We're delighted to announce details of our next speaker for the Jack the Ripper East End Conference taking place this coming August:

Tom Wescott:
READING BETWEEN THE LINES

Ripperology is composed of many different but intertwining disciplines. New finds, photographs of people within the case, and outrageous theories usually receive the most attention. However, reassessing what we already have can also prove thought-provoking if not enlightening. Hard Fact is King and always will be, but what of logical inference? Sometimes a thing is notable by its absence. Sometimes a slight shift in perspective is all that’s needed to bring the past into focus.

Assistant Commissioner Robert Anderson’s views on the Goulston Street writing and what they might tell us about his credibility and the ‘ascertained facts’ of his suspect’s guilt. Chief Superintendent Major Henry Smith and how what he doesn’t say in his memoirs might offer the solution to an age-old debate about witnesses.

Israel Schwartz and why the police did not want him at the inquest, the curious circumstance of his disappearance from the inquiry mere weeks after the ‘double event’, and why we should believe that Liz Stride remained alive after ‘Broad-shouldered Man’ had fled the scene.

These and more intriguing possibilities will be the subject of Tom’s talk, to be followed by a Q & A session.

Tom Wescott is the author of THE BANK HOLIDAY MURDERS: THE TRUE STORY OF THE FIRST WHITECHAPEL MURDERS (2014) and RIPPER CONFIDENTIAL (2017). He will be appearing live from America via Skype.

Information on the talks from our other speakers will be announced soon, and we'll also be revealing our final speakers and other events!

From the Organizing Team:

We are delighted to announce details of the talk being given by Robert Smith at the August Jack the Ripper Conference being held in London's East end:

Robert Smith:
TWENTY FIVE YEARS OF THE DIARY OF JACK THE RIPPER: THE TRUE FACTS

Robert is the original publisher of the document entitled “The Diary of Jack the Ripper”, as well as being the diary’s custodian and legal owner.

He will set out what has been established about the provenance and veracity of the diary since it first emerged 25 years ago. There is now considerably more information on who wrote it - and who didn’t. He will seek to answer the key questions on the diary’s provenance, such as when and where the diary was found, and who found it.



==========================================

We have very few spaces available for this weekend conference, Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th August 2017.

If you would like to join us, please pay a deposit of £25 on this page:
http://www.ripconference.com/payments.html

If you have already paid a deposit and need to pay the remainder of your balance, due by 5th July, please visit this page:

Robert Smith is a great guy. Robert Smith knows of my commitment get to the bottom of the Maybrick Diary mystery. And my offer is still on the table, Robert, if you think any further non-invasive testing on the Diary is still warranted.

Can you, Robert, please present my Lifetime Achievement Award in Ripper studies at this illustrious gathering? Just a few words on my behalf. It would only take a few moments. Please?
