AFFIDAVIT OF ERWIN DONALD LEWIS
The following affidavit was executed by Erwin Donald Lewis on June 6, 1964.
PRESIDENT'S COMMISSION ON THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY
STATE OF CALIFORNIA,
Orange County, ss:
I, Erwin Donald Lewis, 9682 Mystic Lane, Anaheim, California, being first duly sworn, depose and say:
That while I was in the United States Marine Corps, I served in Marine Air Control Squadron #9 in Santa And, California, with Lee Harvey Oswald. I knew him only casually as a working acquaintance.
Oswald, a radar operator, was very quiet, kept to himself, and did not appear to have any close friends. To the best of my knowledge, he seldom left the base.
It was a matter of common knowledge among squadron members that he could read, write, and speak Russian.
I know from personal observation that he read the "Daily Worker." I heard--although of this I am not completely certain--that he had a subscription to that publication.
Signed this 6th day of June, 1964.
(S)Erwin Donald Lewis,
ERWIN DONALD LEWIS.
