he migbt would be rreely and voluntarily sade,
and that he might consult an attorney before discussing
the case. He was also advised in the event he did not
desire to discuss the case, no duress, threats or prociaee
would be made him.
At the outset of the interview BROWDER stated that
when he was called from his cell on the morning of 10,
1959, to be . by the agents, he presumed it was
his bondsman Hho had come to got him out or jail. He
he was completely astounded that his  
CMURRAY \·1ould have surrendered him on the bond,
and stated ... he was very irate t11th SINGER for the duplicity
SINGER used as a ruse to get hirn surrendered before the
Commissioner. He claimed he had no intention of jumping
bond on the case and had no prior history of'· juoping bond .
He added that he and his LOUIS SA.BETDW, h.!ld
tried without avail to find out exactly why SINGER
surrendered him.

the f8ct he had not paid the premium on this $20,000.00

On March 26, 1959, EDWARD BROWDER, JR. was
interviewed by SAs WILLIJ..N. P. HEIST and J'OEN P. LENIHAN
at the Dade County Jail, He was advised that he
need make no statement; that any statement he might make
could be used again8t him in court; any
he might make would be freely and voluntarily
and that he might consult an attorney before discussing
the case. He was also advised in the event be did not
desire to discuss the case, no duress, threats or promises
would be made him.
BROWDER stated that even though his bond had been
reduced to $7,500.00, he had been unable to make bond. Ee
stated he suspected aither the individual who surrendered him
on the $20,000.00 bond wanted to keep him in jail and for that
reason was conspiring with o·;;her bondsmen or else the FBI
was interested in keeping him in jail. He pointed out that
he had his wife and close f'riend, PAUL BERT HICKMAN, try to get
him out of jafi on bond_, and ·chey had negotiations aoae
bondsmen that appeared to be. very promising at the outset
of their diDcussions. However, after Mrs. BROWDER or
HICJCMAN would recontact the bondsman or businessman who
out some hope of getting out or jail on bor.d_, they
would get some lame excuse about \thy the bondsman or
businessman was not going to be able to put up bond ror
BROWDER. It was pointed out to BROWDER that the FBI had
absolutely no objection to BROWDER's getting out ot jail
on bond and was not in any uay harrassing or
bondsmen in order to keep BROWDER in jail. BROWDER
stated that it apparently was an on the part of the
person who had him surrendered on the bond wanted him
kept locked in jail.

in Spanish with his Latin secretary.
St-!ITH related that BROWDER came to his office alone

INTERVIEW REPORT
Date October 2"3. 1959
FRANCES real estate who lives
at 803 Northeast 83rd Street, Miami, Florida, was inter-
viewed at the FBI Office. She related 5he rents an
apartment at 801 Northeast 83rd Street to EDWARD and
LILYAN BROWDER and is attempting to evict them from the
premises. She stated the last several months, the
BROWDERs have been a minimum or two months behind in their
rent and sometimes, as much ae three or four months in
arrears. She considers the BROWDERs very undeeirable
tenants, not only because theydo not pay their rent
but also because they have such a large number or undesirable
characters either living with them or visiting them.
Miss CASHMORE related that LILYAN
BROWDER confides in her. She added that when BROviDER was
first arrested by the FBI 1n .. ec."rly March, 1959, LILYAN
BROWDER seemed to be very loyal to him, visited him often
whil'e he was in Jail before he made bondJ and appeared to
be working diligently to assist hia in getting out or jail
on bond and also defending in this case. She re-
. lated that about a month after BROWDER was first locked up,
LILYAN BROWDER seemed to have a change of he.art and Be€:!lled
somewhat embittered toward BROWDER and confided in Miss
· ClSHMORE that she planned on divorcing BROWDER. Th.e 3eneral
"Peason she gave ror thinking ot divorcing him was the phr·a.::e
.. •we're as dif.ferent as black and white." LILYAN BRot.JDER
told Miss CASHMORE that BRO'trlDER had told her a lot of
11
half
trutha.
11
She related that even when BROWDER got out of jai l
on bond about May, 1959, LILYAN appeared to be
toward and he did not appear to live at their
very often.
At one point in about MayJ 1959, LILYAN
confided in Miss that when BROWDER rirst went to
jail on this chargeJ LILYAl ted him and BRO\IDER told
her to call a man name RRARA nd she was to ask FERRARA
to get BROWDER out ot ja bond. BROWDER allegedly
LILYAN a telephone number through which BROWDER could be
contacted but instructed her only to contact him late at
night, at midnight or after. LILYAN told
Miss CASHMORE that she telephoned this number and FERRARA

