85. Remember: Oswald worked for Jaggers-Chiles-Stovall
Edited on Fri Sep-17-04 10:12 PM by Octafish
That place did printing plus. Seems there's word they also did secret photo work for Uncle Sam while LHO worked there, making it an interesting place for a defector to land a job.

Did Ex-President Bush Know Lee Harvey Oswald?

EXCERPT (Thanks, 9215, wherever you are for the info from "The Man Who Knew Too Much")...

By the early autumn of 1962, Lee and Marina Oswald's relationship was already devolving into constant bickering. Thirteen days before Nagell's arrival in Dallas from Mexico to make some inquiries about him, on Oct. 10 Oswald had suddenly left his job at a Fort Worth metal factory, bid a temporary farewell to his family, and traveled alone the thirty miles to Dallas. Staying for a few days at a YMCA, opened his first of several post office boxes, Box 2915. On October 12 he suddenly found new employment with the Jaggers-Chiles-Stovall (JCS) photo-lithography firm for $1.35/hour. ...

JCS was an interesting place for a 'redefector' from the USSR to find a job. One of the company's contracts was doing classified work for the U.S. Army Map Service. In this context, employees set type for place names on maps of Cuba. Just days after Oswald arrived JCS, pictures taken by an American U2 spy plane would confirm the existence of Soviet missile launching pads.....

....Hundreds of dollars worth of photographic equipment were discovered by the Dallas police in Oswald's apartment ....

Oswald himself was never known to have been fond of taking long cross-country camera hikes in foreign lands. But someone else was. This was a well-connected Russian e'migre' some thirty years Oswald's senior,....Both the wife and daughter would tell the Warren Commission that it was he who had arranged for Oswald's employment at Jaggers-Chiles-Stovall. Not the Texas Employment Commission, as official records would have us believe.....

CONTINUED (SmirkingChimp GOOGLE cache)...

Anyway, someone there got tired of LHO and he got canned. Here's the affidavit:
