John Armstrong - Myra DaRouse Larue Interview Part 1 (Tape deals with Lee Harvey Owsald) [1950's]
Myra DaRouse Larue-Oswald's (Harvey) 8th grade home room teacher (and girls physical education teacher). When Oswald arrived in Myra's homeroom at Beauregard Jr. High in NO, during "basketball season," he told her that he wanted to be called "Harvey." Myra described Harvey as short, slight, and without an "ounce of fight" in him. Myra recalled the day when a piano fell onto Harvey. She took him to the Monte Lepre Clinic, on Canal Street, and then to his home on Exchange Alley. At this time, according to WC documents and WC testimony of Myrtle and Julian Evans (close friends of MO), LHO and his tall, nice-looking mother were living in one of their apartments on St. Marys Street. After the end of the 8th grade Myra never again saw Harvey. When I showed Myra a photograph of Oswald (Lee) in Life Magazine (9th grade-taken in October, 1954), she looked at the photo a long time and then said, "That's not Harvey. That's not the boy I knew from my homeroom. I don't know who this boy is."
