Harrison Edward Livingstone- he was a friend of mine

Harrison "Harry" Edward Livingstone, who passed away in February 2015 (just found out tonight), was an eccentric, prolific, talented, paranoid and tireless author of many books, including quite a few on the JFK assassination:

1) HIGH TREASON with Robert Groden (1989)- for all intents and purposes (other than John Davis' "Mafia Kingfish"), THE book that started my obsession on the JFK murder and the Secret Service. Warts and all (yes, it is a little dated now in places), this two-time NY Times best-seller is a seminal book on the case (I am mentioned in the 1998 and 2006 versions of this book)...

I mailed Livingstone a letter (actually, it was primarily meant for his co-author Groden at Conservatory Press, but Livingstone intercepted it and replied) in February 1991and he promptly wrote back and included this memorable line: "Unless you have something original to offer, don't bother. You'll just run yourself into the ground." Wise and cutting words, indeed, and inspiring, as well- I scrapped my original secondary-source laden manuscript FOR NATIONAL SECURITY and started to focus like a laser beam on the actions and inactions of the Secret Service, inspired in part by the modest chapter in Harry's book (thanks, Harry). I subsequently met Harry in person at the Third Decade conference in Fredonia, NY in June 1991-my coming out party, so to speak, as a researcher-and I began to work on primary research and helping Harry when I could, including a memorable two-day jaunt (11/22-11/23/91) to a nearby Pittsburgh suburb to film Bethesda x-ray tech Jerrol Custer (and Tom Wilson) for what would become Harry's second book (Harry thanked me in the book [the very first book I ever appeared in]):

2) HIGH TREASON 2 (1992)- another NY Times best-seller, thanks in large part to the hooplah over the Oliver Stone film (to which Harry had a chapter and was an ardent critic) "JFK". In my opinion, this is Harry's crowning achievement; excellent stuff on the medical evidence, in particular...then things got "harry" (pardon the pun)- I helped Harry once again in 1992 (going to Ohio to interview Steve Barber) for what would turn out to be his most controversial work:

3) KILLING THE TRUTH (1993)- this book, while having some important information in spots, greatly alienated the critical community towards Harry (and vice versa) due in large part to Harry's criticism of several sacred cows in the community (I am mentioned in this one, as well);

4) KILLING KENNEDY (1995)- NOT to be confused with the later Bill O'Reilly junk with the same title, this was a somewhat mixed bag of a book (I am mentioned in this one, too);

5) THE RADICAL RIGHT AND THE MURDER OF JOHN F. KENNEDY (2006)- Harry's best book (and last good one) since HIGHT TREASON 2 (yes, I am mentioned in this one). A good synthesis of what was good about his prior works, along with a few new items and surprises;

AND THE REST-
6) THE HOAX OF THE CENTURY (2004)- Z-FILM-IS-ALTERED 'stuff';
7) PANJANDRUM (2013)- JFK X-RAY faulty expose
8) KALEIDOSCOPE (2012)- a too critical attack on Doug Horne
CONTRIBUTED TO-
9) TEXAS IN THE MORNING by Madelaine Brown
10) FROM AN OFFICE BUILDING WITH A HIGH-POWERED RIFLE by Don Adams

Not to mention many other non-JFK novels and books of interest.

Harry inspired me greatly and started my path into PRIMARY, ORIGINAL research and thinking AND being my own person in the community, even if that meant being a "loner" at times within it.

I will remember the good times and miss him. Not everyone will, for he alienated some (a lot?)...but I will always be grateful.

Thanks, Harry. RIP. I hope you get to talk to JFK now- you idolized him so.

Harry passed in February. I received the news today. Anyone wishing to participate in Harry’s memory may contact me.Bob Oliver 831 383-2676 boboliver9@gmail.com
