From the above letter:


“Walker contacts were from Alabama. I heard Oswald speak of them.”



On page 22 of the following Armstrong Baylor file is information from a Sergeant Edwin J. Cates, who claimed that he met an Oswald lookalike in a restaurant in Duluth, Minnesota, on July 22nd, 1963. According to Cates, this Oswald lookalike told him that he had been to Birmingham, Alabama, during the riots, was allegedly pro – Kennedy, allegedly approved of Kennedy’s Civil rights actions in the South, and that he was an expert in both Judo and Karate who taught the demonstrators passive resistance and Judo.

The reference to Judo is significant, IMO, because it points to this Oswald lookalike being Larry Crafard, as Crafard’s cousin claimed that Crafard told her that he had “extensive” knowledge of Judo, and would show off to her.

I think the anonymous letter sender had confused the real LHO for Crafard. The question I would like answered is whether Crafard did in fact know Walker?

Hasan,


the "Gaston" named was Arthur Gaston.

I too thought of Crafard (and for the same reason + it fits who and what I think Crafard really was). However, whether Crafard or someone else, I don't see this as a deliberate impersonation. 

As for teaching "passive resistance"... well, maybe, but it was not something Gaston claimed to support. In fact, he cited it as a reason for splitting with King.

Thanks for the info, Greg. I may have some comments to make when I'm not feeling tired.
