1979: Parker Rossman & Antony Grey meet & correspond

Screen Shot 2015-03-03 at 10.30.11 In July 1979 Parker Rossman had returned home from a recent trip to London having met Grey while there and was full of news on his publishing successes and future plans in his evangelical fervour for preaching the benefits of paedophilia to society.

 

8 years previously George Parker Rossman had been indicted with Dr Morris Fraser for his involvement in the Long Island network of abusers uncovered in 1971.

In 1969 Parker Rossman (writing as Jonathan Drake) with Dennis Drew had published Boys for Sale: A Sociological Study of Boy Prostitution (New York,1969)

In the same year Parker Rossman published his study of boy prostitution in New York, Mervyn Harris, a South African journalist is in the UK studying boy prostitution in London, Piccadilly Circus and writes his book ‘The Dilly Boys’ – blog post on the background to this book here

During that year Dr Morris had received his Diploma in Engineering and in the summer starts treating children amongst The Troubles in Northern Ireland according to 20 September 1974: For Ulster’s Children: A World of Violence, hate [The Dispatch, Lexington, NC]

Christianity Today, America’s fundamentalist magazine recommended Parker Rossman’s book along with Robin Lloyd’s Playland [see further info from this book in blog post: Charles Napier and Sir Harold Haywood working together at Earl’s Court]

Parker Rossman hopes to meet Grey again if he returns to London and proposes a:

‘circle of correspondents who might like to exchange some serious views — perhaps even small papers — on this topic. You might let me know if you find some people who might be interested.’

He hopes the group might correspond on sex education and appreciated seeing the film strip in London.

Grey had departed from Albany Trust mid-1977 and in 1978 had accepted Nettie Pollard’s invitation to join the NCCL following his statements at a recent NCCL conference

“At this moment, we have some very involved and interesting work being done on the Child Protection Bill. What will come of that remains to be seen.”

Within a month (either before or after) of this letter PIE published Paedophilia: Some Questions and Answers which had been co-drafted by PIE and the Albany Trust under Sir Harold Haywood’s chairmanship 1975-1977.

1981: NAMBLA’s distinguished British pedigree, Martin Swithinbank, & the NY Director of Sexual Abuse Prevention

All credit goes to @snowfaked for all materials and research

In 1993 District Attorney Tom Sneddon  tried to prosecute Michael Jackson for molesting 13 year old Jordan Chandler. In the search of Neverland, several books, ‘classics’ of the pedophile world were seized as evidence.

Just under 18 months after Michael Jackson’s celebrated visit to the Houses of Parliament at the invitation of Lord Greville Janner, Neverland was raided again a decade on from the first raid. [15 June 2002 Michael Jackson visits Parliament – ITN News Source]

“Plaintiff’s request to admit seized evidence of erotic materials to demonstrate defendant’s intent, plan, scheme and motive

The People seek to introduce numerous homosexual and heterosexual picture books, videos, and magazines, seized on November 13, 2003, from the defendant’s master bedroom, suite at Neverland Valley Ranch, the video arcade and from ca room adjoining the defendant’s private office in a security building. The People also seek to admit three hard-cover books and two photographs seized from defendant’s bedroom at Neverland Ranch by the Los Angeles Police Department in August, 1993.

Book:”Boys Will Be Boys,” containing photographs of boys under the age of 14; full frontal nudity. The book is personally inscribed by Michael Jackson;”

[People of the State of California v. Michael Joe Jackson http://www.sbscpublicaccess.org/docs/ctdocs/011805pltreqaseemd.pdf January 28, 2005]

During the Sixties, ‘Boys will be Boys’ and its predecessor, “The Boy: A Photographic Essay”, were openly published, widely distributed, and very successfully sold. The editors/authors felt confident enough to proclaim that:

“Any parent, educator, social worker, anyone who enjoys boys and the fun of boys, will treasure these magnificently reproduced photographs, and will return to them again and again. For this haunting yet happy book is a permanent celebration not only of boyhood, but of the eternal springtime of the human spirit” (Georges St. Martin/Martin Swithinbank and Ronald C. Nelson/Ronald Drew).

Chillingly, inside the cover of his copy of “Boys will be Boys’ Michael Jackson had written:

“Look at the true spirit of happiness and joy in these boys’ faces. This is the spirit of boyhood, a life I never had and will always dream of. This is the life I want for my children. MJ.” [Read more: http://www.mjfacts.info/1993-items.php ]

In 1993, the same year Michael Jackson’s copies of the books were seized, the 64 year old editor of ‘The Boy’ and ‘Boys will be Boys’ Martin Swithinbank was deported to England following his release decade in prison. Within 18 months he was demanding and receiving Judicial Review of Warrington Council’s decision not to provide him with permanent council housing.

CONVICTED SEX OFFENDER IS DEPORTED TO ENGLAND
A convicted sex offender was deported to England after serving time for sodomizing young boys on Long Island, the Nassau County district attorney said Wednesday.

Martin Swithinbank, 64, formerly of Baldwin Harbor, was deported to England after completing a 7 1/2-to-15-year sentence. He was released Dec. 19, 1992, after spending more than 10 years in prison, said District Attorney Denis Dillon.

Dillon said he was notified on Wednesday by the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Services that Swithinbank was deported back to England shortly after being released from prison [Buffalo News – 25 February 1993]
MAN GIVEN LEAVE TO CHALLENGE WARRINGTON Borough Council DECISION
A 66-year-old man who was refused a permanent Warrington BC home after being deported from the United States after serving a jail term, has won the right to a full judicial review.

In London’s High Court, Justice May ruled that Martin Swithinbank‘s complaints against the council were ‘arguable’.

Mr Swithinbank, currently in temporary accommodation in Warrington, challenges the council’s decision that he is ‘intentionally homeless’.
The court heard that Mr Swithinbank lived in the United States between 1951 and 1992 when he was deported after serving a prison sentence imposed in 1984.
On his return to Britain he lived with a friend in Warrington, but he claims he had no option but to later leave that address. He applied to the council for a permanent home, but was turned down in February this year.

