Jazz funeral to mark researcher’s death
A jazz funeral commemorating the 50th anniversary of the death of New Orleans researcher Mary Sherman will be held July 21. The event will run from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at 3101 St. Charles Ave.
Sherman was a Tulane University researcher found murdered in her Uptown apartment on July 21, 1964. The book “Dr. Mary’s Monkey” suggests that her death was linked to Lee Harvey Oswald and a conspiracy to kill President John F. Kennedy, as well as to cancer experiments on mice and monkeys in the 1960s and the AIDS epidemic.
Ed Haslam, the author of the book, will speak at 7 p.m. that evening at the Jefferson Parish Public Library, 4747 W. Napoleon Ave.
