      Trying to follow the trail of the ever-elusive Jack Ruby from November 20 through November 24, 1963 was a lesson in frustration. True to his nocturnal habits, Jack was, as always, the "man about town". The Warren Report, in tracing Ruby's movements, placed their own interpretation on the occurrences of those four days—and, in some instances, skewed times, and in other instances, decided the witness was simply wrong. (Example, Seth Kantor testimony) We have enclosed the Commission's report on Ruby's activities for comparison purposes.
In the process of writing this paper we rapidly became aware that many witnesses estimated time, and then swore to their recollections. We did not feel it was our responsibility to separate the "wheat from the chaff" although more factual evidence often indicated the witness' recollections could not be accurate. We also discovered that the Commission relied heavily on Jack's own statements regarding his "comings and goings" and backed him up with selected, and supportive, testimony of witnesses.
We carefully checked witness testimonies, particularly primary statements made shortly after the assassination. By the time Warren Commission testimony was taken, sometimes four or five months after the assassination, "time" recollections often changed. For example, even though Eva Grant, Jack's sister, was shown her original statements, she still relied heavily on Jack's trial to recall certain events. Other witnesses relied on friends and associates to reconsider their recollections and others stuck to their original statements. In instances where testimonies changed, we have cited the date of the interview to allow the reader to assess the plausibility of the time sequence.
The extensive use of phone records belonging to Ralph Paul, Eva Grant, the Carousel, and Jack's home, were used to establish time sequences. However, one must be wary of the phone records—for instance, a call to the Bull Pen in Ft. Worth originating from the Carousel, does not necessarily mean that Jack was the person making the call, or that Ralph Paul was the recipient. By cross-checking witness statements, we were able to verify most telephone calls. We discovered that if Ralph Paul said he received a call from Ruby (which would have been long distance) and it was not recorded in the phone records, it does not necessarily mean that Paul was in error. We know, from Jack's own testimony, he made liberal use of public pay phones all over Dallas.
With a few exceptions—this timeline covers Jack's activities based on early testimonies from '63 and '64. With the recent release of thousands of documents concerning the events surrounding the assassination—new information may be found that would change the events as we have recorded them. This study has confirmed our belief that we were dealing with the just the "tip of the iceberg"!

NOTE: If all "sightings" are even close to being accurate—from 11-21 to 11-24—Jack Ruby slept a total of fourteen hours (or less). It has been suggested that Ruby's frenetic activity, of those four days in November, was a combination of drugs and grief over the assassination of the President.

(Ruby was an admitted user of the drug Preludin, an appetite suppressant)

Or was Ruby driven to react as a man possessed, by other, more sinister, forces?
