NEW ORLEANS – At this year’s Lee Harvey Oswald Day, authors and historians are planning a day of events to call on federal authorities to release all files relating to the President John F. Kennedy assassination on Thursday, Oct. 26, as mandated by the JFK Records Act.

         “NOLA & Lee on His 78th Birthday” starts with a press conference and rally on Wednesday, Oct. 18, at Lafayette Square, 602 Camp St. at 10:00 a.m. Speakers will include “Dr. Mary’s Monkey” author Ed Haslam and former Oswald paramour Judyth Vary Baker, author of “Me & Lee.”
