It was 47 years ago today that Judyth Vary Baker wrote the note of protest that ended her promising career as a cancer researcher, as told in her book Me & Lee The date was Aug. 30, 1963. If she had not written that note, she might well have become one of America’s top cancer researchers today. Instead, she lives out-of-the-country in self-imposed exile.

The book presents a case of covert terminal human-experimentation, plus the incredible, sheer and blatant fact that millions of us boomers, as trusting children, may have been given polio vaccine contaminated with cancer-causing monkey viruses

As told in her book Me & Lee, it was 47 years ago today that Judyth Vary Baker wrote a note of protest that ended her promising career as a cancer researcher. The date was Aug. 30, 1963. If she had not written that note, she might well have become one of America’s top cancer researchers today. Instead, she lives out-of-the-country in self-imposed exile.

Judyth reports that in 1963, as a mere twenty-year-old, she had been lured to New Orleans with promises of early admissions to medical school, plus the chance to work with a world-renowned cancer researcher. The price: Judyth was to use her special cancer skills to help develop a fast acting cancer that might be used to kill Cuba’s Fidel Castro.

Judyth relates in her book how she had become interested in cancer at the age of 13 after watching her grandmother die from breast cancer. She threw herself into the quest of finding a cure. While still in high school, she developed new techniques for giving cancer to laboratory animals faster than the National Cancer Institute. A Senior Vice-President for Research of the American Cancer Society in 1961, arranged for Judyth to attend a summer program held at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, New York where she was trained to handle cancer-causing viruses. For the next two years, Judyth did quiet research on the effects of radiation on deadly melanoma. Several months after the Cuban Missile Crisis, Judyth was contacted and invited to New Orleans. Her special combination of determination and cancer research skills were needed, as part of an covert effort to rid the world of Fidel Castro and his Communist revolution that threatened to spread to all of Latin America. When Judyth eventually learned that they planned on testing her cancerous creation on a healthy death-row inmate, she reacted strongly. While Judyth could rationalize killing Fidel Castro in the patriotic belief that it would prevent World War III, she felt testing a bio-weapon on an unsuspecting prisoner was unethical and amounted to murder. She wrote a note of protest to her sponsor accusing him of conducting unethical experiments. She was soon removed from the secret project. The patient died about three weeks later. Threatened, confused and frightened Judyth gave up her pursuit of a cancer cure.

Judyth Vary Baker’s complete story has been published in her book ME AND LEE: How I came to know, love, and lose Lee Harvey Oswald. The book comes out in paperback this October. As Baker explains in her book, Oswald was part of a classified team running an underground medical laboratory hidden in a New Orleans neighborhood and provided courier services for that operation. Both Oswald and Baker worked at the Reily Coffee Company in New Orleans, starting on the same day in the spring of 1963.

Publisher Kris Millegan states: “I am amazed that Judyth’s story gets absolutely no challenge from press. Forget all the Kennedy stuff and implications. The book presents a case of covert terminal human-experimentation, plus the incredible, sheer and blatant fact that millions of us boomers, as trusting children, may have been given polio vaccine contaminated with cancer-causing monkey viruses that many scientists say are a contributing factor to today’s cancer-epidemic, and the press says nothing … is astounding.”
