(Testimony of Mrs. Mary Jane Robertson)

Testimony of Lyndal L. Shaneyfelt

The testimony of Lyndal L. Shaneyfelt was taken .at 3:40 p.m., on June 12, 1964, at 200 Maryland Avenue NE., Washington, D.C., by Mr. Melvin Aron Eisenberg, assistant counsel of the President's Commission.

(The oath was administered by the reporter.)

Mr. Shaneyfelt.
I do.
Mr. Eisenberg.
Could you state your full name, Mr. Shaneyfelt?
Mr. Shaneyfelt.
Yes; Lyndal L. Shaneyfelt.
Mr. Eisenberg.
And you have testified before the Commission in this proceeding before?
Mr. Shaneyfelt.
Yes; I have.
Mr. Eisenberg.
We will not rehearse your qualifications again, since you have already been accepted as an expert in the field in which you are going to be questioned today.
Mr. Shaneyfelt, I hand you a photograph marked Shaneyfelt Exhibit No. 1, consisting of a photograph of Lee Harvey Oswald holding a rifle, and I ask you whether you prepared that photograph?
Mr. Shaneyfelt.
Yes; I did.
Mr. Eisenberg.
Is this a photograph of an existing Commission exhibit?
Mr. Shaneyfelt.
Yes; this is a copy of the small photograph that is a part of Commission Exhibit No. 133.
Mr. Eisenberg.
That would be 133-A?
Mr. Shaneyfelt.
I don't recall whether it is A or B.
Mr. Eisenberg.
I hand you photographs of Commission Exhibits Nos. 133-A and 133-B and ask if this serves to refresh your recollection as to whether Shaneyfelt Exhibit No. 1 is a photograph of 133-A or 133-B?
Mr. Shaneyfelt.
Yes; Shaneyfelt Exhibit No. 1 is a copy of the Commission Exhibit No. 133-A.
Mr. Eisenberg.
Now, Mr. Shaneyfelt, I hand you the cover of Life magazine, issue of February 21, 1964, which I have labeled Shaneyfelt Exhibit No. 2, and I ask you if this is a photograph which you have previously examined in connection with earlier testimony given by you to the Commission?
Mr. Shaneyfelt.
That is correct.
Mr. Eisenberg.
I hand you page 80 of the same issue of Life, which is labeled Shaneyfelt Exhibit No. 3, and I ask you the same question, that is, whether this is the photograph you have previously discussed in connection with earlier testimony?
Mr. Shaneyfelt.
Yes; it is.
Mr. Eisenberg.
Now, for the record, I am using duplicate originals rather than the actual exhibits, because the actual exhibits are now being printed up by the Government Printing Office.
Mr. Shaneyfelt, I hand you the front page of the Detroit Free Press, issue of February 17, 1964, Containing a picture similar to Shaneyfelt Exhibit No. 1, and the other pictures thus far referred to---and I am labeling this Detroit Free Press page Shaneyfelt Exhibit No. 4 and ask you whether you have examined the picture of Lee Harvey Oswald and a rifle appearing on that exhibit?
Mr. Shaneyfelt.
Yes; I have.
Mr. Eisenberg.
Did you compare this picture with 133-A or Shaneyfelt Exhibit No. 1, your reproduction of 133-A?
Mr. Shaneyfelt.
Yes; I did.
Mr. Eisenberg.
What was your conclusion on the basis of that comparison?
Mr. Shaneyfelt.
I found that the reproduction of the photograph of Oswald holding the gun on Shaneyfelt Exhibit No. 4 has insufficient detail to warrant positive identification as being the same photograph as Shaneyfelt Exhibit No. 1.
However, I did find that the photograph in the newspaper, Exhibit No. 4, is consistent in all respects with the photograph which is Exhibit No. 1, except for variations in retouching that are a normal part of the process of making halftone reproductions from photographs for newspapers. I further found that
