A Record from Mary's Database


WC Vol. 4, pp. 320, 322; WC Vol. 17, pp. 611, 618-616; WC Vol. 18, pp. 715-718; Secret Service Document Number 167-170 indicates that Puterbaugh helped choose Trade Mart for luncheon site.


In 1960, Puterbaugh was head of Minnesoto Liquor Commission for Gov. Orville Freeman of Minn. When Freeman became Secy. of Agriculture, he gave Puterbaugh a job in the Dept. of Agriculture. Puterbaugh worked on the Billy Sol Estes case. In Sept. 1963, Puterbaugh went to Duluth, Minn., to help in advance planning for JFK's Sept. '63 visit to Duluth. Because he had done this "advance work" and because he had been to Texas, he was asked to go to Dallas for the advance work for the 11/22/63 trip. The men at the Cellar in Ft. Worth 11/21-22/63 were wearing the same Secret Service I.D. buttons with the exception of one man who was wearing a round red and white lapel I.D. button "unlike those worn by Secret Service". Since Puterbaugh had been "traveling with Secret Service" it was wondered if he might have been that one man whose sobriety was questionable (the one whose I.D. button was not like the others). In 1976, Puterbaugh was working for a Minnesota Congressman.
