Dr. Mary, JFK and the Monkey Virus
Bookmark and Share
Richard welcomes a author and researcher to discuss how the unsolved murder of a doctor, a secret laboratory in New Orleans and cancer-causing monkey viruses are linked to Lee Harvey Oswald, the JFK assassination and emerging global epidemics. Then, the truth behind some of the most well-known rock and roll urban legends.
Episode Segments:
The Conspiracy Show: Dr. Mary and The Monkey Virus
Ed Haslam helps us fathom what has really happened in our country. The grisly homicide of a nationally-known surgeon in 1964 New Orleans sets the stage for a chilling exposé of scientists and spooks in shadowy hidden laboratories. His modest investigation more than 20 years ago into the curious life and shocking death of the brilliant Tulane medical professor Dr. Mary Sherman, he couldn’t have imagined that this inquiry would connect some of the city’s most prominent citizens to “lone nut” Lee Harvey Oswald, to the Mafia, and to forces high inside the U.S. Government — nor that these new discoveries would ultimately change our understanding of a fateful November day in Dallas.

Ed Haslam
Ed Haslam, the author of Dr. Mary’s Monkey, was born in Kansas where his family had lived for several generations. His grand-parents were the school-teachers and country-doctors of the prairie. Shortly after his birth in 1951, his father (who had just returned from Harvard and the U.S. Navy) accepted a position teaching at Tulane Medical School in New Orleans. During the next 35 years that Ed Haslam lived in New Orleans, he personally heard and saw things that involved the investigation into the Kennedy Assassination, the murder of one of his father colleagues, and claims of biological weapons to be used for political purposes. Haslam’s 1969 comment: “If there is a bizarre global epidemic involving cancer and a monkey virus thirty years from now, at least we’ll know where is came from” states his concerns clearly.

Haslam’s education was that of a well-placed New Orleans male. He attended Jesuit High School in the late-1960s. The background event of these years was Jim Garrison’s investigation into the JFK assassination. Haslam had teachers, classmates and friends whose family members were involved in the case in one way or another. This experience gave him an “insider perspective” of these events.