The council accepted that Mr Swithinbank was homeless and in ‘priority need’ of housing in view of his age. But it was the council’s view that his last ‘settled’ address had been the home in New York City where he lived before he was jailed.

The reason he became homelessness was the criminal offence he committed in America, the council claimed.
Mr Swithinbank was ruled ‘intentionally homeless’ and, although the council has housed him temporarily, they deny any obligation to give him a permanent home.

After a brief hearing today, Mr Justice May opened the way for him to challenge that decision by Judicial Review.
Unless matters are resolved in the meantime, his case will return to the High Court for a full hearing. [Local Government Council – 7 July 1994]

On closer examination, the 40+ year history of Swithinbank’s life in America, from when he settled there as a 1951 Fulbright Scholar at Harvard’s School of Business Administration to his deportation, provides clues as to why US paedophile luminary Yale’s Rev. George Parker Rossman [see here for his correspondence with the Albany Trust’s Antony Grey in 1979] escaped justice and also as to the depth of transatlantic child abuse network links. Events in the US (such as raids, evidence seized, trials and convictions…or inexplicable decisions to take no further action or deals cut for immunity from prosecution for informants) take on new significance. The difference in bail between Swithinbank and his fellow NAMBLA trustee Jerry Fox (still employed as the Director of the Sexual Abuse Prevention Program NY even after his conviction for child abuse in 1982) is another disparity which deserves further research.

Starting out as professional independent photographer whose works appeared in Encyclopedia Britannica and Life magazine as well as many other Madison Avenue publications, Swithinbank soon graduated to being a major distributor of boy sex abuse images in 1970, who was also connected to the 1973 Long Island Fraser/Rossman international boy sex ring [not forgetting that Rossman is credited for writing a children’s Bill of Rights which are so often propagandized by groups like PIE and NAMBLA], as well as being a major shaper of the North American Boy Love Association from its inception with a curious connection to the most famous child abduction in US history – Etan Patz abducted in 1979.

D. W. Nichols, according to his 1977 interview in the Midwest Gay Academic Journal by Daniel Tsang [Published through the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI Gay Academic Union – the same school where Martin’s cousin glacierologist Charles Swithinbank did his research], was with Book Explorers, Inc. from 1967 through 1970. Book Explorers, later evolving into Book Adventures, Inc. published Martin Swithinbank‘s 1964 “The Boy: A Photographic Essay” and 1966 “Boys Will Be Boys!” with Swithinbank using the alias “Georges St. Martin” and co-author Ronald Drew, a New York public schoolteacher, using the alias “Ronald C. Nelson.” Drew was later fired for molesting a student but was able to retain his pension through legal action. Book Explorers also publish a quarterly magazine called Boyhood, as well as pederast calendars and literature.

Dennison William Nichols from Mason, Michigan was the Sociology professor at Western Michigan University from the Sixties into the 1980s. Western Mich is located in Kalamazoo [100 miles directly west of Ann Arbor]. In 1962, Nichols was wrote an article for the Mattachine Review, “The Existential Approach to the Causation and Maintenance of Male Homosexuality.” The Mattachine Society was an early homosexual advocacy group created by famed American gay-rights activist Harry Hay. Another Harry Hay disciple was Guy Strait, infamous child sex abuse pornographer. The Mattachine Society was connected to the Communist Party in the fifties.

The ending of Nichols association with Book Explorers in 1970 is significant, because on June 10, 1970 the Associated Press reported that a “$1 million worth of pornographic material” was raided in a Cape Cod film shop located in Barnstable, Massachusetts. Hundreds of thousands of colored slides, photogrpahs and brochures were confiscated in the raid. The outfit went under the name “Aquarius Press.” Three men were arrested in the bust: Norval Shutz, 51; Dennison W. Nichols, 34; and Martin W. Swithinbank, 42. A filing cabinet containing thousands of names and addresses from around the world were discovered. Whether the three were jailed from these arrest is not yet known.

Another significant detail from the 1977 Nichols interview is his discussion of George Parker Rossman, ordained minister and former dean of Ecumenical College at Yale University. Rossman was arrested in 1973 with Dr. Morris Fraser, Belfast child psychologist, and other in a Long Island, NY, boy sex ring. Nichols said that Rossman received a pederast mailing list from Nichol’s [and Swithinbank‘s] Book Explorers company. We can assume this is the same list discovered in Nichol’s and Swithinbank‘s Aquarius Press operation which was raided in 1970, the same year Nichols left Book Explorers. Nichols said that Rossman published his book on boy sex trafficking “Boys for Sale” through Book Explorers using the alias Jonathan Drake. Nichols, Swithinbank and Rossman were all obviously very good friends.

Rossman’s arrest in Long Island, NY in 1973 is also of some factual importance. A January 30, 1983 Milwaukee Journal article by Dennis Bell and Richard C. Firstman titled “Boy beware” wrote of the arrest of 17-year-old Harold Baker for the November 29, 1982 kidnapping of a New Jersey boy. Baker was said to have been involved with Swithinbank since he was 8-years-old, which means since 1973. Martin W. Swithinbank, NAMBLA trustee/steering committee member, was arrested for sodomy and sexual assault on July 11, 1981, along with eventually eight others, at his Baldwin Harbor cottage home located on Long Island, NY. Not only were Swithinbank and Rossman business associates, they also were arrested in the same vicinity. Was Swithinbank part of the 1973 boy sex ring in Long Island, but remained undetected?

Another point of relevance is the disappearance of Etan Patz in New York City, May 25, 1979. Etan became instantly recognizable throughout the United States as the first missing child whose face was printed on a milk carton. During the kidnapping of a New Jersey boy, Charles Dyson, by Harold Baker in December 1982 [Dyson was put on a bus from Vermont by 22-year-old NAMBLA “chickenhawk” Hugh Hammill and returned to NYC onDecember 30th], suspicions were raised about NAMBLA being involved in the Etan Patz disappearance. NAMBLA’s Wareham, Massachusetts cottage headquarters was raided by the FBI on December 3 in relation to the Patz case. Authorities said there was evidence of Dyson being at the cottage two days before the raid.

