(Affidavit of Donald Peter Camarata)

Although I have no firm impression of the level of Oswald's intelligence, he was a man who attempted to make other people believe he was intelligent.
I know from rumor that Oswald received a newspaper printed in Russian. I was informed by my fellow Marines that one of his superiors either the First Sergeant or a Lieutenant--asked Oswald why he read this paper.
I have no recollection of Oswald's studying or speaking either Spanish or German: of any remarks on his part concerning Communism, Russia, or Cuba; of his religious beliefs: of any abnormal attitude toward women on his part; or of his receiving any visitors.
Oswald was nicknamed "Oz".
Signed this 19th day of May, 1964, at Santa Cruz, Calif.
(S) Donald Peter Camarata,
DONALD PETER CAMARATA.

Peter Francis Connor

Affidavit of Peter Francis Connor

The following affidavit was executed by Peter Francis Conner on May 22, 1964.

PRESIDENT'S COMMISSION
ON THE ASSASSINATION OF AFFIDAVIT
PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY

STATE OF CONNECTICUT,
County of New Haven, ss:
I, Peter Francis Conner, 27 Flaum Drive, West Haven, Connecticut, being first duly sworn, depose and say:
That, while I was in the Marine Corps, I was stationed at Atsugi, Japan, with Lee Harvey Oswald.
Oswald had the reputation of being a good worker. I observed that he was not personally neat. I remember that while Oswald was in Japan, he wore an expert rifleman's medal.
I never heard Oswald make any anti-American or pro-Communist statements. He claimed to be named after Robert E. Lee, whom he characterized as the greatest man in history.
Although Oswald engaged in several fights--one of them with a Robert Demurs--I have no recollection as to how good a fighter he was.
Oswald did not choose to associate with his fellow Marines, nor did they choose to associate with him. He often responded to the orders of his superiors with insolent remarks.
I have no recollection to how much Oswald drank.
I was of the opinion that Oswald was intelligent. He read a great deal, but I do not remember what sort of books he read.
Oswald was nicknamed "Harv." This was a shortened version of his middle name; for some reason it upset him to be called by it.
I have no recollection concerning Oswald's religious beliefs, his attitude toward women, or what he did off post.
Signed this 22d day of May, 1964, at West Haven, Conn.
(S) Peter Francis Connor,
PETER FRANCIS CONNOR.
