This Sept. 26, 1964 file photo shows one of the exhibits contained in the Warren Commission report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The commission said the handbills in the image were samples of ones on which Lee Harvey Oswald had stamped his name and the name "A.J. Hidell". The image below was identified as showing Oswald distributing the handbills in New Orleans on Aug. 16, 1963. (AP Photo/Warren Commission)

From nearly the moment I met Lee Harvey Oswald, it seemed that he felt the world had sized him up wrong. He wasn’t much of a student, and the Marines overlooked his talent. But now his luck was changing. As virtually the only American living in Minsk, he became something of a celebrity in that provincial capital. Oswald assumed his experience as an American living in the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War would be tremendously valuable, and he was already drafting a memoir. He kept a journal, which he labeled “Historic Diary.” When he, Marina and little June touched down at Love Field, on June 14, 1962, he greeted his brother Robert by asking where the reporters were.

 So writes Paul Gregory in a fascinating New York Times magazine article, Lee Harvey Oswald Was My Friend.