A few days before Dyson’s return and the arrests of Baker and Hammill, press reports circulated of a possible photograph of Etan Patz being found in the Wareham cottage raid. NAMBLA held a news conference on December 28 stating that the photograph could not possibly be of Etan since it came from a January 1968 Boyhood calendar published from Book Explorers, Inc. NAMBLA released two photocopies. One of the cover of “Boyhood Calendar, 1968,” and one of the January calendar leaf including the photo of the boy resembling Etan. NAMBLA spokesman David Thorstad identified the model but did not know of his whereabouts. He said the association had no connection with the calendar, and he would not release the name of the calendar’s owner, who did “not wish to be harassed.” The owner and creator of the calendar was professional photographer Martin Winthrop Swithinbank! NAMBLA must have known their recently convicted trustee made the calendar. Given that many NAMBLA pederasts were very experienced with photographic processing, was the picture of the boy who looked like Etan Patz superimposed onto an old Swithinbank calendar and photocopied to the press?

As of this writing, the man on trial for Etan Patz’ disappearance is 69-year-old Jose Antonio Ramos. Ramos was jailed March 27, 1987 in Pennsylvania for sexually assaulting two boys. He served his full 27-year sentence and was subsequently charged with the disappearance of Etan.

Is it possible a “chickenhawk” for NAMBLA abducted Etan Patz into their child abuse ring? A photocopy of Martin Swithinbank‘s 1968 Boyhood calendar for Book Explorers does not clear away suspicion of their involvement.

2 Men Held in Long Island On Sex Charges [New York Times, 14 July 1981]

MINEOLA, L.I.— A rented house in Baldwin Harbor was used as a haven where young boys were taken and sexually abused, officials said. Two men were arrested there Saturday night and detectives seized a large number of videotapes made there that showed men engaged in sexual acts with boys 8 to 15 years old.

Arrested at the house was the tenant, Martin Swithinbank, 53, and Jerry Fox, 32, of Kingston, Pa. Mr. Swithinbank was charged with sodomy, and Mr. Fox was accused of sexual abuse.

Three Arrested In Raid On Cape Cod Film Shop
BARNSTABLE, Mass. (UPI)– State and local police seized more than $1 million worth of pornographic material, mostly colored slides of young boys; in a raid on a cottage Tuesday.
Three men were arrested, two at the cottage and the other later in the day in nearby Bourne. Hundreds of thousands of colored slides, photographs and brochures were confiscated.
Capt. Charles Harrington of the state police said most of the slides showed young boys between the ages of 7 and 14 in various poses.
Headquarters of the Aquarius Press, the cottage on Old Stage Road was the scene of a $100,000 mail order business, according to officials. The building housed a complete photo lab.
Police said the raid was made following a tip from a local bank that it was receiving large checks from all over the world. Officials said a mailing list with world-wide customers was found for the slides, which sold at $140 for a set of 48.
Arrested and charged with possession of obscene literature with intent to sell were Martin Swithinbank, 42, of Barnstable, Dennison W. Nichols, 34, of Osterville and Norval Shutz, 51, of Buzzards Bay.
Nichols and Schutz were released on $1,000 bond and had their cases continued to June 17. Swinthinbank, arrested later in the day, was to be arraigned today.

1974: Swithinbank edits ‘Sexual Adventures in Marriage’

About 11 or 12 years ago, while digging through a forgotten part of the Chelsea flea market, I found a copy of the classic Fornicating Female Freaks on Audio Stag Records. That was cool, but stuffed inside the jacket was a second record: this little gem.
A soundtrack to a “film documentary” of the same name, Sexual Adventures in Marriage is a terrific mess largely due to the narrator, who is aloof, maybe tipsy, and most definitely rushed. He coughs repeatedly, clears his throat, flubs his lines, and loudly turns his pages. A phone rings next to him at one point, and you can also hear what sounds like a big truck driving by outside. As the narration goes on, I could swear that a couple of the pregnant pauses are due to the narrator actually stifling a yawn. And that’s not even getting into the content of Sexual Adventures in Marriage. Most of it is only moderately spicy, but things definitely heat up by Reel 3, which contains such progressive maxims as “Never tolerate muscular softness in your wife” and “Give her a good slap where she’s built for slapping.”
Pent-R-Books was a cheapo, X-rated publishing outfit based at 120 13th St in Brooklyn, in business from the late-60s (maybe before) through the late-70s. From what I can tell, they published mainly adult fare disguised as how-to books. They published a book version of Sexual Adventures in Marriage (written by one Rudiger Boschmann), as well as other titles such as The Full Color Guide To Sexual Pleasures A-Z, The Picture Book of Sexual Love, and Love’s Photo Album.
The story got more interesting when I discovered that Pent-R-Books was, in a way, some kind of free speech pioneer. In New York in 1971, Pent-R-Books challenged what was known as the Goldwater Amendment, a law that had passed requiring notices on any sexual oriented mail. At the same time, the Post Office had made available a blanket protection form for anyone who did not wish to receive such material. According to articles in the New York Times, the law stated that publishers had to purchase the lists (which were updated weekly by the Post Office) to make sure they were not breaking the law when sending out their explicit material. The law itself carried stiff fines and jail sentences. Pent-R-Books apparently had a mailing list of over 8 million potential customers they regularly sent sexually oriented ads to, and demanded a restraining order on the law. They claimed that the law was a violation of free speech, and would irreparably damage their business. The State’s Attorney disagreed, and a 3-judge panel was ordered.
Problem is, that’s where the news dries up on my end. By late 1971, 500,000 people had signed the Post Office forms, and Pent-R and four other publishers had been dutifully purchasing them at great expense, while still pursuing the matter in the courts. Missing from the newspapers was a 1974 case, United States vs. Pent-R-Books, which appears in a finding aid for the John Francis Dooling papers at the Harvard Law Library. In 1976, Pent-R-Books was still kicking around, as that’s the date of this recording. However, by 1979, the company was bankrupt and an attempt was made to purchase (for ten grand) the rights to their holdings by one Jay M. Halpert.

