without talking to Oswald.
 
We can also speculate as to what else he may have done.  
 
There is no reason to believe that Oswald had ever heard of John Abt. There is some reason to doubt that he had. Marguerite quoted Lee as saying he wanted a New York Lawyer – “Abt I think his name is…” That uncertainty about his name indicates he hadn’t heard it before that day. If he had not heard it before, where did it come from? Not the police. They would not have known about him. The only obvious source for the name and the information linking Abt to the Smith Act was Prof Charles Webster.

So which Smith Act case was Abt involved with? There was only one!


In January 1955 Abt defended Claude Lightfoot in Chicago, an African-American Communist on trial under the 1940 Smith Act for belonging to a group that advocates the overthrow of the US government. This trial marked the first time the government attempted to convict an individual solely as a member of a group conspiring against the nation, rather than for individual actions. Although Abt's short and simple defense failed at this trial, Lightfoot's conviction was ultimately overturned by the US Supreme Court in 1964.
             
As at the time of Oswald’s arrest, Abt had one Smith Act trial and blew it!
 
The Lightfoot case marked a whole new ballgame in the legal fight against communism.
 
The DPD was telling the media that Oswald admitted being a communist (when he was in fact denying being one). By the time Abt came into the conversation, conspiracy was off the table – so telling Oswald he should get Abt was perfect for the DPD case. Abt had never tried a murder case, had lost his only Smith Act case, and because he was CPUSA Counsel, it would further reinforce Oswald as communist.
 

Webster is also the most likely source of information on the Rosenberg case, and the items “borrowed” from it to help frame this particular patsy.

"Mr. Webster"

Ev'ryone in town knew Mr. Webster;
He worked at the bank for forty years.
And each week Mr. Frizby made his check out
For sixty-eight dollars clear.

And thru the years he thwarted twenty-seven robberies
And each time Frizby promised him a raise.

They gave a retirement party for Mr. Webster
Everyone from the bank was there.
They had a cake and flowers ordered special
And Frizby had a speech prepared.

And a little white box that held a watch with this inscription
"To Mr. Webster, with regards."

Then came the telegram from Mr. Webster
Said, "Sorry...stop...Cannot attend..
I've flown away and taken all your money
Wish you were here to help me spend."

And one by one all the people left the party
And Mr. Frizby locked the door.

Not sure if this is anything, strange that SMU does not hold anything from that period about him.
