Ron Lewis Interview
Have you ever wondered what it might be like to know an infamous person in history? Ron Lewis knows. He knew Lee Harvey Oswald.
Ron first met Oswald in October, 1962, and off and on, stayed in touch with him 'til October 1963. It was in August of 1963, that Oswald told Lewis of a plan being developed to kill President Kennedy. Lewis did not go to law enforcement authorities with this story, for fear of reprisals.
Thirty one years later Ron tells his story in the book, Flashback: The Untold Story of Lee Harvey Oswald (P.O. Box 156 Winchester, Oregon 97495).
Travel back in time with Ron Lewis as he recounts his friendship with one of the most mysterious men that ever walked on the face of this earth - Lee Harvey Oswald.
Q: Ron, I've always thought that Lee Harvey Oswald was one of the most
enigmatic men that ever lived. He's become whatever you want him to be.
He's guilty, he's innocent. He's a marksman. He's a poor shot. He's a
loving husband. He's a wife beater. He's a patriot. He's a Communist.
But, above everything else, what stands out about Oswald, was a man who
was looking for respect, and recognition. Is that the way you viewed
Lee Harvey Oswald?
Q: In your book you state that Lee may not have
known his rifle had been removed from his place of residence since
he had denied taking it with him to work. Lee's friend, Wesley Frazier,
gave him a ride into work on November 22. Mr. Frazier asked Lee what
he was carrying in the package he had, and Oswald replied, "Curtain rods." To
my knowledge, no one ever found any curtain rods in the School Book
Depository Building. Since you don't believe Lee Oswald carried in
a rifle, and no one has ever found any curtain rods, what was in that
package Lee was carrying in?