By 1977 Nichols knows at least 500 fellow pederasts, a large number of them being the same friends and acquaintances as George Parker Rossman. “We know many of the same people because he used our mailing list to contact these individuals.”

Like Peter Righton in the UK Jerry Fox worked in the education and training of Social Work Students except his particular interest was in developing courses in racism etc. at the University of Pennsylvania during 1979. Fox, at one time, was employed as a teaching assistant at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and at West Chester State College in West Chester, Pa. He was also active in youth movements in New York City. Fox had visited Geller while he worked at Youth Camps.

In March 1982, incredible but true was the fact that Fox was the Director of the Sexual Abuse Prevention Programs, Parents Against Child Exploitation (PACE), New York City and presenting on ‘Affective Learning in Racism Courses…’ to the Council on Social Work Education Annual Program Meeting in New York City. Like Swithinbank, Fox was reported as a trustee/steering committee member of NAMBLA. Unlike Swithinbank who was required to place £100k for bail, Fox was released on $5k bail.

In 1986 Martin Swithinbank was named as a founding member of NAMBLA in an article reporting the capture and conviction of fellow abuser Stewart Geller, a Boy Scout leader who had fled charges when Swithinbank’s home in Baldwin Harbor was raided in 1985

Geller, one of eight defendants charged with sexually assaulting boys at a home in Baldwin Harbor, N.Y., was extradited to New York last year, said Elaine Stack, district attorney in Nassau County.

The owner of the home was a founding member of the North American Man-Boy Love Association, an organization working for legalization of sex between men and underage boys, Stack said. NAMBLA literature was found in the home, she said.

Man Pleads Guilty In Sexual Abuse Of Cub Scouts
April 23, 1986

A former West Palm Beach man pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges of attempted capital sexual battery and lewd assault in connection with the sexual abuse of four Cub Scouts, then aged 8 to 10, in 1983.

Stewart Geller, 39, originally was charged with sexual battery on a child under 11 — a crime punishable by death in Florida — and lewd assault.

Under a negotiated plea, he was allowed to plead guilty to the lesser sexual battery charge. Circuit Judge Tom Johnson sentenced him to 20 years in prison.

The parents of all four boys, two of whom are brothers, were in court Tuesday. Assistant State Attorney Polly McFadden said their support for vigorous prosecution of Geller`s case helped obtain his agreement to a stiff sentence.

“I believe the reason we were able to get 20 . . . was their responsibility,“ McFadden said.

Geller came to West Palm Beach in 1983 after sex-related charges were filed against him in New York, McFadden said. He worked and lived in a West Palm Beach crafts gallery, she said.

Within months, Geller had become leader of a Cub Scout pack of which all four boys were members, McFadden said. He befriended the boys and won their parents` confidence.

Several times the boys spent the night at Geller`s home, McFadden said.

“He was their trusted friend,“ she said. “(The parents) allowed the children to spend the night with him because he was so trustworthy.“

“He came across as a very nice man who loved children,“ the mother of one boy said. “I figured he (her son) was perfectly safe. It was a place where he could get leadership.“

Geller assaulted the boys during these overnight visits, McFadden said. When one boy reported the assaults to his mother, she notified police.

Geller fled the country before charges could be filed against him, McFadden said. He eventually was traced to Holland.

Geller, one of eight defendants charged with sexually assaulting boys at a home in Baldwin Harbor, N.Y., was extradited to New York last year, said Elaine Stack, district attorney in Nassau County.

The owner of the home was a founding member of the North American Man-Boy Love Association, an organization working for legalization of sex between men and underage boys, Stack said. NAMBLA literature was found in the home, she said.

Geller originally was charged in New York with two counts of sodomy and two counts of sexual abuse, Stack said. He pleaded guilty to one count of each offense and was sentenced to 1 to 3 years in prison.

The other defendants either pleaded guilty to their charges or were found guilty by a jury, Stack said.

Geller was released to face the Palm Beach County charges because potential penalties are greater in Florida, Stack said.

“We were more than happy to handle it that way,“ she said.

Stack applauded the sentence given to Geller.

“You guys are tough down there,“ she said.

Dr Morris Fraser, Belfast, Long Island New York, Islington

 

For the past 18 months, Spotlight on Abuse has collated various newspaper reports on the career of Dr Morris Fraser, a child psychiatrist who began studying children in Northern Ireland under pressure of the troubles from August 1969, eventually publishing a book Children of Conflict in 1974.

Spotlight on Abuse: Dr Morris Fraser, PIE, Islington, New York and beyond

Dr Morris Fraser aka Roderick Fraser was a member of the Paedophile information Exchange (PIE), and was involved in child abuse networks across the UK and overseas. He was a founder of the Azimuth Trust charity which sent young boys on sailing holidays as a front for a paedophile ring. He was also one of eight men charged in New York as part of an organised abuse network.

Fraser worked as a child psychiatrist in Belfast at a time when a paedophile ring was abusing children in care at Kincora Boys’ Home and other Northern Ireland children’s homes. Although he was never officially implicated in abuse at Kincora, there seems to have been organised child sexual abuse ocurring wherever he lived or worked. The General Medical Council knew of Fraser abusing children in the early 1970s following ‘an incident’ with a young boy, but allowed him to carry on practicing as long as he switched to working with old people.

Fraser lived in Islington in 1990, at a time when paedophile networks had infiltrated Islington children’s homes. Although this may just be coincidence as he was working at University College Hospital, it’s hard to imagine that there weren’t other motives for his move to London. As the second article below shows, he had also travelled to Turkey, Holland and Denmark to abuse children.

Another PIE member, Peter Righton, is connected to Islington via the Islington-Suffolk Project, which sent children in care on holidays to Lord Henniker’s estate in Eye, Suffolk. Righton and his partner were invited to live on Lord Henniker’s estate after Righton’s 1992 conviction for importing images of child abuse. Righton also sat on a steering committee which advised on training for staff working with disturbed children, alongside John Rea Price, Islington’s Director of Social Services.