swore at her and berated har for contacting him. LILYAN
BROWDER told Miss CASHMORE that she had never met this
man, FERRARA, up to that point. FERRARA gave LILYAN the
name of a Jewish attorney on Miami Beach and stated that
hereafter, any time she wanted to contact FERRARA, it
should be through this attorney on Miaui Beach.
Several photographs of FRANCESCO FERRARA were
exhibited to Miss CASHMORE. and she stated the photographs
resembled a man whom she had never aet, who periodically
vis1 ted at BRO\IDERS
1
residence. She recalled this in-
dividual was driving a white car and was attired in "wild
sports clothes.
11
Her recollection was that either the
morning BROWDER was arrested or a day or two before or a
day or two after, this individual knocked at her door and
asked for LILYAN. Her best recollection is this was
probably before BROWDER's arrest by the FBI in early
March, 1959. Miss CASHMORE advised this individual that
neither LILYAN nor BROWDER vas at their apartment and she
did not know when they aight return. This particular
caller identified himself by a rather common Anglo name
but she could not recall the nrune. aliases
used by FERRARA, including the   and others,
were mentioned to her, but she did not recognize any of them.
The name FRANCESCO MENDOZA was also mentioned to her, . but
she stated she is satisfied this individual did not identify
himself by any Latin or Italian sounding name. She pointec
out that FERRARA's photographs had been shown to her pre-
viously and ··she did not associate them with this individual;
--however, the photograph taken of FERRARA on the data of hi.s
arrest on April 16, 1959, in which he was garbed in rather
garish sports clothes was the one that she said looked a
lot like this individual who called asking LILYAN.
Miss CASHMORE related that after BROWDER was released
rrom jail about May, - 1959, she happened to see him around
the premises and struck up a casual conversation with
remarking that LILYAN BROWDER had mentioned FERRARA to
her and that the FBI was in FERRARA. She
casually inquired or BROWDER if FERRARA .had finally put
up the bond tor him to get out or jail. Miss CASHMORE
pointed out BROWDER rarely, it ever, disturbed by any
situation and when she mentioned FERRARA's name, he looked
at her with a blank expression and said he did not know
what she was talking about because he di4 not know anyone
naaed FERRARA. ·
MM 87-8756
Miss CASHMORE said in May; when BROWDER
was out on bond and awaiting trial, there was a
tall man about 35 years of age, accompanied by his wife
and infant child, around the BROWDER apartment periodi-
, ; .. cally. Miss CASHMORE said this man drove a recent· model
automobile with a Dade County, Florida rental registration
tag on it. Miss CASHMORE said this couple seemed to be
buying quite a bit or groceries for the BROWDERs and she
got the impression they were helping out the BROWDERB.
Miss CASHMORE stated that BRO\IDER and his wife's .
son, do not get along. She described the wife's son
as a juvenile delinquent about fifteen years old who has
either assumed BROWDER's last name or has been adopted
by BROWDER. She related that when BROWDER and his wife
went to Europe in January, 1959, they lett her son with
a close associate o,t .. .the1rs ngm.ed RUDY. She identified
the photograph   as the RUDY who
is very friendly with the 'BROWDERe. She recalls RUDY
bringing the boy, BUD, over once while the BROWDERs were
in Europe. RUDY asked Miss CASHitiORE to loan him s ome money
as he said the BROWDERs had not paid tor BUD's maintenance •
and he needed money for rood. Miss CASHMORE said she told-
RUDY she had no money to loan him.
Periodically thereafter, LILYAN BRO\IDER would
mention to Miss CASHMORE that RUDY PICHARDO had a very
.. and was living in
-cue a. Miss CfASHMORE! stated she
-f-or a couple of months until
..    
_!iir Miss CASHMORE stated she had previously
advised the BROWDERs she did not expect that they woul d
have other persons living at the small apartment for
extended periods of time . She recalls in the early
su.mmer, she asked BROWDER i'fhy RUDY should be staying
there on a permanent basi s . BROWDER explained to her
that RUDY was assisting him in his defense in connection
with the Canadian bond was only_ staying at
...  
BROWDER told her P:(CHARDO had a high position in J
the Cuban Government and would be returning to Cuba in a 4
short time.

