Thanks Mark!

Joseph please get your thoughts about the new Alexandra book circulating widely. What about an amazon review linking so some of your own work?


If you write it I will spread it everywhere. I plan on writing a quickie, but I do not have time to write a good one.


More amazon reviews of horrible books need to be written. Otherwise we allow no access ramps for new, more general readers.

Mr McBride I spent a about a half hour jumping around in the book today. Was particularly interested in the background it gave on C.D. Jackson. The first group of Jackson pages is from 225-231 and there was no backbackground at all for C.D, other than his work for Life magazine and quickly morphing into C.D. concern for backwards through the looking glass musing on what may have been considered good taste in 1963 in lieu of (or in L.E.I.U. of ) Jackson's CIA and military experiences or those of the Luce Family, conversions and speedboats included.

Did you notice any background on C.D. Jackson at all in her book? Will listen to your interview now.. Any additional thoughts on her book would be appreciated.

Of course we should always bear in mind the unique Luce appreciation for the nuclear family.

Thank you! Great to see something bridging across the moats. This really matters. I know because I study amazon numbers in order to seem more exotic to the females of my species.


Too often the there are only one or two real one star reviews of horrible books. The rest our Texas Team for the Olympic ubiquity team talking about breasts and Lyndon Johnson, and or some other brain dead one star reviews from a right wing pin head.

The psychological effect of this is tremendous in increasing sales for horrible books like this one and also the Larry Tye book on RFK.

Try the link posted by Mark above. Peter and I also had trouble but that one worked.

Alexandra Zapruder takes to the friendly pages of the NY Times
to attack conspiracy theorists. She wraps in accusations against
her grandfather (including a couple I made in my Amazon review
of her book on the Zapruder film) with the ridiculous "Pizzagate" theory, a familiar
dodge in linking JFK assassination researchers by innuendo
to false theories having nothing to do with the case. It would have been better for her to deal with theories
about the Zapruder film more fully in her book.

(Nathaniel, thank you for the inspiration. Reading your post, I recalled that Henry Cushman Breck, father of Henry Reynolds Breck described below, was a friend of Charles Douglas,
aka C. Douglas, aka C.D. Jackson and so I took another look....)

There were 180 million residents in the USA in 1960. Jock Whitney owned 80 percent of Freeport's stock shares. He grants lifelong residency on his LI estate to Bonesman Tex McCrary and McCrary's wife, Jinx. Jinx's aunt, her mother's sister, is the mother of Miss Priscilla's closest friend, Jane Macatee Davidson. McCrary's brother turned down his Bones tap, but he married D. Stewart Iglehart's (President of WR Grace) daughter.


Tex McCrary's niece, the daughter of his brother Douglas McCrary and Stewart Igelhart's (Bonesman and Tex's close friend) sister, Wendy, married CIA agent Henry Reynolds Breck in 1973. :


....Other coincidences are that in 1964, Anthony A. Lapham married Burk Bingham, cousin of Jock Whitney. Henry R. Breck was not a member of Lapham's wedding party; not unusual since Breck and Lapham had not attended prep school (Groton v. Phillips Andover) college (Harvard v. Yale) or law school together (Oxford v. Georgetown).

However, by 1973, as you can read in the article image of the wedding of Douglas A. McCrary's daughter Wendy and Henry R. Breck, [B]Breck had become so close to Lapham that Breck is the godfather of Lapham's son, Nicholas, and Anthony Lapham is Breck's best man.

The two men did not serve in the same branch of the military and the CIA's descriptions of their careers do not overlap, up to 1973, in any way......

Henry Breck s the godfather of bonesman Lewis Lapham's grandson. Lapham's son, Anthony was best man in Breck's wedding. Anthony Lapham's wife Burks' father was bonesman Harry Payne Bingham.

Anthony A. Lapham was sponsored by bonesman David C. Acheson and then by bonesman George HW Bush.:

DAVID C. ACHESON. First Interview - January 27, 2010....


The incestuous connections and the unlimited private wealth and access and influence to and over political power (policy and accountability) may explain a string of these mysteries. Maybe even why Edward Thompson of Reader's Digest ran Epstein and Hurt, while the son of Thompson's father's assistant at Life Magazine and in USAAF Intel duting WWII, Maitland Eddy, ended up hiring Robert E. Webster, and why Katherine Ford informed the FBI that Marina claimed she met LHO after he breezed into Moscow as a participant in the Science Exhibition. At the center of almost all Bush "events" are Jock Whitney or Godfrey Rockefeller, both Freeport directors, both Scroll & Key, which is how I came to post in your thread here in the first place. ....