Below is a timeline pulling together sources and information linked to and provided by @snowfaked [Troy] @murunbuch [SpotlightonAbuse.wordpress.com] @Ian_Pace [Desiring Progress Blog] and Daniel De Simone (with huge thanks to all) showing the number of times Dr Fraser was convicted, the four hospitals he is known to have worked at during his career, a PhD in electro-shock therapy on the elderly, and the various  books he published or contributed to. Oh – and a 1969 Diploma in Engineering.

As I mention at the end of this post: Savile, Dublin & Belfast: Time to re-evaluate his role in The Troubles? it will always come back to the Azimuths.

Brehm is on the student body at Columbia College. He graduates this year from Columbia University aged 25/26. Professor Boris Stanfield’s area of expertise was Russian economics.

“Boris thought he knew a few things about revolution; he was a man who had broken bread with Lenin, Trotsy, and Stalin, but now he was confronting the jock revolution, and it had the chimerical form of two beautiful 26-year old blondes joking around with a U.S. senator” [New York Magazine, 17 December 1973]

Brehm’s Nassau County Ring: In 1972 George Brehm would be convicted for his involvement with a Nassau ring of child abusers. The New York Times later wants to make it especially clear Dr Fraser and Mr Oelke (the ex-fundraiser for the Big Brother organisation in New York) were not involved in the Nassau ring trial of 1972 that Brehm had already been convicted for and it appears was attending court from prison during the trial for the Long Island ring in 1973.

Ian Pace’s blog : Paul Foot on Kincora – Appendix with Colin Wallace documents, and mention of Morris Fraser

Tom Griffin’s article for Spinwatch :

“… a briefing provided by Army intelligence to the Information Policy unit at HQ Northern Ireland in 1973. It described a shadowy loyalist paramilitary group known as Tara and its leader:

The OC is William MCGRATH. He is a known homosexual who has conned many people into membership by threatening them with revealing homosexual activities which he himself initiated. He is a prominent figure in Unionist Party politics and in the Orange Order.

McGrath uses a non-existent evangelical mission as a front for his homosexual activities and also runs a home for children on the (236) Upper Newtonards Road, Belfast (Tel: B’fast 657838).

On the 8 November 1974, Colin Wallace wrote a memo highlighting the abuse of inmates at this hostel, the Kincora Boys’ Home. His conclusion, cited in Paul Foot’s book, was that the Army should seek to have matter investigated by the RUC and by responsible journalists, something that ultimately did not happen for another six years.

The earlier 1973 memo on Tara made no direct mention of child abuse, but it did include one largely un-noticed detail that may link Kincora to parallel scandals in Britain.

A handwritten annotation at the bottom of the document reads:

‘Ulster’s children of conflict’, New Society 15 April 1971. Dr M. Fraser? RVH “

“One of the first systematic studies of Belfast was conducted by Dr Morris Fraser, a child psychiatrist affiliated with the Royal Victoria Hospital there. Dr Fraser correlated the 1969 riots with the effects on mental health and found that there had been significant detrimental effects on both adults and children.” [Northern Ireland: Society Under Seige, Rona M. Fields, 1980 see below]

In 2007, this study was still being referred to authoritatively in the Counselling  Psychology Review, Vol. 22, No. 3, 2007, without considering whether Dr Fraser’s access to those children studied means there is a possibility that their anxiety or stress could be situational in other ways.

23 May 1972: 3 charged as sex deviate recruiters [Tri-City Herald / LA Times] – George Brehm and Angelo Riviezzo are both charged with being involved in the Nassau ring.

“They were among six persons indicted by a Nassau grand jury. Nassau Dist. Atty. William Cahn said the men were “involved in a national recruitment program of young boys for the purposes of deviate sexual conduct.”
Cahn said that the men -about 15 of them — had bribed the boys to participate in “acts of sexual deviation.” Cahn said, “These men bribed the youngsters with very, very expensive gifts, clothing, bribed the families (of the boys) and inferred that they were members of the Big Brother movement since most of the boys were fatherless.”
Big Brothers is a nationwide program designed to provide mature male companionship for fatherless young boys between the ages of 8 and 16 years. The organization, Cahn said, was not involved.
Cahn said a three-month investigation by his office’s vice squad has revealed that about 15 adult males were involved with about 30 boys. He said that the men knew each other but were not led by any one individual.
“The boys come from all over the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico,” Cahn said. “They were brought to Nassau County and elsewhere for the purposes of ‘schooling’ them in sexual deviate conduct and to get them to recruit other boys for the same purposes.”
Cahn said that the ring was involved in activities in New York, Toronto , Pittsburgh, Acapulco and Los Angeles, and had been operation for about 10 years. Cahn said that a fourth member of the ring was arrested and indicted in Pittsburgh. Cahn said that the boys involved ranged in age from 8 to 17.
Under the guise of working for the Big Brother program, the men were able to entice the youngsters to accompany them on trips to San Juan, Los Angeles, Toronto, Pittsburgh, Nassau and Suffolk, he said. The adult homosexuals would then “swap” them for local boys by members who maintained the ring in the various cities, Cahn said.
Cahn added, “very few of these boys, if any, had any propensity for this kind of conduct before they met up with these men. In fact, in most instances, the boys objected and had to be bribed . . . before they consented to participate.”
Arrested in Nassau were George W. Brehm, 49, of Floral Park, a salesman of school equipment, charged with 41 counts on a variety of morals charges; Russell Hoffman, 44, of Uniondale, an associate professor of English at Adelphi University, charged with one count of sexual abuse; and Angelo F. Riviezzo, 42, of Brooklyn, charged with third-degree sodomy.
Brehm, married, and the father of three children was arraigned before Nassau County Court Judge Paul Kelly and was released in lieu of $10,000 bond. Hoffman, married, and the father of three, was released in lieu of $900 bail, and Riviezzo, who is single and works as a chemist for a New Jersey firm, was released on $1,000 bond.”