MM 87-8756
BROWDERB' however , 1952::J
  and ehe_ again asked
BROW!>ER how long RUDY was going to st-ay-. BRO\IDER explained
to her that RUDY was just there for a few days while they
\'Tere additional affidavits in connection with
his trial.
Miss CASHMORE added that PAUL HICKMAN seemed to be
closely associated with the BROWDERs both before and
immediately after BROWDER was arrested by FBI Agents in
March, 1959. During the summer months of 1959, Miss CASHMORE
noted that neither HICKMAN nor HICKMAN's wife had been
around to visit the BROWDERs. Miss CASHMORE added that
periodically while BROWDER was in jail, between March and
May, 1959, LILYAN BROWDER did not sleep at the BROWDER apart-
ment and said she stayed with Mr. and Mrs. HICKMAN.
About two months ago, Miss CASHMORE asked LILYAN BROWDER .
where the HICKMANs were and LILYAN BROWDER replied, "They're
\out of town and I hope they make a lot of money as we need
lit • II
----------------
Mis s CASHMORE continued that
between 4:30 and 5 :00p.m. , a Western Union was phoned
to her residence. The message was related to her before s he
had an opportunity to tell the phoning operator that it was
not a message for her. Miss CASHMORE stated it was a cable
from Zurich, from ·PAUL HICKMAN. It made some
reference to an "order" and requested that he be phoned.
Miss CASHMORE' s recollection is that the cable was addressed
to LILYAN BROWDER. Miss CASHMORE stated she gave the We stern
(
Union BROWDER's. apartment phone number. As she recalls,
BROWDER did not return until about 2 :00 a.m. the next morning
c     _ _go:Lng-ab.ou_t tha t :_Jlou r )[[_
.... Q..f BRQliDER.!..s.-..aQartmen:C. The next morning she chastisea
BROWDER for there being so much noise in front of his apart-
ment. He stated he was the only one in front of the apartment
at that time in the morning, explaining be came home about
2:00 a.m. and then had to leave ·right away as he had to make
call. Miss CASHMORE added that she -doubt s that
BROWDER makes many significant phone calls from his apartment
phone.
a day or two after the cable
Miss CASHMORE observed that a man who appeared to be a
whom she described as a white_, 5' 5", 145 pounds

