(Testimony of Philip Eugene Vinson)

Mr. Liebeler.
anybody that ever mounted a scope or claimed to have mounted a scope for Oswald?
Mr. Vinson.
No. My connection with the whole thing has not amounted to anything. I came to Dallas the day of the assassination because my newspaper sent practically everybody over here. I was at the police station. I am not a photographer. However, I carry a camera, and I was sent to the Dallas Police Station to take pictures, because I was the only one in the vicinity with a camera at that time. And I stayed there until the photographer arrived, with my camera, and just sort of generally ran errands. I didn't do any actual reporting, but that was when it first came to my attention.
Well, let me rephrase that. When I heard the name Lee Oswald, when the reporter said that the best suspect they had in custody was Lee Oswald, immediately it rang a bell, and almost immediately I remembered when I had heard it, and I associated it with my second grade class, and I even mentioned it to some of the reporters over there that day, over here that day.
Mr. Liebeler.
Unless there is anything else that you can remember about-your contacts with Oswald or your conversations with others about him that you think would be helpful, I have no other questions at this point, I would like to thank you for coming over from Fort Worth on such short notice.
Mr. Vinson.
I am happy to do it.
Mr. Liebeler.
The Commission appreciates your cooperation.

Hiram Conway

Testimony of Hiram Conway

The testimony of Hiram Conway was taken at 11:50 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. Albert E. Jennet, Jr., assistant counsel of the President's Commission. Robert T. Davis, assistant attorney general of Texas, was present.
Mr. Jenner.
Would you mind rising and being sworn. Do you in the testimony you are about to give swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?
Mr. Conway.
I do.
Mr. Jenner.
I am Albert E. Jenner, Jr. I am a member of the legal staff of the Warren Commission about which you have heard. The Warren Commission was authorized by a Senate Joint resolution of the Congress of the United States to be created to investigate the circumstances leading to and surrounding the assassination of our late President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Pursuant to that legislation President Lyndon B. Johnson by Executive Order 11130, November 1963, appointed the Commission to investigate the assassination of President Kennedy. The Chief Justice of the United States, the Honorable Earl Warren is the Chairman of that Commission and the Commission has come to be known as the Warren Commission.
The Commission is charged with sifting out the facts from fiction and to inquire into many, many details, one of which deals with a man whose name is Lee Harvey Oswald, during his lifetime. We understand you had some contact with a man by that name?
Mr. Conway.
Yes.
Mr. Jenner.
And we want to ask you a few questions about it.
Mr. Conway.
I will be glad to answer them.
Mr. Jenner.
All right., Mr. Conway, you are Hiram Conway and you are a native Texan, are you?
Mr. Conway.
Yes.
Mr. Jenner.
What is your age?
Mr. Conway.
I'm 57, will be 58 next month.
Mr. Jenner.
I will be 57 next June. You reside in Fort Worth, Tex.?
Mr. Conway.
Yes.
Mr. Jenner.
And your business, occupation, or profession is what?
Mr. Conway.
Tool inspector for General Dynamics.
Mr. Jenner.
The General Dynamics Corp.?
