About the Author:

The author, Diane Holloway, Ph.D., a retired Dallas psychologist, has painstakingly gathered the works of Lee H. Oswald over a period of ten years. She was involved with the psychological assessment of one of Oswald's targets, Major General Edwin Walker, when Attorney General Robert Kennedy ordered an evaluation because of Walker's bizarre anti-government activities.
She has provided insight about Oswald's frame of mind by using his words, his activities, and historical events which undoubtedly influenced him. She has also clarified events regarding Oswald's murder which had puzzled researchers for years.
Holloway, author of Before You Say I Quit,published in 1990 by Macmillan, lectures about the Kennedy assassination at Elderhostels, community groups and universities. Her closeness to events, Parkland Hospital personnel in Dallas where she worked at the time of the assassination, and Dallas Police Department Personnel, where she was later Drug Czar of Dallas, make her insights valuable.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

When a profound and historic event takes place in one's own town, it dramatically affects the emotions of all residents. An entire community feels involved in a search for motives; perhaps partly as a way to absolve themselves of some sense of community guilt. Such was the atmosphere in Dallas after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. To this day, the site most visited by tourists is the location of the assassination. It is unlikely that any person living in Dallas on November 22, 1963, has lost interest in the decades-long search for answers, no matter where they lived thereafter. This search has certainly included the author of this work.

This book developed out of a personal quest to understand Lee Harvey Oswald through analysis of his own words. Thus his writings and recorded words have been collected and arranged in chronological order from his youth to his death. It has allowed the author to develop some understanding, from a background in the field of psychology, to answer the question of whether Oswald was capable of or likely to have assassinated President Kennedy. While the murder of Oswald by Jack Ruby created more chaos, Ruby's movements are tracked following the assassination which helps to explain his act.

The first surprise encountered in this research effort was that Oswald's words have never before been collected and reported verbatim in their entirety in one volume. The second surprise was that by collecting his works, most of the questions which have mystified the public for so long were answered by him in his own words.
