Malcolm O. Couch

Testimony of Malcolm O. Couch

The testimony of Malcolm O. Couch was taken at 9:43 a.m., on April 1, 1964, in the office of the U.S. attorney, 301 Post Office Building, Bryan and Ervay Streets, Dallas, Tex., by Mr. David W. Belin, assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Belin.
Will you please rise and raise your right hand and be sworn, sir?
Do you solemnly swear that the testimony you're about to give will be the the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mr. Couch.
I do.
Mr. Belin.
Be seated, please.
Mr. Belin.
You are Malcolm O. Couch?
Mr. Couch.
That's right.
Mr. BELIN. Mr. Couch, we are taking your deposition here in Dallas to record your testimony for the President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy---is that correct?
Mr. Couch.
That's right, sir.
Mr. BELIN. Do you request that an attorney be present here to represent you?
Mr. Couch.
No.
Mr. BELIN. We have written you about the taking of this deposition and I assume that you have waived notice of the taking of the deposition-is that correct?
Mr. Couch.
That's right.
Mr. BELIN. Mr. Couch, you have the right to look at the deposition and sign it, or you can follow the general custom and rely on the court reporter and waive the signing of the deposition---whatever you would like to do. If you would like to sign it, you can; if you want to waive signing it, you can also. Whatever you want to do.
Mr. Couch.
All right. I'll sign it.
Mr. Belin.
You want to sign it?
Mr. Couch.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Belin.
All right.
Mr. COUCH, where do you live?
Mr. Couch.

Mr. Belin.
And how old are you?
Mr. Couch.
Twenty-five.
Mr. Belin.
And were you born in Texas?

And what is your educational background? Did you go through high school?

Mr. COUCH. I went to Woodrow Wilson High School here in Dallas, I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from John Brown University; and I will receive a Master of Theology degree this May from Dallas Seminary.
Mr. BELIN. You then plan, when you receive your Master of Theology degree, to become a minister?
Mr. Couch.
I will be ordained. I don't know if I will have a church or not, but I will be ordained.
Mr. Belin.
Are you married, Mr. Couch?
Mr. Couch.
Yes.
Mr. Belin.
Any family at all?
