Robert Morris Timeline pt 1

Post by greg parker on Mon 21 Jul 2014, 9:14 pm


Worked for the Coudert law firm in New York City (1) 

Senator Coudert had an international law firm in Paris which acted for many White Russians.(2)The New York City address of the law firm was 200 Park Avenue(3)In 1938, George De Mohrenschildt moved from Europe to his brother's residence at 750 Park Ave, New York City.(4)

Served on a New York State Assembly committee.(5)

The committee was commonly known as the Rapp-Coudert Committee,(6) and was charged with investigating subversive text books, teaching and personnel in the public schools of New York City.(7)

Officer-in-Charge, Soviet Counterintelligence Third Naval District. (Cool 

Despite previously being turned down due to his color-blindness,(9) Morris was recruited into the ONI by fellow Rapp-Coudert Committee investigator, Paul Windels. This was accomplished through an arranged meeting with former Dewey aide and new head of Counter Intelligence, 3rd Navel District, Herman McCarthy.(10) Morris in turn recruited Ken Slocum, Charley Whitman, Bob Herman and Nelson Frank from the same committee.(11) 

Morris' reports during at least part of this period were sent up the chain-of-command through a young Lieutenant who, like Morris, had managed to join the navy, despite a medical condition which should have precluded it - in this case, a bad back. And as with Morris, it was a friendship between two others which helped overcome the obstacle. The friendship here was between the future officer's father and the Director of ONI, Alan Kirk.(12) That young officer's name was John Fitzgerald Kennedy.(13) 

In 1954, Senator Jenner, as Chairman of the Senate's Internal Security Subcommittee, began to investigate claims that FDR had dispersed [members of] this Counterintelligent unit before they had a chance to break up a Communist conspiracy. This alleged conspiracy had been related to Morris through future defector,Victor Kravchenko. It was further alleged that files on all Soviet operations against the US were ordered destroyed. (14) Among the files in question were those on Army subversives,(15) radio operators and longshoremen.(16) In all, up to 100,000 index cards were said to have been taken away (after being shared with the FBI) to avoid "too much duplication".(17) At this precise time, the ONI was not the only agency passing on Army subversive files; the FBI in turn was passing them on to the OSS who used the files to identify suitable subjects for "mind control" and interrogation field tests.(18)

Transferred from 3rd Naval District to Pearl Harbor.(19)

Officer-in-Charge Advance Psychological Warfare Section of CINCPAC [under Commander-in-Chief, Chester Nimitz] on Guam. (20)

In the Pacific, Morris interrogated Japanese POWs and wrote threats on what looked like money which were then dropped by the proverbial planeload on Japanese cities.(21) This was part of Pastel which had been "hastily sketched by Admiral Nimitz' staff in May 1945." Pastel was a pure psyop designed to "convey to the Japanese a false story of where the actual assault landings [as part of a planned invasion of Japan] would occur." It involved, among other things, submarine penetration, leafleting, aerial reconnaissance, photography, bombing and strafing missions, manipulation of radio traffic, media deception, and allowing POWs to escape after letting them witness bogus amphibious training where misleading place names were used.(22)

Wars End 1945
Officer-in-Charge, Counterintelligence Third Naval District.(23)

After separating from active duty with ONI on Dec 29, 1945, Morris practiced law at the offices of Bill Martin, 30 Broad St NY.(1) In November 1946, he formed the law firm of Hochwald, Morris and Richmond at 40 Exchange Pl.(2) His main client here was Senator Coudert, who had rehired Morris for committee work on Communist subversion.(3) 

Morris was in an "organised" (active) Reserves Unit during this period, and carried out Reserve work from his private law office.(4)

In 1948, he underwent training at Jacksonville Fla and the Key West Submarine Base. In 1949, he trained in New Orleans, where he also gave a lecture on Soviet espionage in the Third Naval District.(5)

State legislatures convened, resulting in the largest output of state laws against subversive movements in any year with the exception of 1919. By the following year, Maine was the only state without a law specifically designed to "repress or combat subversive organizations or individuals." Laws of this nature had come in spurts in reaction to historical events such as the McKinley assassination, the activities of the IWW, and the deepening Cold War.(6) 

Assistant counsel to the Subcommittee on the Investigation of Loyalty of State Department Employees aka The Tydings Committee.

