Clay Shaw's Plaque in the French Quarter of New Orleans

Nor surprisingly, our tour guide at the time, and this was back in 2005, took a very dim view of Jim Garrison and his persecution of Clay Shaw.

New Orleans Times-Picayune, June 3, 1994.

Here is a picture from the September 30, 1976 edition of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
