Martin Shackelford Through The Years

    Martin Shackelford, of Saginaw, Michigan, is a well-known and respected JFK researcher of the conspiracy persuasion. He has kindly made available to me a series of photographs of him from 1964 through 2005, which I present here as the next step in my continuing campaign "Posters are people, too" for the JFK newsgroup alt.assassination.jfk. This is the fifth photo show in the series, the first four being Steve Barber, Rob Spencer, John McAdams, and Pamela McElwain-Brown.
    One of the photos may be of particular interest to people who have followed the discussions about Judyth Vary Baker. It shows Martin with Judyth, Anna Lewis, and Howard Platzman.

1966, around the time of first doubts about the report.