Morris was hired by the subcommittee in April, 1950, at the insistence of Senator Hickenlooper.(7) The subcommittee was tasked with investigating the claims by McCarthy that he had a list of State Department employees who were members of the Communist Party. Those claims were proved to be false.(Cool Morris' real job appears to have been to wreak as much havoc upon the Democrat dominated committee as possible. Tydings was probably aware of this purpose when he barred Morris from examining witnesses, and from attending executive sessions.(9) 

Chief counsel to the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Internal Security(10)aka The Jenner Committee.(11)

"The subjects of its investigations during the 1950s include the formulation of U S foreign policy in the Far East; the scope of Soviet activity in the United States; subversion in the Federal Government, particularly in the Departments of States and Defense; immigration; the United Nations; youth organizations; the television, radio, and entertainment industry; the telegraph industry; the defense industry; labor unions; and educational organizations."(12) 

During this period, Morris was working with Saul Moskoff in running a network of student informants.(13) Moskoff was counsel for the New York City School Board(14) on a "take no prisoners" mission with Schools Superintendant, William Jansen, against the Teacher's Union.(15) 

Private spy networks feeding governments had been around for a long time by the 1950s. The idea (and practice) may have originated with Ralph H Van Deman, the so-called "father of modern American military intelligence".(16) In 1929, Deman established the "San Diego Research Library" which kept files on religious, labor, civil rights and other activists. It operated with the support of the Californian government, the army, and private donors, and exchanged data with state and federal agencies on a regular basis. One source of information was volunteer informants.(17) 

August, 1952 
Lee Harvey Oswald and his mother, Marguerite, move to New York and live with John Pic and his wife. Lee is just shy of his 13th birthday.(18)Pic takes one or two weeks leave from the Port Securirty Unit (PSU) at Ellis Island to show Lee around the city.(19) 

The PSU, at the outbreak of the Korean War, was tasked with eliminating "risks from suspected communist merchant seamen and waterfront workers." It did so by working with the FBI and ONI, as well as their existing networks of informants. The numbers of those who lost their jobs due to this program was "probably greater than the toll of victims in any other loyalty or security program of the day."(20) 

September, 1952
Lee Harvey Oswald and Marguerite move to private accommodation in the Bronx. Lee is enrolled at PS 117 and thereafter becomes a truant.(21) 

The Army is tasked with evaluating the problem of Korean POWs who defected or collaborated with the enemy. One aim of this study was to establish a profile among 13 to 17 year olds most at risk of defecting in the future.(22) In charge of this study was Army Psychologist, Major William Mayer.(23) Mayer found that American youth susceptible to the techniques employed in Korea were emotionally weak and unable to withstand any form of physical or mental stress.(24) Morris became involved in this study through the Jenner Committee, which also conducted investigations into the problem.(25) But the Chinese and Koreans had also been taking notes. They found early in the conflict that those from the southern states who had an unstable home life, and who, moreover, were raised in a female-dominated house, had high IQs, a thirst for information and an aversion to authority, should be made prime targets for Communist Party recruitment.(26) Oswald's partially falsified background, Youth House reports and truancy record [see following entries] thus made him a perfect candidate for both recruitment by the Communist Party, and as an infiltrator of such actions on behalf of the Morris-Moskoff student spy network. 

