1.The missing negative.
HSCA VI, p 139
(1) History of the Backyard Photographs
In the early afternoon of
November 23, 1963, Dallas detectives obtained a warrant to search
the Paine residence in Irving, Tex., where Marina Oswald had been
living. (125) The search concentrated primarily on a garage in
which possessions of the Oswalds were, stored. Among the belongings,
Dallas Police officials found a brown cardboard box containing
personal papers and photographs, including two snapshot negatives
of Oswald holding a rifle. (126) (Only one negative was made available
to the Warren Commission; the other has never been accounted for.)
2. The Dees (White) Photo
HSCA VI, p 141
The committee obtained an 8 X 10 print of an
additional view of Oswald holding the rifle in a pose different
from CE 133-A or generation print, * was given to the committee
on December 30, 1976 by Mrs. Geneya Dees of Paris, Tex,
According to Mrs. Dees, it had been acquired
by her former husband, Roscoe White, now deceased, while employed
with the Dallas Police at the time of the assassination. The panel
designated this recently discovered photograph as 133-C.
3. The deMohrenshchildt Photo
HSCA VI, p141
The committee obtained another first generation
print 133-A on April l, 1977 from the window of George de Mohrenschildt.
In the manuscript of his book, which he was writing at the time
of his death in 1977, he stated that he and his wife had found
the photograph in February 1967 among personal belongings they
had stored in Dallas before departing for Haiti in May 1963.
(381) On review of 133A-deMohrenschildt (see
figs. IV-2O and IV-21, JFK exhibits F-382 (front) and F-383 (reverse),
the panel noted that it had been probably made in a high quality
enlarged with a high quality lens.
Nevertheless the print has become yellowed with the passage
of time indicating that it was not adequately fixed or washed
during the development process.
(382) The uncropped black border around the
edge of this print indicates that it was projected in an enlarger
with it negative carrier that was larger than the actual full
size negative of CE 133-A. This type of equipment might be found
in a graphic arts shop or photo printing shop that uses many sizes
of negatives. It is also possible that the paper easel might not
have had the capability of masking a print this size.
As a result, the entire negative area is printed and the unexposed
border area outside the full camera aperture has been recorded
as black on the print. Because people normally like to have white
borders on their pictures, this is an unusual way of presenting
The sharpness of the markings (from the film scratches) within
this black border, as well as the presence of fine scratches and
emulsion tears. indicates that this is a first generation print.
Another Marine photo of Oswald?

Robert Groden published his book, "The Search For Lee Harvey
Oswald," where he shows a photo captioned "Lee in Japan
on guard duty with a rifle sometime in 1958." According to
the sources listed in this book the picture is from the National
