(Testimony of Mary E. Bledsoe)


William W. Whaley

Testimony of William W. Whaley

The testimony of William W. Whaley was taken at 1:50 p.m., on April 8, 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.
Would you want to stand and raise your right hand.
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?
Mr. Whaley.
I do, sir.
Mr. Belin.
Would you state your name, please.
Mr. Whaley.
William W. Whaley.
Mr. Belin.
You live in Dallas, Mr. Whaley?
Mr. Whaley.
Yes, sir.
Mr. BELIN. You previously testified before the Commission in Washington, is that correct?
Mr. Whaley.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Belin.
Now before you came to Washington, did you and I ever meet?
Mr. Whaley.
Your face is familiar, sir. I still can't tell you whether I knew you here, or in Washington, or where?
Mr. Belin.
Let me ask you this.
Mr. Whaley.
You refresh my memory.
Mr. Belin.
I will try to refresh your memory here. When did you come to Washington, approximately?
Mr. Whaley.
Well, it's been about 2 or 3 weeks ago, sir. I don't remember the exact date.
Mr. Belin.
You testified before the President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy in Washington, did you not?
Mr. Whaley.
Yes, sir.
Mr. BELIN. Now, Mr. Ball and I were with you earlier today over the noon hour, is that correct?
Mr. Whaley.
That's correct, sir.
Mr. Belin.
Mr. Ball and I saw you in Washington, is that correct?

Mr. WHALEY. Now I don't know if that is correct or not, but your face is very familiar.
Mr. Belin.
You think you have seen me before?
Mr. Whaley.
I don't know.
Mr. Belin.
It might have been in Washington when you were there?
Mr. Whaley.
Yes, sir; it could have been.
Mr. BELIN. Mr. Whaley, today at noon there were six people including yourself that got in the car to travel that route that you drove a passenger on November 22, is that correct?
Mr. Whaley.
Yes, sir.
Mr. BELIN. One of them is sitting here in this room, Dr. Goldberg, over there. Do you see him?
Mr. Whaley.
Yes, sir.
Mr. BELIN. Then you and I got in the car, and then Secret Service Agent John Joe Howlett. We drove in his car and he was the driver, wasn't he?
Mr. Whaley.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Belin.
Then there was Mr. Joe Ball, Joseph A. Ball, and then a Mr. Davis, this tall light-haired person?
Mr. Whaley.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Belin.
Mr. Davis is from the attorney general's office in Texas. Now what is the fact as to whether or not we went to the Greyhound Bus Depot here in Dallas?
Mr. Whaley.
Yes, sir.
Mr. BELIN. Did you point out the place where you said you picked up this passenger?
Mr. Whaley.
I did, sir.
Mr. Belin.
We had a stopwatch, didn't we?
Mr. Whaley.
Yes, sir.