April 13, 1953
By the time the Korean War and the investigation of POWs was underway, "the Office of Naval Research, the Air Force Psychological Warfare Division, and the CIA [and its fore-runner, OSS] had all attempted to develop methods of interrogation and de-brainwashing. On 10 April 1953, Secretary of State Dulles publicly noted that the UNC [United Nations Command] refused to torture captured soldiers and so possessed no human guinea pigs on which to experiment. Just three days later, however, [Allen] Dulles acted on aide Richard Helms's suggestion to form MKULTRA, a top-secret project to investigate whether and how it was possible to modify an individual's behavior by covert means."(27) 

April 16-May 7, 1953 
Lee Harvey Oswald is remanded to Youth House for psychiatric study as a result of his truancy.(28) Both Lee and Marguerite provide false information on family background to staff at the Youth House, and to Parole Officer, John Carro.(29) This misinformation gave the impression Lee grew up without male role models.(30) The truth of the matter was however, quite different. He had two older brothers he admired and looked up to, a step-father for a period, who by all reports, had a good relationship with young Lee, male workers in the orphanage, and a coterie of older male relatives, not the least being Uncle Dutz, with whom he spent considerable time. The "lack of male role models" scenario was further reinforced by the alleged falling out between Lee and John Pic, which conveniently preceded the path to the making of Lee's "troubled" profile.(31) 

May 1, 1953 
Youth House Senior Psychiatrist, Dr Renatus Hartogs, writes a report on Oswald. The New York Post of Nov 30, 1963 quoted this report as stating that Oswald had "schizophrenic tendencies" and that he was "potentially dangerous". In his Warren Commission testimony, Hartogs recognised the terms as being ones he used, and he believed that the New York Post had quoted from his report. The report supplied to the Warren Commission however, contained no such language. 

May 7, 1953
The Family Court orders Lee to return to school,(32) despite Hartogs extant report noting that Lee had "personality pattern disturbance with schizoid features and passive aggressive tendencies." This ruling, given Hartogs' report, was unusual in that, by law, "a person whose mental or physical condition is such that his attendance [at school] upon instruction under the provisions of part one of this article would endanger the health or safety of himself or of others shall not be permitted to attend." Under the same law, Hartogs' report was insufficient in itself to stop Lee's attendence. What it should have done was trigger the Superintendent of Schools to organise another psychiatric examination to determine Lee's fitness to continue in school.(33) Recall that the Superintendent was William Jansen, and that during this very period, Jansen was involved with Saul Moskoff in a Communist witch hunt of the Teacher's Union. Recall also that Moskoff and Morris were running a student spy network supplying information on teachers to both Jansen and the Jenner Committee. But not only did Jansen fail to order such an examination, as the law required, Oswald's New York School records do not even contain one scrap of information concerning his psychological profile sketched in Youth House.(34) 

Oct 21, 1953
PS 44 reports to Carro that Oswald's behaviour is unsatisfactory, that he had been refusing to salute the flag, and that offers of help had been met with belligerence.(35) During the height of McCarthyism and loyalty oaths, the failure to investigate whether the flag salute refusals had political overtones should be noted.

Nov 19, 1953
PS 44 reports to Carro that, following a visit to the school by Mrs Oswald, Lee is no longer presenting as a problem student.(36)

Jan, 1954
Lee Harvey Oswald and mother, Marguerite move to New Orleans where they stay initially with the Murrets.(1) 

Apr & Jun, 1954
Subcommittee To Investigate Juvenile Delinquency in the United States holds open hearings in New York. The focus of these hearings is comic books, in particular, horror and war comics, and their potential to influence youth behavior. Concerns raised include the possible effect war comics may have on those approaching draft age.(2) It should be noted here that initial investigations began "many months" prior to the hearings, and that the hearings themselves commenced only 5 months after the Oswald case was discharged in the Family Court. Those initial investigations included contact with all agencies and courts dealing with troubled children. It could also be noted that one of the reasons found for Oswald's truancy was his preference for staying at home to read magazines (i.e. comics) and watching TV(3) - the latter the next target of the subcommittee. Lastly, in John Carro's contemporaneous report on Oswald, he notes that a chronological sheet is missing from Oswald's file when it was returned from the Court Clinic.(4) 