MM 87-8756
in his middle 30's, having light brown hair, and light
complexion, was ll.ving the BROWDER apartment. Once
again she advised BROWDER she d!d not expect that more
than BROWDER, his wife, and child, would be 11v1ng . in
that small apartment. BROWDER ex:Qlained
his apartment .P.!J..Rt;  
and _J?t.a.ted this atBROWDER' s apartment
days wnn-e-··t11-ey were getting affidavits
together for his trial on the Canada case, which he said
was scheduled to be heard in October, 1959. A day or so
arter she challenged BROWDER on this individual, he departed.
4
About a week later., she returned .from work one day , .._
about :30 p.m. and a tall slender man was stretched on the
chaise lounge in front of her r·esidence with his shoes orr
and with a pilot's craBh helmet on behind
1
him. stated his !
"t_Eld     as a guqr.llllillLr t· ri
explainean·r-s-presen<:fe at BRO\IDER,-3 apartment by saying !j
"Too many questions were asked about me where I lived_, so 1
I had to get out f'ast •. " This man apparently had not been \
to BROWDER's residence before because he thought the apart- 1
ment where Miss CASHMORE l ived was the one where the BROWDERs I
lived. HUGHES seemed to be friendly, stated he was
tired and worn out, and wanted to see BROWDER before he left
Miami to go to the home of his parents in Georgia. \1
the course or the conversation_, Miss CASHMORE mentioned that I)
BROWDER had arrested by the Federal government in
connection with some stolen Canadian bonds. HUGHES laughingly l
stated he knows the rY about how BROWDER got the bonds 1
because he said he li vea) II
and   sto..£l. HUGHES !'
related that-BROWDER had go.tt.e.n.,_ over worth of
stolen Canadian bonds Miss
CASHMORE that was the see ing
HUGHES around the BROWDERs
1
•. She stated she r
has noted that HUGHES' crash helmet is still in BROWDER's
apartment.
· About that same time, M1ss CASHMORE stated she
1
noted that her big ladder was against an attic

MM 87-8756
window in the building where BROWDER's apartment is located.
She had somebody check this window, which normally is sealed,
and found out that this window had been removed and was just
leaning up against the frame. She also pointed out that
there is an opening access to this attic through BROWDER's
  in the BROWDER apartment. Soon after she
.- ·.: observea this, she asked Mrs. BROWDER 1.1" ahe or her husband,
':. ·'
or any of her associates, had removed this window in order
that access could be had to their apartment through this
ladder on the nortb side of this building, and that exit
could be made from the BROWDER apartment without going
through the front door. Mrs. BROWDER denied any knowledge
of this ent17 and escape route. Miss CASHMORE is convinced
that none of the other occupants Q.f' this building would
need such an escape· route. She stated by utilizing this
route, BROWDER's friends could be living at the
without her knowledge since they would enter and on
the north aide of the building, which is generally out of
her sight. She also pointed out it would be an excellent
escape route from the BROWDER apartment.
About a month ago, a man named PAUL STERLING came
to visit the BROWDERs, but they were not home and he struck
up conversation with Miss CASHMORE. When she mentioned to
him that BROWDER had been arrested by the FBI in possession
of some stolen canadian bonds, his cryptic reply was "It
could have been me. .... ·
For the last mO'nth, LILYAN BROWDER apparently has
had a change of heart toward ED BROWDER and in her
with Miss CASHMORE no longer discusses divorcing BROWDER.
She told. Miss CASHMORE that she was incorrect in her eva1uatior1
of BROWDER's "hal:C truths
11
and added that "now he's proving
himself.
11
Miss CASH?o10RE added that the BRO\vDERs are a few.
months behind in their rent; however, during the past month
they seemed to be a little more secure financially. Miss
CASHMORE stated that on October 1, 1959, she was paid a
cashier's check by LILYAN BROWDER for one month's rent.
She recalled this cashier's check was issued by the Foreign
Department of the Little River Bank 1.n Miami. . .

Miss CASHMORE informed that within the last month
\
a _   has been parked in front of the
BROWDER apartment. Miss CASHMORE believes this is the
same 1958 peach colored rour-door Lincoln> bearing Dade
county, Florida, tags, that the BROWDERB had before
BROWDER's arrest in March> 1959, and which was repossessed
eoon after BROWDER's arrest. Miss CASHMORE added that on
either October 8 or 9, 1959> ED and LILYAN BROWDER left in
this recent model have not yet returned. She

Miss explained that BROWDER's address is
actually 801 N. E. 83rd Street; however,' a good nany
people believe that ·he lives at 803="-N. E. 83rd Street.
Miss CASIDotORE advised that for that reason many of BROWDER
1
s
friends contact her ' residence looking for BROWDER and she
presumes that is ··the reason why the' Western Union office
phoned her regarding the cable HICKMAN had sent from Switzerl?.nd ,
Miss CASHMORE added that for- approximately the last
six weeks an old model Cadillac :bearing Kansas tags has been
parked in front of the BROWDER residence and occasionally
ED and LILYAN   She stated this old

residence.
Miss CASHMORE agreed to cooperate in any way she
could in connection with this matter.