4 May 1973: Child-psychiatrist, 7 others charged in sex abuse of 15 boys (Arizona Republic)

British child-psychiatrist Morris Fraser, 39, and seven other men were indicted here yesterday on 27 counts of conspiracy, sodomy and sexual abuse involving 15 boys.

Fraser, who appeared on the widely acclaimed NBC television documentary, Suffer the Little Children, concerning the effects of war on the children of Northern Ireland, pleaded innocent to the charges in arraignment before Suffolk County Judge Pierre Lundberg.

Three other men also pleaded innocent, a fifth was in custody in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and the remaining three men are at large, police said.

The Suffolk County grand jury indictment charged the men with befriending the alleged victims, some under 11 years of age, then committing sex acts with them at a home in West Islip, N.Y., between January 1970 and December 1971.

The indictment specified one count of conspiracy, 19 counts of sodomy and 7 counts of sexual abuse against each defendant.

Authorities said one of those indicted, Hal Oelke, 48, of Manhattan, was a former fund raiser for Big Brothers of New York, but left the post several years ago. The organization works with troubled youths.

Another defendant, George Brehm, 50, of Floral Park, N.Y., was accused of making a house available for the alleged sex activities — a summer home since resold.

Both Brehm and Oelke pleaded innocent to the charges as did a fourth defendant, George Rossman, 53, married and a father of three from New Haven, Conn.

Brehm currently is being held in Auburn State Prison after conviction on similar charges last year.

Sam Fierro, chief of the Suffolk County rackets bureau, said Fraser returned here “willingly and at his own expense” from the British Isles, where he is associated with the Royal Belfast hospital for Exceptional Children in Belfast.

He was released on his own recognizance after the arraignment to return to Belfast, pending trial at a date not yet set.

Oelke and Rossman were released on $2,000 bail each”

On 6th May in an article ‘Psychiatrist denies sex abuse charges’ (see right) Dr Fraser states to the New York Times “my innocence is beyond question.”

The 31 year old doctor, who said he had been suspended following the indictment from his $8,000 a year post as senior registrar in psychiatry at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children, said: “I emphatically deny that I did anything other than act completely properly.

He said he had known two of the defendants and had seen one indulging in “minor acts” with two boys but had not reported it for professional reasons. He said that he had received assurances that treatment would be obtained for the man who had committed the acts.

“It looks very bad on the face of it,” Dr Fraser said, “But I only wanted to help these people, and I feel that all I did was my duty as a doctor to that one man.”

Child psychiatrist Roderick Morris Fraser pleads guilty on Feb 28 to attempted sodomy with 3 boys (S).

He pleaded guilty to several charges in 1974, after having denied them in 1973 (during which time he was suspended from his post) though it is not clear what came of this. But he was able to continue practising. From around 1974 he was involved with PIE and wrote for them and other paedophile groups.

 

After pleading guilty in New York, within a fortnight Dr Fraser was back home to appear before the General Medical Council for a second time.

1976 – Publishes Death of Narcissus Screen Shot 2014-09-14 at 00.13.32 Screen Shot 2014-09-13 at 23.59.24

From Ian Pace’s blog: In 1976, Fraser published The Death of Narcissus – a key text in a ‘paedophile canon’. It is an immensely pro-paedophile reading of classic literature – Carroll, Barrie, Henry James, and various others – which was regularly cited in paedophile magazines and other articles, and influenced a wide range of other articles and books. To this day, The Death of Narcissus , with its distorted cod-Freudianism, is cited approvingly in the introduction to the Penguin Modern Classics’ edition of James’s The Turn of the Screw.

Parker Rossman, Sexual Experience between Men and Boys: Exploring the Pederast Underground (New York: Association Press, 1976).

‘It may be that nature intended older males to tutor adolescent boys in sex, and unconscious or  repressed pederast or homosexual tendencies are intended to stimulate an interest in such tutoring’ (p. 17).

The book was also reviewed by Ken Plummer in Gay News.

An important new blog article was posted by Tom Griffin on Tuesday (Tom Griffin, ‘From Kincora to PIE: Why the abuse inquiry needs access to intelligence documents’, August 5th, 2014), relating to recent reports concerning abuse at the Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast, about which I earlier blogged here. In particular, Griffin’s article noted a mention in Paul Foot’s book Who Framed Colin Wallace? (London: Macmillan, 1989) of an article by Dr Morris Fraser (also known as Roderick Fraser), a child psychologist at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast, who was also connected to the Paedophile Information Exchange and later to the Azimuth Trust, who was convicted of multiple offences against children in several countries (beginning in the early 1970s) and also had connections with the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) and various European paedophile groups. He nonetheless often appeared or was cited on the subject of the plight of children during the troubles in Northern Ireland, and was the author of and Children in Conflict (London: Secker & Warburg, 1973) and The Death of Narcissus (London: Secker & Warburg, 1976), the latter a sympathetic Freudian analysis of paedophile desire as represented in literature, which continues to be cited, for example, in the introduction by Anthony Curtis to the Penguin Modern Classics edition of Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw and The Aspern Papers (London: Penguin Books, 1986) (see here for a sample). I will blog in more detail on Fraser at a later date; for now, I would recommend people read the Spotlight links given above, and in particular watch the following film about the Azimuth Trust.

Fraser’s ‘The Child’ p.51 – Case study of ‘John’ the Diplomats’ son

2 August 1981  – ‘Ulster’s Lost Generation’ (New York Times) – Excerpt below re Morris Fraser:

“Psychologists say that a chief reason for emotional disturbance in children is a sense of not belonging, of not fitting into their community. The children who have grown up throwing stones in riots, facing the common foe in the shape of a soldier or a policeman, belong. They may have given up regular church attendance, a major break with tradition in this very religious land, limiting themselves to attending funerals. They may have made aggression, in the words of the psychiatrist Morris Fraser, their ”major means of dealing with all problems.” But in the opinion of some authorities, they have found a way to deal with their world that produces a minimum of mental illness – considerably less, for example, than in many of the ghettos of the United States.

