John Judge, who recently passed away, was a log-time activist and co-founder of the Coalition on Political Assassinations (COPA). “At the time of his death, John was working on creation of a Hidden History Museum and Research Center in Washington, DC, to educate a new generation about covert operations, and to support the work of investigative journalists and researchers looking into the National Security State and the rise of secrecy, government plans for extra-Constitutional jurisdiction during emergencies, and threats to civil liberties and international relations. Some of his writings can be found at judgeforyourself.org.””
A recent message from Marilyn Tenenoff reports that the Hidden history Center has now been established. Here is Marilyn’s message:
THE HIDDEN HISTORY CENTER IS BORN!
I’m excited to announce that this weekend we will begin moving the John Judge Collection to the new Hidden History Center on the upper level of 105 Rowell Court in Falls Church, VA. It is a wonderful brightly-lit space (over 1,000 square feet) in an attractive professional center called Old Brickhouse Square, located right on Route 7.
The i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed, and the lease will be officially signed on Friday.
If you can lift boxes, we could use your help at John’s house on Saturday, October 11, between 11 AM and 3 PM. We need to move about 100 boxes down one level, and to make a pathway in the basement, so egress will be easier for the movers.
There are still more boxes to pack, so we’d be glad to have your help, even if you can’t lift.
On Sunday, we have a team of movers coming to transport the first 450 boxes to our new location. I believe that represents about 2/3 of John’s collection. We probably still have another 100-150 boxes to pack.
After the collection is packed and moved, we will begin working on John’s personal belongings. Please let me know if there is anything that belonged to him that you would like to have as a memento of your friendship with him.
If you are looking for end-of-the-year tax deductions, we can still use contributions to this project. Make checks payable to Museum of Hidden History, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Send them to P.O. Box 772, Washington, DC, 20044. Or donate through PayPal on our website, http://museumofhiddenhistory.org/.
Thanks so much to all of you for helping to make John’s dream come true! The work is just beginning!
Love ~ Marilyn