Office, explained to VICKERS that it was imperative that
HICKMAN go over to Switzerland to contact officers of the
Bank Intra to get the Petora letter of credit extended.
VICKERS was aware Petora had thie letter of credit with the
Swis2 Bank but he maintained raised a vigorous opposition
to the Petora firm paying the expenB'36 for !·ir. and 1.\irs.
BROWDER to make the trip to Eur.ope. He atated the trip
BROWDERs made to Europe has always been a big issue
him and the BRO\iDERa ever since, because he could never
justify the company paying all or any part of the
expenses to Europe. The only explanation he got f:r·om
BROWDER, BLACK, and HICKMAN wa3 that BROWDER
11
\'lanted to
meet some of the people in connection with the of
credit extension'.'. VICKERS etated he wag told that 1-1rn.
BROWDER had paid her own way but he vJae atill not convir.ce d

When HICKMAN retu!"·ned, he showed the per.:wns
interested in the company that he had gotten the letter of
credit extended and though VICKERS did not recall the

pretty sure it was Zurich. He also understood HICKMAN had
done some business with the Union Banlc in Zurich.

the whole Petora deal will f old up. He explained his only
interest in BROWDER is to have him out of jail so he can
work on the Petora gold mine operation in Province

pesos in Cuban silver certificates or tha forty million
pesos in large denomination Cuban peso notes. He claimed
he did not see any samples of· either item on the trip, and
he was certain BROWDER did not the forty million
pesos with him, since BROWDER stated if the deal was c:nsummated
he would have his· source in the United States bring
the pesos to Europe, or would have to travel to the UnitGd
States, them up ,and bring them back to Europe·. HICKMAN
stated he spoke to PAUL ZUBLER at the Union Bank in Zurich·
about the Cuban certificates, as well as Cuban pesos,
as well ·as to an 3ttorney at that bank. HICKMAN stated
,when Mr. STROHMEIER of the Swiss Banking Corporation was not
in his office in zurich, he spoke to STROHMErna's

HICKMAN stated he raferrod
BROWDER to a man named 3RZCET (Ph.) in Soyhieres, SWitzerland,

MM 87-8756
While HICKMAN was in Rome, he was in phone
with BROWDER, who was still in Zurich, and BROWDER stated he
hAd ·not been able to consummate either the weapon,ppso or
silver certificate deal while in SWitzed&nd. He told
HICKMAN he was working on some deAl involving cement.
Before BROWDER left zurich he was in contact with HICKMAN, at
which time he told HICKMAN he was telling his ·source in the
United States to contact him, BROWDER, in Rome, and was
asking that his principal in United States transfer a
credit of $400,000 . 00 to $600,000.00 to Rome, Italy, in
order the sale of the Thompson sub-machine guns could
consummated. stated at first BROWDER was considerin.g
having his principal in the United States transfer his credit
to the· SWiss in Switzerland, but for some re.;on,
BROWDER decided to have the money transferred to a bank in
Rome. BROWDER mentioned to HICKMAN in the course of his
conversation about this arms transaction that he, BROWDER,
had to pay a $5.00 commission on each sub-machine
gm to someone in Miami who to be priDcipal.
In these phone conversations, before HICKMAN left Rome,
BROWDER to sure that his principal in Miami
would send the necessary money to consummate the deal £nd
would meet the BROWDERs in Rome to inspect the arms. HICKMAN's
recollection is that BROWDER's American principal was to
arrive in Rome on or about January26, 1959, to inspect the
arms and possibly to effect the transfer of the funds, which
varied to $600,000 . 00. In subsequent phone
conversation, BROWDER told HICKMAN his source from
never did arrive in and never did effect the transfer
of the money,so that BROWDER was not able tq buy the Thompson
sub-machine8JnS from AMADAZI. BROWDER referred to the fact that
his Miami source had to go washington to see someone
before making the trip and advancing the money, and HICKMAN
recalled BROWDER mentioning he received a call from either
washington, D. C., or New York City, at which tiae the
caller stated   were interested in buying
arms, but apparentlyvhad no money to do it with.
HICKMAN stated he left Rome a day before the
BRDtnERs arrived, and he understood they moved into the

