Clay Shaw
Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
    His middle name was LaVerne.
    He was a closeted homosexual.
    He was a chain smoker, which probably contributed to his death from lung cancer.
    He was suing Garrison for defamation when he died; since he had no surviving relatives, the suit was dismissed.
    He was buried under a gravestone marked ‘Clay L.’ with no last name.
    Outside of New Orleans, he is remembered solely as the only person brought to trial for the Kennedy assassination.
    As an officer in the Supply Corps during World War II, he stockpiled and organized supplies for the Normandy invasion.
    He was decorated by three countries: he received the Legion of Merit and Bronze Star from the US and the Croix de Guerre from France, and was named a Chevalier of the Order of the Crown of Belgium.
    He restored over 20 buildings in New Orleans’ historic French Quarter.
    He praised JFK’s ‘youth, imagination, style and elan,’ and many of his programs, particularly the Alliance for Progress for Latin America.
    Garrison claimed that Shaw was the ‘Clay Bertrand’ who contacted attorney Dean Andrews about representing Lee Harvey Oswald, even though Andrews described Bertrand as young and blonde, while Shaw was 50ish and prematurely gray.
    He was acquitted in less than an hour after the case went to the jury (March 1, 1969).
    One of Garrison’s researchers, Tom Bethell, said, ‘I agree with the jury that he was totally innocent. There was no credible evidence that he knew either Oswald or [David] Ferrie, let alone planned to shoot JFK.’
