What to make of the library cards reference

Library Card Clues E978804d4402a6c67bf8bf53004479a5

Who is Bowen?
It was revealed this is a criminal using an alias, while working with Oswald at JCS.

Stu Wexler covers this a bit and follows the rabbit trails to multiple holes.

John Caesar Grassi or Grossi among his many names is the man who Lee used as a reference on his library card.

The Mohr Chevrolet ties,
seems that Gene Mohr threw York under the bus

32. William Dalzell has admitted to me that he formed Friends of Democratic Cuba as well as the Free Voice of Latin America. This is:an extremely intelligent man who apparently was very much involved with the CIA in the early 1960's, although he will make no such admission. He states that the name Joseph Moore is very familiar to him and such 7-10- a person may have been connected with Friends of Democratic Cuba -- but he cannot place the individual. He did state also, however, that one Charles Waters was very active with the organization. The description of Charles Waters at the time describes a youngish man, rather slim with somewhat blond hair. It is entirely possible that Charles Waters used the name Oswald in soliciting bids for trucks at Bolton Ford. It is to be noted that-there is a Charles Waters who is now employed in Dallas by H. L. Hunt and who seems to be a right-hand man to Hunt's assistant, Paul Rothermell. One of Charles Water's last comments here in New Orleans was to the effect that "Everything is lined up in Dallas" and that he was going to go to Dallas. We should attempt to obtain a driving license photograph of Charles Waters. This photograph should be the Bolton Ford people and added to our photograph file. 33. In connection with Friends of Democratic Cuba and the activity of the early 1960's, Grady Durham's name keeps coming up. He was, for example, the individual who drew up the papers for the charter of that organization. Anyone going to Washington on any office project should also make arrangements to see Grady Durham and interview him in this regard. We have his address available.

Bowen - Grossi was a Juvenile delinquent in NJ

Ray Carnay meeting an Oswald in Dallas 1961!!msg/alt.assassination.jfk/Qs0MssLON60/iENsk0OmzDEJ

Alexander Kleinlerer

Reddell (a lot like Hidell?)
In his conversations with BOWEN he told BOWEN all about this business and'told BOWEN on one occasion that he intended to go to the library to obtain all the information possible regarding this business and information regarding Mexico. 
BOWEN at this time told him he had a girl friend who is employed at the library and told REDDELL he could use his BOWEN's, library card. 
BOWEN then gave him the library card. 
REDDELL stated' he was aware of the fact that he could get a card of his own but he did take BOWEN's card and believes that he still has this card. He made'a search of his briefcase where he had miscellaneous information regarding the leasing-business-he--intended to try to set up and he did locate a library card from the Dallas Public Library. This in the name of JACK L. BOWEN, 1919 Steven Forest Drive, Dallas 8, Texas. The card is signed in the name of JACK L. BOWEN. The reference listed on the card- is-HAROLD K. VAN BUREN, 6416 Chevy Chase, no city listed, telephone # EM This card expires on November 8, 1964. REDDELL stated.l.?.e does not recall ever using this library card.  

Harold K. Van Buren, who vouched for Bowen

This Harold Van Buren guy was no slouch and to be on Bowen's library card as a reference is too rich.

Harold in 1936 is selling linens in Lubbock,

Representative To Discuss Hand Blocked Table Linent Harold K. Van Buren, representative of the Edmond de Wan company, is to give a lecture and demonstration on hand blocked table linens at S o'clock this morning in room 104 of the Tech home economics building. The meeting is open to any interested women

And by 1952 he is selling MacArthur,

Plea for Honest Convention Made Dallas, May 1. plea for “honest, open and fairly conducted” precinct conventions was voiced today by Taft-Supporter Ralph Currie of Dallas, a veteran of 20 years of activity in Republican Party affairs. , The plea was contained in a let- j ter to Dallas County Republican i leaders. Currie enclosed a list of j rules which, he said, if followed { by the GOPs, would result in fair j and honest conventions and would : allow’ majority rule. * The letter went to County GOP ; Chairman George Atkinson, Alvin . Lane, leader in the Eisenhow'er i for President movement; Walter : Rogers, Texans for Taft cam^paign ' director; Harold K. Van Buren, a GOP precinct chairman and a MacArthur stalwart: and R. P. (Dickl W'all, precinct chairman and Eisenhower supporter. ' Currie's letter was a follow-up I to a resolution he introduced ; about a month ago at a meeting ^ of the GOP County Executive ' Committee. That resolution called ; for an adherence to majority rule at precinct conxentions. It was adopted unanimously by the executive committee.

