The elusive hot potato. We all await.

Actually it's likely much ado about nothing. Cynicism is always the best recourse. Simon -- is it about anything of significant interest?

Do I detect a hint of cynicism resulting from a distinct lack of interest in anything that is unlikely to involve Kosminski and Polish Jews, or which may be critical of Anderson? At least this is contemporary official material Scott.

I can assure you that is it very much the opposite. As Stewart pointed out the material is contemporary and will reveal new information surrounding the Whitechapel murders and Jack The Ripper.

I think some researchers who have relentlessly championed certain suspects are in for a reality check !

Hello Scott,

As one who has been keen on and have been digging into this particular part of Ripperology for a very long time, I opine that the guarded history of the material is in itself pretty fascinating, let alone the contents. All manner of reasons for such historical material, not just Ripper related, not existing have been made over many decades. The material itself may not be a crock of gold, but it may well prove to be extremely useful and may give leads to open up the subject in completely new directions. That is surely positive for all interested in the development of the subject.

best wishes

Phil

Be interesting to find some reference to good old Dr. Tumblety in there. Good luck on your efforts, Trevor!

If there isnt then i would sugggest it will be goodbye Mr Tumblety from the list of likely suspects.

I beleive it is equally important to try to prove who was "NOT" JTR than to prove who he was.
But then again there are the Tumbletyites on here who will never give him up

Hi Trevor,

Well said. None of the suspects advanced thus far bear any close examination as to their complicity in the WM. I don't know about you, but I think it is reasonable to believe that in the final analysis we won't so much discover "who" was JtR, but rather "what" was JtR.

Good hunting.

Regards,

Simon

Good luck, Trevor...when did Clutterbuck die? Very recently, it must be--I was under the impression he was working for Rand now

Not to detract from the topic of this thread, but Stewart I've never trusted much of what Anderson has written, nor have I ever believed that Aaron Kosminski was the Ripper.