[/B]CD Jackson and Parker Lloyd-Smith were classmates at the Hill School in Pottstown, PA, graduating in 1920 from the Hill and from Princeton in 1924.
The Hill School is a small boarding Princeton "feeder" school and its wikipedia page displays 575 students enrolled. There were less in 1918, all enrolled students are listed in the 1918 yearbook.

The Jackson and Lloyd-Smith are headliners in the Commencement 1917 page included in the 1918 yearbook since they are two of only four names earning first honors.
Lloyd-Smith is also displayed as head of third form in the school year ending in June, 1917. My point is that aside from locals all other students boarded at Hill School and these two were very prominent.

Fortune was founded by Time co-founder Henry Luce in 1929 as "the Ideal Super-Class Magazine", a "distinguished and de luxe" publication "vividly portraying, interpreting and recording the Industrial Civilization".
[SUP][/SUP].....[SUP][/SUP] The publication made its official debut in February 1930. Its editor was Luce, managing editor Parker Lloyd-Smith, and art director Thomas Maitland Cleland.[SUP][7]....[/SUP]

From C.D. Jackson's September, 1964 Obituary :
Quote:http://www.nytimes.com/1964/09/20/c-d-ja....html?_r=0
...........
Mr. Jackson was born here March 16, 1902. As a boy he accompanied his father, a mar*ble and stone importer, on an*nual business trips to Europe. After elementary schooling in Switzerland, he attended the Hill. School in Pottstown, Pa. He graduated from Princeton in 1924.
He had planned to stay at Princeton as an instructor in French, but his father's death made it necessary for him to take over the family business. Like his father, he traveled ex*tensively through Europe, pur*chasing marble and other building materials.
Sold Business in 1931
The Depression hit the busi*ness hard however and he sold it in 1931. In the fall of that year, Mr. Jackson called upon Henry R. Luce, editor in chief of Time, and persuaded him that he could be helpful despite his lack of a journalistic back*ground.
"I guess I psychologically warfared them into giving me a job," Mr. Jackson recalled later.
His first title in the organiza*tion was assistant to the presi*dent.



Continue reading the main story
Six years later, when Life magazine was established, Mr. Jackson became its general manager. In 1940 he was made a vice president of Time, Inc., the parent organization. His work in this post was adminis*trative, with the emphasis on trouble‐shooting and public re*lations............

The facts leading up to C.D. Jackson's hiring by Luce in fall, 1931 are presented without the most interesting details. A January 24, 1926 wedding announcement of groom William Draper Blair names two of the wedding ushers
as C.D. Jackson and Parker Lloyd-Smith. C.D. Jackson was married to Grace Bristed on Saturday, Sept. 12, 1931, and two of his ushers described in thewedding announcement the next day were William D. Blair and Parker Lloyd-Smith.

This article is dated five days after Jackson's wedding.:

Young Editor Leaps To Death

Facts - C.D. Jackson was very intelligent and an opportunist.
These attributes did not escape the notice of Henry Luce and likely also not the notice of two older Hill school classmates who roomed together at Princeton for two years, Walker Brainerd Spencer and Philip Grandin Strong.

In 1927 Spencer was best man in the New Orleans wedding of his lifelong friend, CIA's William P. Burke. In 1954, Philip G. Strong set in motion through meetings with his friend Kelly Johnson and a memo to Allen Dulles the development of an airplane
that earned Phil Strong the title, "Father of the U2".

I Never Knew My Grandfather, Only What He Pretended to Be

........
My grandfather sits on a train, waiting. It is early spring, 1937. His name is Philip Strong and he has boarded here in the Hamburg station, preparing to head to Berlin. Although I possess a volume of his letters from this trip, letters I have read many times, I am still not exactly sure why he is here.

He is 36 years old, a U.S. Marine Reserve Captain. But as a reserve officer, he is not travelling in uniform, instead he's wearing an old tweed jacket. He has a bulky backpack stashed on the overhead rack. In his pocket is tucked his smoking pipe along with a small pouch of his treasured Dunhill tobacco.....

How likely do you think it was that Burke's longtime friend, best man in his wedding, host of buffet dinners in support of Burke's daughter's carnival high society activities, was not aware that Burke, as well as his own best friend at prep school and university, Phil Strong were both in high positions at CIA, or that Burke was not well acquainted with Phil Strong?

The book's disingenuous lack of interest in Jackson's background --
coupled with a refusal to do basic research into this subject --
is symptomatic of its approach. JM