Quite the guy to have on your library card if you are a career criminal like Jack Bowen aka John Caesar Grossi.

At first I had my doubts... then there were none.

Check it out.

Dr. Van Buren will conduct the classes in homemaking, general art and general home economics work. He will display a collection of cloths to illustrate his talk, and explanations of hand-blocking, methods of weaving and the development of the flax industry in the northwestern states will be given. ' The noted expert is a former educator, being at one time head master of the Havana School for Boys in Cuba. During the past ten years he has engaged in the study and promotion of the growth of flax in Oregon, and the development of the industry in the Williamette valley area. The group of designs which will be shown at his lecture are the work of Ruth Reeves, who specializes in Guatemalan patterns

He was Head Master of the Havana School for Boys, Cuba!!!
Formerly of Princeton, but signs library cards for career criminals,

More on Grossi,

Mantooth and Rose Grossi,

Grossi is with Jack Robinson, later Grossi uses Jack Robinson as alias,

Is this released?

Wrap Sheet, runs 3 pages

And of course he is in Huntsville TX prison in 1960, (as John Leslie Bowen), Huntsville where Buell Frazier hails from. This was for forgery.  Then he gets a job at JCS... mind boggling. 

Library Card Clues Hkvb910

Last bit, cut off, says he was a marine salvager, and in 1944 to contact Harold at what is a posh two story brick residence in Dallas.
1944, Marine salvage, sounds Navy to me.

The FBI does not tell me in the Dallas report when Lee obtained his Dallas Library card, they do for New Orleans.
Expires Dec 7, 1965
Must have been issued Dec 7, 1962

His Dept of Defense ID card expired Dec 7, 1962 and he needed ID, the library card was his ID
[url= oswald december 7][/url]

NO library card was issued May 27, 1963 and expires May 27, 1966. Good for three years like Dallas. 

The FBI ask about authors such as:
UE Baughman,
Urbanus Edmund Baughman was the chief of the United States Secret Service between 1948 and 1961, under Presidents Truman, Eisenhower, and Kennedy. Baughman was the first Secret Service Chief to pen a memoir concerning the office he held.

Harry Edward Neal, who retired as a top Secret Service official and started a second career as an author, writing 31 books

as well as Edward Starling, and Michael Reilly. Oswald had not checked out these books.

Problems with the DOD card and the passport obtained are detailed here:

Thanks for putting this all up together Ed. Amazing stuff. Difficult to figure out but they were up to something no doubt. It has to go back to his recruitment before the Marines I guess. Greg established that part of it.

Release clear scans. Reveal the truth about Prayer Man. Preserve the history of the assassination of JFK.

Ed this is just incredible. I'm also slowly making my way to listening to many of our forum member's audio shows as guests. I recently listened to you on Rob Clark's show (a bit dated but facts never are right lol?) being interviewed by Bart. You guys were not only hilarious but genius. Bart is an amazing host and I could listen to you, Greg and Bart all day. Can't wait to hear the rest of the member's shows.

Here are the important parts,

Library Card Clues Riddel10
Library Card Clues Riddel11
Library Card Clues Riddel10

FBI had interest in these "Canadians" named or aliased Bowen!

Good stuff here on Waters:

GARY EUGENE LAWLER advised he resides at 3235 Seevers, 
Dallas, Texas, and he is employed by the Prior Products, Inc., at 4828 Recell in Dallas. He said his residence telephone number is FR 4-5305 and his business telephone number is HA 8-7411. He observed a photograph of JOHN CAESAR GROSSI, FBI No. 3 967 794, and advised he is identical with a person whom he knew as JACK BOWEN who formerly lived in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas at an apartment on Stevens Forest Drive, he said he last saw BOWEN about three weeks prior to February 15, 1964, when BOWEN was residing at the Executive Inn and told him he was leaving the following day on a trip to Mexico and New York. BOWEN told him on that occasion he could be reached through MAX CHERRY, c/o Mrs. M. M. CHERRY, at 3542 Purdue, Dallas, telephone EM 3-1246. Be said that BOWEN told him be and CHERRY planned to go into the import-export business at El Paso, Texas, and Chihuahua, Mexico. BOWEN told him about a deal he had with a Mr. McCOLLOM who was in the insurance business in Dallas which had fallen through so he was going into business with MAX CHERRY. 

