2005, Susan Orr Klopfer, Fred Klopfer, Barry Klopferp, 'Where Rebels Roost... Mississippi Civil Rights Revisited', p. 407: "Why else would the State Sovereignty Commission in March of 1964 decide to hire John D. Sullivan, a former FBI agent who once worked for Guy Banister (a former CIA and military intelligence officer), to "discredit Tougaloo College"? Or to force the firing of the school's pro-civil rights president?"
mississippisovereigntycommission.blogspot.nl/2008/12/searching-for-information-on-john-d.html: "Cold weather is great for reading books. And I've been holed up for the past week doing just that while trying to learn more about John D. Sullivan, a Vicksburg, Miss. private detective and former FBI agent, who "committed suicide" Oct. 23, 1966, three years after the assassination of JFK. Sullivan, who often performed contract work for the Mississippi Sovereignty Commission, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound following a hunting accident -- shooting himself in the groin with a rifle and then bleeding to death(no kidding). By coincidence, Mr. Sullivan had been working under contract for Guy Banister of New Orleans."
Other persons involved with Guy Banister also died rather quickly, often under mysterious circumstances: David Ferrie, Hugh F. Ward, Oswald and Maurice Brooks Gatlin are among the examples.
