John Thomas Masen

Post by Colin Crow on Tue 07 Feb 2017, 8:24 pm

On this page there is a video with the title Mannlicher Carcano rifle

https://www.wpafilmlibrary.com/exhibit/Lee_Harvey_Oswald

Could the unidentified gunshop owner be John Thomas Masen?

From memory there were only 2 shops that stocked ammo for the rifle in Dallas. The other guy has a Latino name (from memory). The guy sounds Texan to me and they talk of him ever mounting a left hand scope. To my mind this makes sense only if the interview was conducted in Dallas. If he is Masen he does indeed bear a resemblance to LHO.

Yeah, I've seen that pic. It was when he was 18 and from a school yearbook. I also saw a modern day interview with him on video.....he looked nothing like the geeky high school pic. Do you think the interview indicates that it was done in Dallas?

Do a Google for John Thomas Masen JFK.....see what you get. Any pics that look like the guy being interviewed?

This looks like it's been cropped from the film. It probably is Masen, but I'd also bet that the person who labelled him as Masen was making an assumption.

I think you are right Greg. Do you think the guy interviewed was a Dallas gunshop owner? Do you think he looks a better match for Oswald than the other high school photo?

Owner or employee. And yes, a far better match. It still could be the same person in both photos, but I am definitely not saying it is.

That is Dial Duwayne Ryder.

CBS-TY
Thursday, November 28, 1963
INTERVIEW WITH DIAL RYDER, IRVING GUNSMITH SHOP,
DALLAS, TEXAS

Q. You have attached a lot of scopes, telescopic sights
recently . Row would you mount a scope on a gun like that?

RYDER. Well, actually there is really one way to mount
it on there. It would be with a side mount, and I don't recall
putting a side mount on any bolt action that I've Worked on.

Hmm, he does have a Lee Oswald resemblance.

Colin,

Letter from Blakey to Carpentier of the CIA. John Thomas Masen. Date of birth; August 15, 1940.
https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=51018&relPageId=3&search="John_Thomas%20Masen"

Does the man in your video look 23 (or whenever that video was shot?)

I don't have an opinion. Just asking.

Steve Thomas
From CD 778 page 15.
It lists the colleges Masen said he attended.
https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=11176&search="John_Thomas+Masen"#relPageId=19&tab=page

A person could research the alumni associations of those colleges.
Those alumni associations never forget anybody
I'm still getting letters 40 years later *smile*

I thought of Ryder, but didn't he claim Oswald had been in to have some work done on a rifle?

I could be wrong but didn't Ryder appear on one of the early CBS specials? The one I am thinking of had Garland Slack also.

In the CBS special he denies it as it would only be a side mount.
As I posted above the man in the film is Ryder.

My recollection of Ryder's story was not quite right.

Found this was interesting.....