Hotel in Rome after HICKMAN had checked out of
that hotel. He again stated he went from Rome to Paris,
and· from paris to Bordeau, Fr•nce, uhere he visited his
son, who is in the Air Force at Bordeau. &e was in phona
contact with the BROWDER& after he left Rome, and he under-
stood they went from Rome to Geneva, and the purpose of
the trip to Geneva was to effect a sale of Cuban pesos.
HICKMAN suggested that contact an acquaintance of
his named PIERRE KERN in Geneva, but told him he
had never contacted While in Geneva, · the BROWDERs
-stayed at a luxurious,brand new hotel there, and BROWDER
later told RICKMAN he made at least one trip to Berm·
  from Geneva, in connection with a Cuban peso
d•al.
En route back to the United States with the
BROWDERs, HICKMAN recalled they were very depressed because
they bad not been able to conaummate a sala and had spent
quite a· bit of on the European trip. BROWDER
explained to HICKMAN he lldS leaving Jurope a little sooner
he had expected, becauDe one of his principals in
the · United StaEs wanted him to go to Cuba to try to eff3ct
the sale of tpe forty million Cubsn pesos. HICKMAN stated
he was very critical of BRO\IDER for leaving in
such a hurry without transacting any business,
he claimed BROWDER would not be able to get into Cuba to
"effect a Cuban peso deal down there. When the trio returned
from Europe they checked into the Taft Hotel, where they
were together for a few days. HICKMAN again explained
that tROWDER is very secretive about his and
would never make any phone while HICKMAN was in the
room or within earshot> and when HlOWDKR received;.;.:
calls he would be very vague in order that HICKMAN
would not know what was going
HICKMAN stated though BROWDER was in a great
burry to get back from Europe to the United States to go
to· cuba on this Cuban peso deal, after a day or tWo in
New York City at the Taft Hotel, he seemed to change his
plans completely. He no longer talked about going to Cuba,
but instead said he had to go back to Europe. HICKMAN

stated BROWDER told him he .had to return to Zurich and then go
to Rome to get the the Thompson sub-machine
guns worked out. HICKMAN stated BROWDER persuaded him
buy him a one way ticket from New York City to Zurich with .
an American Express card issued to Petora. HICKMAN stated he
bought this ticket, had the departure date left open, and
BROWD!R ·explained to him he was going to be able to raise
the money through some to get from zurich to
Rome and then back to the United States." HICI<MAN stated,
at the time,he felt BROWDER might have left something in ·
Europe or had a deal pending and was to return to
it. He stated now he is·satisfied that BROWDER
probably did not ave anything in Europe, but merely wunted'
to return and to consummata either a Thompson sub-machine
gun deal or one of the other transactions. HICKMAN recalled
that while the BROWDERs were in the Taft Hotel in New York
City after returning from Europe, they appeared to be
glued to the telephone room, in connection with some
HICKMAN recalled that they often did not go
out for meals, because they were, awaiting phone calls.
HICKMAN's personal theory is that BROWDER returned to the
United States because one of his principals in the United
States instructed him to return to try to consummate the
sale of Cuball CUba-::;::> After
returning BROWDER was in phone
contact with this person, and apparently it was decided
that deal could not be consummated. HICKMAN pointed out

calls made to and from BROWDER's Taft Hotel,New York City,
room, it was decided that BROWDER · should return to
and therefore, BROWDER persuaded HICKMAN to buy him the
ticket from New York City to zurich. .. HICKMAN stated
after the ticket was secured, another change
of plans, and BROWDER explained to HICKMAN that before
making the trip to Europe, he had to go to Miami.