Advisor U. S. Senate Rules Committee 1954.(5) 

Justice Municipal Court New York City 1954-1956.(6) 

This appointment was a reward for his work on the Jenner Committee.(7) His partner in running the student spy ring, Saul Moskoff, was made a judge in the Family Court the same year.(Cool 

Herman Liveright is promoted at WDSU-TV from director to program director. Prior to moving to New Orleans in 1953, he had been an associate director at ABC in New York.(9) In New York, he and wife, Betty, lived at 117 E 89th St, about a 7 or 8 minute walk from Oswald's at 325 E 92nd.(10) Betty had been born into a conservative Christian Science family in Chicago, while Herman was raised in a middle-class Jewish New York environment.(11) Herman however, was laid to rest in a Unitarian-Universalist Church.(12) 

Oswald attends CAP meetings at Lakefront and Moisant. Meets David Ferrie.(13) 

October, 1955
Lee attempts to join Marines. Marguerite is convinced he is studying the Marine Manual and Communism simultaneously at the behest of a Marine Reserve Recruitment Officer who came to her home. She also believes that Lee's determination to join up was a result of his attendance at CAP. Recruitment Officer indicates to Marguerite that Lee can join, despite not being of age. Margurite argues that they may send him overseas. Recruitment officer replies that they have less delinquency in Japan than in the US. Attempt to join up fails.(14) 

Chief counsel to the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Internal Security.(15) 

Sent to New Orleans during this period to investigate the Liverights and Jack O'Dell, among others for the hearings to be held in that city. 

Herman Liveright subpoenaed in March 1956 to appear before the committee. Liveright does not plead the 5th, as many others had done, but relied instead on 1st Amendment rights. He was fired by WDSU the next day. At the same time, Betty was also fired from a TV show called Tulane Closeup.(16) 

O'Dell, using the alias, Hunter Pitts was working as a waiter when he was called before the committee in April, 1956. In 1962, O'Dell was director of voter registration for the southern states. As a result of past membership in the CPUSA, he became a target of the FBI who organised a smear campaign in the press. In June 1963, JFK put pressure on Martin Luther King to fire O'Dell. King very publicly obliged, only to quietly rehire him in September as director of the New York office. 

Mar, 1956
As a result of the Morris/SISS Liveright investigation, Mayor Chep Morrison ordered a probe of subversive activities within New Orleans. Morrison contacted the SISS and asked for all their relevant files, appointing Guy Banister, then Assistant Police Superintendent, to head the investigation.(17) 

Jul-Sep, 1956
After dropping out of school and working in a series of courier/office boy jobs, Oswald is taken to Fort Worth where he re-enrols in school, only to drop out again within a month.

Oct 3, 1956
Oswald writes a letter to the Socialist Party in New York requesting information on their "Youth League", known as the YPSL.(18) By 1956, the SP had turned to the right and was vehemently anti-Communist. This had also been the party of perrenial Presential Candidate Norman Thomas. Thomas was much admired by the Ruth Paine Hyde's family during her youth in New York.(19) 

Oct 24, 1956
Lee Harvey Oswald succeeds in enlisting in the USMC. His military file notes his mastoidectomy scar and a self-reported history of ear, nose and throat trouble, and running ears, with the physician noting "no problem with ears since". However, his
medical, school, court and Youth House records all showed he suffered from a hearing loss in his left ear. Moreover, he needed treatment for otitis media in Marines on Jan 5, 1957, and on March 30, 1961, he was admitted to hospital in Minsk where he was diagnosed with "chronic otitis media purulenta at the right side, complicated by granulations and cholesteatoma." Additionally he was suffering from ascariasis. As part of his treatment, he underwent an adenotomy on April 1st.(20) What all this adds up to is that he almost certainly did not have "no problem with ears" at the time of his enlistment. Waivers to enlist in the USMC with a hearing loss can only be granted if the person has the skills and qualifications in positions which are hard to fill, and the hearing loss itself has no bearing on the work to be performed.(21) Since Oswald's condition was not recorded as current, no waiver was required in his case.

