(Testimony of Earl Ruby Resumed)

Mr. Griffin.
If you would get us that we would appreciate it, yes.
Mr. Ruby.
Shall I mail it just here the same address?

Testimony of Mrs. Eva Grant

Mr. Griffin.
Mrs. Eva Grant
Mr. Griffin.
The testimony of Mrs. Eva Grant was taken at 3:30 p.m., on May 28, 1964, in the office of the U.S. attorney, 301 Post Office Building, Bryan and Ervay Streets, Dallas, Tex., by Mr. Leon D. Hubert, Jr., assistant counsel of the President's Commission. Mrs. Eva Grant was accompanied by her attorney, Phil Burleson.
Mr. Hubert.
This is the deposition of Mrs. Eva Grant. Mrs. Grant is represented by Mr. Phil Burleson, her attorney.
Mrs. Grant, my name is Leon D. Hubert. I am a member of the advisory staff of the general counsel on the President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy. Under the provisions of Executive Order 11130, dated November 29, 1963, issued by President Johnson, the joint resolution of Congress No. 137, and the rules of procedure adopted by the President's Commission in conformance with the Executive order and that joint resolution, I have been authorized to take a sworn deposition from you. I state to you now that the general nature of this Commission's inquiry is to ascertain, evaluate, and report upon the facts relevant to the assassination of President Kennedy and the subsequent violent death of Lee Harvey Oswald. In particular, as to you, Mrs. Grant, the nature of the inquiry today is to determine what facts you know about the death of OSwald, and the life and activities of your brother, Jack Ruby, and any other pertinent facts that you may know about the general inquiry.
Now, Mrs. Grant, I believe that you appear here today by a request made to you by a letter from Mr. J. Lee Rankin, general counsel of the staff for the President's Commission. I ask you now if you have received that letter?
Mrs. Grant.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
Would you state to us, please, what the date of the letter is?
Mrs. Grant.
May 22.
Mr. Hubert.
And it was received by you on what date?
Mrs. Grant.
On the following date, I think, what is today--Thursday? I know I called here, it seems to me, Monday or Tuesday now.
Mr. Hubert.
In any case, you have no objection to the taking of this deposition at the present time?
Mrs. Grant.
No, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
Then, will you rise and raise your right hand so that I may administer the oath?
Do you solemnly swear that the testimony you are about to give will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mrs. Grant.
I do.
Mr. Hubert.
Will you state your full name, please, ma'am?
Mrs. Grant.
Well, I go under the name of Eva L. Grant.
Mr. Hubert.
How do you spell the first name?
Mrs. Grant.
Eva (spelling) E-v-a and "L." Let me explain something to you--I married a man who used the name Grant, but the name, which you will notice, is Granovsky, but I married him under that name and I used that name for at least 25 years. I married in 1936, so you figure it out.
Mr. Hubert.
And how old are you, Mrs. Grant?
Mrs. Grant.
Mr. Hubert.
And where do you reside?
Mrs. Grant.
3929 Rawlins, Dallas, Tex.
Mr. Hubert.
Are you at present occupied?
Mrs. Grant.
Mr. Hubert.
Now, in the course of this investigation I hope to conduct it in this way, that I will question you concerning certain segments or blocks or questions that will relate to a subject.