HICKMAN stated he never met FRANK FERRARA, ·
did not know where BROWDER got the stolE;n Canadian bonds,
and had· actually never had heard of FRANK FERRARA. · He
did sta·te that sometime in the latter P .. art of 1958, or the
early part of 1959, he BROWDER mentioning he was
short of funds, and saying that "FRANK had· enough money.
to -tide me over." Though lil:CKMAN had never met this FRANK,
he was satisfied that FRANK was one of the principals in
the United States that BROWDER was acting for on his trip
to Europe. He is satisfied that this FRANK is the person
involved in the Canadian bonds BROWDER
as well as the weapons deal involving Th.ompson
i   to Cuban pesos. ,'#-. -·------
._
HICKMAN added that he was mystified by the fact
that BROWDER's bondsman surrendered him. He related he
does not think BROWDER had any plans to leave the Uniei • ·
States. His personal theory is that this fellow FRANK,
possibly FRANK FERRARA, contacted the New York
AL NEWMAN, to have BROWDER released from jail on H.arch 2,
1959, on $20,000.00 bond. HICKMAN described BROWDER's wife
as a very highstrung, emotional woman, who is very selfish.
He stated. when BROWDER WlS released from jail on Ms.rch 2, ··
1959, he . did hear BROWDER stating he was looking for
somebody to give him $5,000.00 right away. BROWDER
explained part of this $5,00.00 was to be used to compensate
him and his wife for the money they had spent on the
fruitless trip to Europe, part of it was to be used to
pay BROtlDER's attorney's fees, and s·ome of it was to be
used for living expenses. HICKMAN was of the opinion that
LILLIAN BROWDER was so distraught by BROWDER's arrest that
she probably made threats to expose the whole deal unless
BROWDER got a lot of financial and legal support . HICKMAN
believes the BROWDERs actually did get a caller on the
night of March 5, 1959, and it was probably occasioned by
the threats LILLIAN BROWDER had made about exposing the whole
story unless BROWDER got a lot more help from the man from
whom he got ·the bonds . HICKMAN's theory that probably
LILLIAN BROWDER would not stop her verbal threats soon
(
enough, or else the man from got the bondsjust
figured "BROWDER does not know enough·to hurt him,and he
wants to throw BROWDER to the wolves."

so far as he could determine> the BROWDERs did not
any deals in Europe. HICKMAN claimed he_, HICKMAN, secured
the letter of credit extension for PETORA.
HICKMAN stated he and the BROWDERs stayed at the
Bellerive (Ph.) Hotel in Zurich. HICKMAN stated he was
only there a fel'J days. He related during that period he tried
to contact Mr. STROMEIER_, who is the director of the Swiss·
System and the Sldss Banking Corpora·cion in Zurich.
He related STROMEIER was in the United Sntes
and for that reason he spoke to STROMEIER's assistant, whose
name does not recall, but recalls that the name had
an Italian sound. HICKMAN said he contacted STROMEIER's
assistant in connection with the letter of credit extension,
and also contacted PAUL ZUBLER of the Union Bank at Zurich
in connection with the letter of credi t extension.
HICKMAN stated he had taken care of his business
in connection wi th the letter of extension aft er a
few days in Zurich, and he left Zurich alone and went to the
Victoria Hotel Rome in connection with an arms transaction
he was .1nterested in. He cl aimed the BROWDKRs stayed in
Zurich for three or four days after he left_, because BROWDER
explained he was hoping to consummate either one of his
enterprises. HICKMAN presumed that the sale relateG either
to the Cuban silver certificates or an arms deal.
related he was in phone contact with BROWDER periodically
during those three or four days when t he BROWDERs were i r.
Zurich and he was in Rome. As far as he could determine_,
they consummated no deal in Zurich, and they came to
where they checked into the Victoria Hotel there the day
after HICKMAN left Rome.
HICKJ.1AN estimates he was at the Vi ctoria Hotel
in Rome about five days, and while in Rome was in contact
with various munitions company representatives in RomeJ trying
to con2ummate an arms deal. He was unable to close an a rms
deal and, after being in Rome about five days, went from
Rome to Paris. As he 1 t on or about January 23,
1959, when he left Paris by train to go to Bordeau, France,
where his son is stationed in the Ai r Force to
the Air Poli ce guarding a hospital there. He stated he stayed