May 3, 1957
Oswald sent to Keesler Air Force Base where he is trained as a radar operator despite scoring below average in aptitude tests, and despite his civilian skill base being recorded as office-boy/courier.

Candidate for the Republican Senate nomination for New Jersey.(22) 

Morris stressed his subcommittee work as his main qualification during this unsuccesful run.

Left subcommittee work for "political action" against Indonesia, Cuba and Africa, with the Congo being a high priority.(23) 

Is in touch with Max Yergan who had been to an African Peoples Council meeting held in Ghana the previous year.(24) Yergan had been a victim of the Rapp-Coudert Committee for which Morris had worked, failing to be reappointed by CCNY after the committee heard evidence that his classes had been "liberal and progressive".(25) However, after being dismissed in 1948 from the Council on African Affairs (which he had co-founded with Paul Robeson), he became a vocal anti-Communist; a supporter of right-wing causes, and associated with CIA sponsored African policy organisations.(26) Although his testimony does not make it clear as to the exact year, George De Mohrenschildt spent some time in Ghana during the late '50s posing as a philatelist, whilst actually on oil business. Noted too, is Oswald's reference to Ghana during his New Orleans radio debate.

Spends some of this year writing speeches and dealing with the Policy Committee of the Republican Convention.(27) 

Mar 19, 1959
Oswald sends an application to attend Albert Schweitzer College (ASC) in Switzerland.(28) ASC is owned and operated by the International Association for Religeous Freedom (IARF); itself a creation of the Unitarian Church. It is supported in the US by the Friends of Albert Schweitzer College. Percival Flack Brundage was Director of the Bureau of the Budget from 1956 to 1958, staying on a further 2 years after that as a consultant. From 1953 to 1958, he was President of the Friends of Albert Schweitzer College, and from 1952 to 1955 had been President of the IARF. As Director of the Bureau of the Budget, he was heavily involved in Project Vanguard, ostensibly a program to ensure "freedom of space", but in actuality had more to do with the ability to use and gather IMINT (image intelligence).(29) 

Oct 16, 1959

Oswald arrives in Moscow. 

Oct 31, 1959
Oswald has a meeting at the US Embassy with Richard Snyder and attempts to renounce his US citizenship. Meeting is witnessed by an exchange student studying at Leningrad by the name of Edward L Keenan.(30) Keenan is one of 13 US students studying in Leningrad at the time under the 1958 cultural exchange agreement between the two countries.(31) Exchange students were forbidden to travel alone, moreover, it was a Saturday and the Embassy was closed, so the question is how and why was Keenan there at all? After getting his Ph.D in '66, he would become a Director of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, the Center for Russian Studies, Director of Dumbarton Oaks(32)and a Council for Foreign Relations member.(33) Was he in Snyder's office that day, wittingly or otherwise, specifically to observe the unfolding charade?

(28)Warren Commission Exhibit 228. This college application is key evidence that Oswald was part of an operation arising from the POW defector study (see Part 2). Oswald had created a legend as that of a potential defector. In this application, he lists 3 strong individualists as his favourite authors, emphasises moral values, membership in the YMCA and a student body movement aimed at controlling delinquency. Development of strong individualism and moral values, along with membership in organisations such as the YMCA and CAP were all recommendations made in the POW study to "defector-proof" future soldiers. All the flags were now raised: delinquent; marxist; attempt at fraudulent enlistment; fraudulent dependent discharge; evidence per Schweitzer application of "defector-proofing".

I offer him embarrassment and my usual excuses
While looking down the corridor
Out to where the van is waiting
I'm looking for the Great Leap Forward