Be said BOWEN married a Canadian whose name is PATRICIA 
GERVAN BOWEN about three or four years ago and she lives with her mother, MABLE GERVAN, at 50 Ragland North, Renfrew, Ontario, Canada, and BOWEN is occasionally in contact with his wife’s sister, EDNA ELLIOTT, who resides at 39 Lome 8treet South in Renfrew, Ontario, Canada. 
LAWLER said he was employed at Jaggare-Chilee-Stovall until 
about November, 1963, and BOWEN was there for some time leaving about August. Be said he recalled that LEE HARVEY OSWALD, the accused assassin of President JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY, was employed at this same firm for a very short time while BOWEN was there. 

He said BOWEN had never discussed anything about the 
import-export business until after August of 1963. LAWLER said he was barely acquainted with LEE HARVEY OSWALD and only saw him when he went into the department where OSWALD was employed at Jaggare- Chiles-Stovall . He said he, LAWLER, was in the production office and BOWEN and OSWALD were in the camera department. He said that BOWEN set up a form of type called "Headliner" and produced miscellaneous art work, cartoons, etc. 

Possibly our Eddie?
Eddie Reddell (817) 581-6356 6432 Brookside Drive

I just don't trust the way Kleinlerer spoke of Lee.
He was throwing Lee under the bus in an odd fashion.
He got clothes for Marina yet I had others argue to me that Marina had truck loads of clothes and dresses... hmm.

viewed and advises he has no knowledge of "Texas Import-Export 
Company” or of an individual by name of ALEXANDER KLEINLERER. He 
does not know present location of JACK LESLIE BOWEN , who is y 
delinquent on lease payments on a 1963 Pontiac GP which BOWEN 
leased from Continental Leasing Company, Dallas, Texas, August 
1963. He is aware BOWEN traveled to New York in December 1963 
in this car and returned to Dallas about three weeks ago.

He met with the Oswald-type character in person three times over 7-9 days and several follow-up phone calls. "How could the Oswald impostor have known in the first place that Carnay had turned a list of names and other information over to the FBI? Was someone in intelligence circles testing Carnay's loyalties by sending in a straw man to pose as a Castro advocate? A similar story to Carnay's is told to Jim Garrison by William Galzell, the head of Friends of Democratic Cuba in New Orleans. In 1961, Jim Moore was purchasing trucks for the FDC and documents were signed by Moore and a man called Lee Oswald. When asked before the grand jury, Galzell said that "Colonel" Charles Watters was working with Joseph Moore and he could tell Garrison all about Moore. Waters treated the group as a "hangout for arms and ammunition". See 124-10288-10389: Like Carnay, Dalzell describes Waters to the FBI as a "lieutenant colonel in the Western Hemisphere". See 124-10288-10389, p. 47 of 59: Dalzell was not a marginalized character - in the 50s he worked for DOD as a cryptographer.

Q. "He said a Mr. Joseph Moore advised him that he and

his friends were representing the above organization and wished
to purchase 10 Ford Econoline Trucks . Des latte said Moore
listed the equipment he desired on the trucks but he did not
state whether they were for use here in the United States
or were to be sent to Cuba. Des latte quoted him the price and
advised that he would make a $75.00 profit on each truck.

Moore said they thought they should get the trucks for no profit
for his organization. Moore then told him that he should change
the name on the bid form from Moore to Oswald, no first name
given. The individual with Moore then said that was his name.

The younger man with Moore\ This man said Oswald was his name
and it should go on the form as he was the man with the money
and would pay for them if purchased .Des latte was exhibited a
photograph of Lee Harvey Oswald and said he could not ever re-
call having seen him before, nor could he say this was the
individual who had come in with Moore. Deslattesaid he could
not identify this man as it was almost three years ago and they
only spent a short time with him. He said he remembered this
incident, not for the name of Oswald, but for the name of the
organization. Friends of Democratic Cuba. Des latte said that he,
himself, filled out the above mentioned form completely and
neither individual handled it or signed it. He made the original
of this form available to them and he kept a carbon copy of the
form for his use, which he said he made available to interviewing

Bits and pieces...Cheers, Ed

So this criminal. Grossi aka Bowen, has a library card with his reference a rich textile magnate named Van Buren.
Bowen-Grossi doesn't let Lee Oswald, a co-worker, someone he knows pretty well,  doesn't let Lee borrow it or even offer his library card to Lee, but gives himself as a reference so Lee can get his own,,,... but Bowen meets a guy at a lounge, a complete "stranger" and gives him his library card... whoa.

So what books did BOWEN - GROSSI check out?
Does the FBI or WC ask? If none then why not loan the card to Lee?
He wasn't using it and he obviously did give it to another person later.
