     The file contains a silver, 17 jewel, Waltham pocket watch, 1903; a photocopy of a job application by Lee Harvey Oswald at Padgett Printing, October 4, 1963. There is a handwritten note on the back noting that Bob Stovall, apparently a former employer, does not recommend Oswald for the job because he is a troublemaker and has "communistic tendencies.” The file also contains a photocopy of an affidavit charging Oswald with the murder of police officer J. D. Tippett.