Those parents whose children have not yet become hoods devise their own strategies. ”Yes, I am keeping him at home,” one mother told a school psychologist who was investigating her son’s truancy. ”I know where he is when he is at home. He is not with the I.R.A., he is not hijacking cars, he is not playing in derelict buildings. He is watching television, and I have a fire, and he is warm.”

The daughter of the house is not really part of the drama. The sexes keep to their traditional roles in Northern Ireland: Women have the entire responsibility of raising a family. No man ever does the laundry, makes the dinner or goes to the grocery. Men drink, gamble, steal, go off to jail, or get involved in paramilitary groups. The wives are left behind to cope.

What the visitor to Northern Ireland finds most amazing is that very capacity to cope. Tony Spencer, a member of the Belfast school board and professor of sociology at Queen’s University, puts it this way:

”Everyone has adapted very well. There are certain areas people will not go into, certain things they will not do, but that is no different from the United States. The paramilitaries have adapted. The security forces have adapted -the death rate is far higher in Germany on the autobahn, and the training the troops get here is excellent. The fire service has adapted: We have people from all over the world coming to look at it to see how it works. Medicine has adapted: We have doctors coming from all over to study the way we deal with high-velocity gunshot wounds. Public administration has been strained, but it has adapted, and you haven’t seen anything approaching the breakdown you saw in Italy during the earthquake, for example. The political system goes on, after a fashion. Unemployment is bad, but lower than in Latin American states. The milk keeps arriving in the morning. The bread is in the shops everyday. We can go on like this indefinitely, for generations.”

In 1989 the Sunday Mirror (23 July 1989) reported that former BBC Northern Ireland correspondent Clifford Luton was also linked to the Azimuth Trust and investigated, but no charges were brought.

Yet in August 1993, he was able to find work again at the Royal South Hampshire Hospital. He was arrested again in March 1994 and then fled to Amsterdam. Fraser was also linked to Andrew Sadler, a prep school teacher, who was jailed for abusing children in Romania.


1994

“The Sunday Express reports that a convicted paedophile tricked his way into a top job at a hospital despite a string of crimes against children. The scandal came to light when the trust that runs the hospital was tipped off about Dr Roderick Fraser’s 20-year history of child sex abuse. He was working as a consultant psychiatrist at the Royal South Hampshire Hospital in Southampton only a year after release from prison for peddling paedophile material.”

March/April 1994: Arrested by Hampshire police, now in Amsterdam

Psychiatrist was abuser

The Times
30 May 1994
An NHS Trust hospital that employed a convicted child sex abuser as a consultant psychiatrist is to review its employment procedures. The Royal South Hampshire Hospital in Southampton found out about Roderick Fraser’s 20-year involvement in child sex abuse and pornography only when told by police. He joined the hospital as a locum last August. His contract was ended immediately after the police tip-off. Fraser was arrested two months ago by Hampshire police investigating child pornography allegations and is now believed to be in Amsterdam.

1995

14 July 1995: Tougher measures to root out child abusers [The Glasgow Herald, Sarah Nelson] on the Sexual Offences (Amendment) Bill on sex tourism

TODAY a little-publicised Bill — successfully piloted through the Upper House by Lord Hylton — is due for its crucial second reading in the Commons. The Sexual Offences (Amendment) Bill would enable UK courts to try UK citizens for crimes committed against children abroad.

This Bill would not only help protect many desperately vulnerable children in poor countries, such as Thailand, from exploitation by child abusers, heterosexual and homosexual, who regularly go to the Third World for foreign holidays or “volunteer” work. It would help British police forces build up dossiers against abusers also likely to be active in the UK.

A recent Christian Aid report on tourism and child prostitution in the Third World found a high proportion of ”sex tourists” were British, and that in the Philippines and Sri Lanka were one of the main groups of men deported for sexual abuse against children.

Such men “have also turned to computer networks to spread information about sex tourism and child prostitutes. The ‘information superhighway’ offers these men a new opportunity to circumvent international and national legislation . . .” The report called on the British Government to prosecute companies, as well as individuals, who promote sex tourism involving children.

But the Government is going to block this Bill today, saying it is unworkable in practice — even though Australia, New Zealand and several European countries already operate similar laws. (For instance, there have been successful prosecutions in Sweden.) Home Secretary Michael Howard has promised “an urgent review” of the law, but campaigners believe this does not go far enough.

Vocal lobbying for the measures in this Bill would be one way concerned people in all parties could take forward positively issues such as the recent, highly -charged and publicised debate about actor Eric Cullen’s jail sentence on indecency charges.

The usual criticism of disputed child abuse cases is that individual young people’s rights and needs are swept beneath the waves of grand principles and general causes. In the “Wee Burney” debate, the needs of one individual and the anger of his supporters submerged major issues, and many other vulnerable people.

Even the basic point that indecent photography is itself a form of child abuse seemed to be lost. Some deeply committed journalists ended up making highly distasteful personal attacks on other journalists. And when one said this nine -month sentence was the greatest miscarriage of justice he had known in 20 years, the affront to the Guildford Four, Birmingham Six, Judith Ward or indeed George Beattie and Emma Humphreys seemed as painful as it was embarrassing.

Of course, sentencing is an important issue. So is the very complex relationship between victimising and being a victim. If a sentence was appropriate, there were more constructive, imaginative ones than prison. But we need to go much further back than this.

The most crucial, glaring question to act upon, which many people forgot to ask (though to be fair to Cullen, his own statements would prompt it) was why on earth the paedophile Frank Currens was able to abuse and intimidate countless children for 18 years, without children feeling free to tell, without those who did so being believed, and without other adults noticing.

Those of us unfortunate enough to have stared into the cesspit of child sex abuse know something of the costs people like Currens inflict. We know of many children, teenagers and adults who have killed themselves, or tried many times, or are repeatedly tormented with suicidal thoughts; finding no-one to keep a 24 -hour watch or even to diagnose their problems. Surely all are equally deserving of our care.

Hardly a week passes without press reports of Currens-type scandals — of residential school heads, priests, ministers or other respected authority figures finally convicted after decades of abuse against children in their care. Yet we never seem to learn the obvious lessons.

