(Testimony of Mrs. Viola Peterman)

Testimony of Mrs. Myrtle Evans

The testimony of Mrs. Myrtle Evans was taken on April 7, 1964, at the Old Civil Courts Building, Royal and Conti Streets, New Orleans, La., by Mr. Albert E. Jenner, Jr., assistant counsel of the President's Commission.

Mrs. Myrtle Evans, 1910 Prytania Street, New Orleans, La., after first being duly sworn, testified as follows:

Mr. Jenner.
You are Mrs. Myrtle Evans, is that right?
Mrs. Evans.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
And your husband is Julian Evans, and he accompanied you here today, is that right?
Mrs. Evans.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
He is waiting outside until you complete your deposition?
Mrs. Evans.
Yes.
Mr. Jenner.
Mrs. Evans, are you a native of New Orleans?
Mrs. Evans.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
And your husband?
Mrs. Evans.
Yes; he was born in New York, but he was raised in New Orleans.
Mr. Jenner.
And you were born here?
Mrs. Evans.
Yes; I was
Mr. Jenner.
And you have no family, is that right?
Mrs. Evans.
That's right. Well, I have no immediate family. I have brothers and sisters, but I don't have any children.
Mr. Jenner.
All right. Are you acquainted with a person named Marguerite Oswald?
Mrs. Evans.
Yes; she was a very good friend of mine.
Mr. Jenner.
When did you first become acquainted with her?
Mrs. Evans.
In about 1930.
Mr. Jenner.
About 1930?
Mrs. Evans.
Something like that.
Mr. Jenner.
She was then about 26 or 27 years old, is that right?
Mrs. Evans.
Well, I guess that's about right.
Mr. Jenner.
She is either 56 or 57 right now.
Mrs. Evans.
Well, yes; she was about that then, I guess. I had met her between 1925 and 1930, about that time. I played cards with her.
Mr. Jenner.
What kind of cards? Bridge?
Mrs. Evans.
We played bridge, yes.
Mr. Jenner.
How did you become acquainted with her?
Mrs. Evans.
Well, through a friend, a mutual friend--hers and mine, and we used to play bridge together.
Mr. Jenner.
Was she married then?
Mrs. Evans.
She was separated from her first husband.
Mr. Jenner.
Where did she live then, do you know?
Mrs. Evans.
I think at that particular time she had a little apartment on North Carrollton. I never did visit her residence, so I don't know much about that. At that time she was living with her sister that lived right off of City Park, but it seems she had a basement apartment on North Carrollton. I don't think she was living there at that particular time. She did move in with her sister later, and from time to time she was with her, but at that particular time I don't think she was.
Mr. Jenner.
What's her sister's name?
Mrs. Evans.
Oh, I forget.
Mr. Jenner.
Murret?
Mrs. Evans.
Yes; Mrs. Murret.
Mr. Jenner.
Lillian Murret?
Mrs. Evans.
Yes; her first name is Lillian; yes, that's right.
Mr. Jenner.
Did that acquaintance continue for some years?
Mrs. Evans.
Well, I sort of quit playing cards, and I went and took an accounting course and went back to work, and I had not seen her for a while, and she remarried--to Oswald.
Mr. Jenner.
You learned of that, did you?
