TO: Mr DeLoach
FROM: M.A. Jones
                 331 ATHERTON STREET [sic]
                 METAIRIE, LOUISIANA

On the morning of October 25, 1961 [deleted] called at the Bureau and spoke with SA James R. Healy, Crime Research Section. [deleted] stated he is employed by [deleted] Company and is in Washington on business.

[deleted] stated he was concerned about [deleted] whom he fears has become deeply involved in anti-Castro activities in the New Orleans area. He stated his information comes from [deleted] and he is not sure of it's complete accuracy. He described [deleted] David William Ferrie, as a Ph.D. with a brilliant mind but who has behaved at times in a peculiar fashion and has "gone off the deep end" at times. While he feels his [deleted] activities are motivated by patriotism, he does not want to see him become involved in anything which would injure the United States...

Bufile 62-0-61428 reflects that David William Ferrie has been very active in the Cuban Revolutionary Front, New Orleans, Louisiana, has posessed firearms and other equipment in his Metairie, Louisiana, home and that he was interviewed by Bureau Agents on 8-22-61. Interview and background information developed strongly suggests that Ferrie, a former Eastern Air Lines pilot, is a "crackpot", a description used by acquaintences to describe Ferrie. A preliminary Bureau investigation under a possible Neutrality Act character failed to indicate the existence of any neutrality matter violation by Ferrie.
