Harold Weisberg re: Roy Kellerman’s daughter

 

Harold Weisberg (to Bruce Milner, 9/29/86) [with typos; Weisberg wrote the same thing to myself in early 1992]:

 “I made one of two appearances I made at the univereity of Maryland in

 1966 and 1977. Aside from the story I’m about to toll, it may amuse you how I can have

 a clear recollection of these among so many college appearances. Well, once it

 coincided with a world series game and the other time it coincided with the first

 fratornity sororiety confernee on sex. Stiff competition both times! But I had full

 audience and I’m reasonably certain that the time I’m getting to the kide went out

 

to classes or for supper and then returned. It lasted quite some time. At the end there

 

were some student: who wanted books autographed, and a thhle had been set up for this

 

off to the right of that large meeting room. Theyi formed a line. I notice one rather

 

attractive woman students, slightly hailer than most, moving to the back of the line

 

ae others came up and was mustified. Until thore waa nobody else. I could then see

 

her clearly and I could see she’d been crying. She said she wanted to thank me for

 

the kind things I’d said about her father. I tried to make light of it and said she

 

had the advantage, she knew who her father is. She said it was (he died, too) Roy

 

Kellerman. I told her that I’d spoken only the truth, that those man were more

 

distress than most of us because they could not have done anything and because they

 

were closer to the .President. Before she left she added the hope that the time might

 

come when they could safely say in public what they were saying in the privacy of their

own home and circles.”

About vincepalamara

Vincent Palamara was born in Pittsburgh and graduated from Duquesne University with a degree in Sociology. Although not even born when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, Vince brings fresh eyes to an old case. In fact, Vince would go on to study the largely overlooked actions - and inactions - of the United States Secret Service in unprecedented detail, as well as achieving a world's record in the process, having interviewed and corresponded with over 80 former agents (the House Select Committee on Assassinations had the old record of 46 with a 6 million dollar budget and supboena power from Congress), not to mention many surviving family members, White House aides, and even quite a few Parkland and Bethesda medical witnesses for a corresponding project. The result was Survivor's Guilt: The Secret Service & The Failure To Protect President Kennedy. Vince is also the author of the books JFK: From Parkland To Bethesda and The Not-So-Secret Service. All told, Vince has been favorably mentioned in over 120 JFK and Secret Service related books to date (including two whole chapters in Murder in Dealey Plaza, The Secret Service: The Hidden History Of An Enigmatic Agency by Philip Melanson, and the Final Report of the Assassination Records Review Board, among many others), often at length, in the bibliographies, and in the Secret Service - and even medical evidence - areas of these works. Vince has appeared on the History Channel, C-SPAN, A COUP IN CAMELOT, KING KILL '63, THE MAN BEHIND THE SUIT, National Geographic, PCN, BPTV, local cable access television, YouTube, radio, newspapers, print journals, at national conferences, and all over the internet. Also, Vince's original research materials, or copies of said materials, are stored in the National Archives (by request under Deed Of Gift by the ARRB), the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, Harvard University, the Assassination Archives and Research Center, and the Dallas Public Library. Vince Palamara has become known (as he was dubbed by the History Channel in 2003) "the Secret Service expert." As former JFK Secret Service agent Joe Paolella proclaimed: "You seem to know a lot about the Secret Service, maybe even more than I do!" Agent Dan Emmett calls Vince a Secret Service expert in his new book.