  87-8756
on their way to the United States apparently to change
planes, drove by hotel and picked him up and
returned to the airport.
BLACK stated that to his knvwledge, no loans were
effected by HICKMAN or the BROWDERS in Europe.
BLACK ·said that in about mid-February, 1959,
he received a long distance call from HICKMAN>
who was then in Miami, and BLA.CK asked HICKMAN, "What is
BROWDER doing?" BLACK said that HIC!a·Wl replied, "BROWDER
is hiding out because of the   The guy
BROWDER got the bonds expected money for and if he
does not get it will be rubbed out."
BLACK stated that he had received permission
HICKMAN to open mail received at BLACK's office, Which
pertained to the POTORA venture. He aaid that he opened
a letter from Switzerland which addressed to BRO:.IDER
·and received at BLACK's office, waich wss frou a person
named BRECHET of Soyhieres, (cable address
BRECO.) BLACK recalled that this letter discussed a
transaction involving Cuban pegosJ but also stated som4thing
to the effect, "Sorry I wasn't able to do anything about
the bonds . ••
BLACK said that on about F4bruary 27, he received
a phone call from Mrs. BROWDER, who was in Miaoi, who
had opparently received a telephone call BRECHET.
Mrs. BROWDER wanted to know why ahe had not received the
letter address from BRECHET to Hr. ERCMDER. BLACK. explained
to her that he had obtained HICKMAN's peraiasion to open
letters concerning POTORA and had therefore opened this
letter which was addressed to BROODER.
'
Later on the same date, BLACK arranged a three-vay
telephone conversation among Mrs. BROWDER, and htm.elf
to clarify his having opened the letter. During this conver-
satiou BLACK said that HICJCMAN denied having previously told
113
MM 87-8756
BLACK that BROWDER was in hiding because of the bonds .
During this conversation, Mrs. BROWDER s cid,
1
'There
hes been too much talk about bonds, the who
owned the bonds has them back again, in fact he is
out of the country." She repeated "He is out of the
country.''
BLACK said that JESSE VICKERS read the letter
from BRECHET.
BLACK said that he received a    
from Mrs. BROWDER on March 2, 1959,
was arre$ted, at which she BLACK to put up
bond for her husband. BLACK refused do this. In thia
convera.ation, Mrs. BRWDER told !lim that the 'FB! doea
not have a case against her husb&na, that the of
the bonds could be checked and were legitimate.
BLACK said t.b.at he received a telephone csll tro:::1
PAUL HICKMAN on Sunday, Msrch 15, 1959, at which time
HICKMAN said, according to BLACI() "I clid!.i' t the
bon4s were stolen. I may have had su3picions, but you
can't act on suspicions."

Dear Mr. Browder:
You are one of the few people still alive who can link Jack Ruby
to arms smuggling to Cuba. This is ancient history man. No one is
going to come and ·blow you away. Everyone except you is dead. There
are not going to be indictments, trials, Court TV. You are not going
to live forever! Do something good in your old age. Redeem yourself
from your past. Hell is going to be lined with razors u,sed by negros to
shave their armpits. I know youve got guts or you wouldnt have
endured torture. I cant force you to talk, it has got to come from you .
But believe me, I will keep asking you to talk until the day you die.
