Ford reaffirms his position—"Lee Harvey Oswald was the assassin"

TLS signed “Gerald R. Ford,” one page, 6.5 x 8.5, personal letterhead, December 4, 1995. Letter to Bill Van Laethem, in part: "I am deeply grateful for your thoughtful letter in reference to my views as a member of the Warren Commission on the assassination of President Kennedy…As the sole surviving member of the Commission, I feel obligated to reaffirm: Lee Harvey Oswald was the assassin and the Commission found no evidence of a conspiracy foreign or domestic. If you have time I would recommend the book—Case Closed by Gerald Posner, which does an excellent job on the tragedy of President Kennedy's assassination." In very fine condition.
