Hearings Before the President’s Commission
Assassination of President Kennedy
TESTIMONY OF EVERETT D. GLOVER
The testimony of Everett D. Glover was taken at 11 a.m., on March 24, 1964, in the office of the U.S. attorney, 301 Post Office Building, Bryan and Ervay Streets, Dallas, Tex., by Mr. Albert E. Jenner, Jr., assistant counsel of the President’s Commission.
Mr. Jenner. Mr. Glover, would you stand? Do you promise to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth in response to my questions in the taking now of your deposition?
Mr. Glover. I do.
Mr. Jenner. Mr. Glover, you have received, I think, sometime last week a letter from Mr. Rankin, general counsel for the Commission, advising you we desire to take your testimony by deposition.
Mr. Glover. Advising me that you wanted to take my testimony. I don’t know whether it was specifically deposition, but yes.
Mr. Jenner. Now the Commission has been established to investigate and report all the circumstances surrounding the assassination of President Kennedy and any participation by Lee Harvey Oswald and Marina Oswald and others in that tragic event.
We understand that you had some acquaintance with the Oswalds as well as people in the community who, in turn, had an acquaintance with the Oswald’s, and that you also had an acquaintance with George De Mohrenschildt, naming him in particular, although there are others I will probably examine you about. But it is in those general areas that I will proceed.
Now you are at liberty to have counsel present should you so desire, and since you don’t appear to have anybody with you, I assume you do not wish any counsel?
Mr. Glover. That’s right.
Mr. Jenner. Your name is Everett D. Glover?
Mr. Glover. Right.
Mr. Jenner. Do you reside in Dallas, Tex.?
Mr. Glover. Right.
Mr. Jenner. Where is your present residence?
Mr. Glover. My present residence is 9838 Webbs Chapel Road, Dallas, 20.
Mr. Jenner. How long have you resided there, sir?
Mr. Glover. Since January 1, of this year, 1964.
Mr. Jenner. Where did you reside immediately prior to that?
Mr. Glover. 5723 Southwestern Boulevard. I forget the zone in Dallas.
Mr. Jenner. How long had you resided there?
Mr. Glover. Sometime around April 20, of 1963.
Mr. Jenner. I will have to keep going back. Where did you live prior to that?
Mr. Glover. I lived at 4449 Potomac in Dallas also. It is in University Park.
Mr. Jenner. For what span of time?
Mr. Glover. Span of time there, I don’t have the figures right in my mind, but approximately 2 years there.
Mr. Jenner. That would take you back to sometime in 1961?
Mr. Glover. Yes. We’d have to check these to be sure, this is approximately.
Mr. Jenner. That is sufficient. I will ask you this general question. Over how long have you resided in Dallas or the Dallas area?
Mr. Glover. Since 1955. June 2, 1955, I took a position with Socony Mobil Oil Co. and came here to work on that day. I have lived here since that time.
Mr. Jenner. Are you married?
Mr. Glover. I am married; yes.
Mr. Jenner. Do you have a family?
Mr. Glover. Well, I am married for the second time at the present time. My former wife and a son by my former marriage are living in Pennsylvania.
Mr. Jenner. Of what country are you a native?
Mr. Glover. United States.
Mr. Jenner. You were born in the United States?
Mr. Glover. Oh, yes.
Mr. Jenner. How old are you?
Mr. Glover. 47 years old.
Mr. Jenner. Where were you born in the United States?
Mr. Glover. I was born i