Instead, children’s court evidence is repeatedly thrown out as untrustworthy. Young children, as in Sheriff Miller’s Ayrshire judgment, are branded “devious and manipulative”, while millions of pounds and staff-hours are spent in trying to make children’s evidence more “reliable” to adults — whatever the trauma to young people.

In contrast, desperately under-resourced police units can’t even view thousands of seized child porn videos, let along follow up clues from films which have already enabled them to arrest several abusive rings.

Recently the director of the National Criminal Intelligence Service, Britain’s main police intelligence-gathering organisation, publicly demanded more resources and legal teeth to extend its heavily restricted work. In the past year, it received about 350 incoming intelligence reports on paedophiles.

Many well-meaning people in senior jobs also need to search their consciences about the freedom allowed to child abusers over decades. All those second chances, given people thought to have made one foolish mistake; when more often they’ve spent their lives accumulating victims, unspeakable videos and photographs, or intimately detailed diaries.

Some months ago I was astonished to see, featured on a TV documentary about leading “childcare expert” Peter Righton, reminders of the paedophile activities of Dr Morris Fraser. Because it shot me back 22 years to when Fraser’s conviction for child offences caused shock-waves in Belfast. Thousands of people heard of it. For the dapper, boyish figure in a smart blazer was one of Ulster’s best-known child psychiatrists, research writers and conference -speakers on the effects of “The Troubles” on children.

How many jobs had he moved to subsequently, how many references from respected people had failed to mention his history? This was just one example among many. I think it should be made an offence for any referee to conceal their knowledge of a job applicant’s history of risk to children.

Meantime, another new move will challenge organisations including churches to begin taking real steps to make young people safer from the minority of abusers who deliberately target work with vulnerable youngsters.

Supported by the Scottish Office, Volunteer Development Scotland have just published Protecting Children; a code of good practice for voluntary organisations working with children and young people.

It asks them for a bit of effort and commitment — like planning the organisation’s work so as to minimise situations where child abuse can happen, rigorously scrutinising recruitment, and having an independent complaints system. But protecting young people and taking their integrity seriously is surely worth such effort and inconvenience. Then there may be fewer “Wee Burneys” who, later in life, have such traumatic secret histories to reveal.”

Paedophile still working as doctor

The Sunday Times
26 Nov 1995: Regional News: p9
A DOCTOR with a 20-year record of sex offences against children is still on the General Medical Council’s register of practitioners, despite his latest conviction two weeks ago for offences against a 13-year-old boy, writes Lois Rogers.Belfast-born Roderick Fraser, 53, is now living in Amsterdam but in the past two years he has worked as a psychiatrist in the South Hampshire hospital, Southampton. He has also been involved in a charitable trust set up to provide deprived boys with sailing holidays paid for by council grants.
He attracted publicity in the early 1970s for his work helping the child victims of the Ulster troubles, despite the fact that he was already under investigation for involvement with a New York paedophile ring. 
Shortly after that he was convicted of sex offences involving a 13-year-old Belfast boy scout on a weekend trip to London.
His other offences include making indecent films of 8- and 12-year-olds, who he contacted through the Azimuth Trust, organising sailing holidays on the south coast during the 1980s and early 1990s. He was jailed in 1993 for taking and distributing pornographic pictures of boys.
Earlier attempts by the GMC to discipline him led to a reprieve in 1975. A spokesman for the council said last night that they had an agreement with Fraser that he would not practise as a doctor. “That undertaking is being closely monitored by the GMC, and if we receive information that it has been broken we will act immediately,” he said.
John Rainsford, honorary secretary of the Association of Directors of Social Services, said the council’s attitude was “worrying”. He added: “What we do know about paedophiles is that they offend again and again. You would think a professional body like the GMC owed it to itself to do something about this man.
Fraser set up the Azimuth Trust in 1988. One of his fellow directors was Michael Johnson, who was convicted in 1994 of sexually abusing two boys over more than two years during cruises run by the trust.
The parents of one of the boys demanded a public inquiry into the case after Johnson was sentenced.”

20 July 2000Why sex offenders who prey on the young are incurable; ‘THE AVERAGE ABUSER WILL HAVE OFFENDED AGAINST 200 CHILDREN BEFORE BEING

BYLINE: Eileen Fairweather

SECTION: Pg. 17

LENGTH: 904 words

ANYONE hardened enough to kidnap and kill a young child will almost certainly be a career paedophile with a string of lesser offences, such as “flashing”, which has gradually escalated to indecent assaults then worse.

The one thing I’d bet on given this country’s attitude to men who hurt children and a tradition of light sentences is that, somewhere along the way, he will have been shown a mercy he did not deserve.

I have yet to meet an expert in this field who believes the condition is curable. It is an addiction, manageable at best.

Ray Wyre, founder of the Gracewell Clinic for sex offenders, estimates that the average abuser will have offended against 200 children before being prosecuted. He believes paedophiles will always be dangerous, and the best one can hope for – given few are locked up for life – is to teach behaviour modification techniques.

Maureen Carson, a leading NSPCC abuse investigator who works closely with police, believes in most cases “once a paedophile always a paedophile”, and is not even optimistic about therapy’s effectiveness. One of her cases involved four men in the South-East who, between abusing young London boys, founded a charity for Romanian orphans.

They thought up this way to access yet more vulnerable children when they met on a paedophiles’ counselling course in Grendon prison.

They told investigators their charity work was to “repay their debt to children”.

Did these men truly believe that? Probably. Paedophiles are thought incurable due to their sheer level of self-delusion. They believe children want them, “provoke” them, and that adult-child sex is natural, harmless, beneficial.

The now disgraced former top childcare consultant Peter Righton openly wrote that sexual attraction to children was no more mysterious “than a penchant for redheads”.

His friend, child psychiatrist Dr Morris Fraser, argued in the same book that children effectively invite sex with adults.

The self serving, self justifying attitudes of these highly educated men also typifies those of less articulate paedophiles. True remorse and insight are so rare that experts have developed a diagram to teach investigators how paedophiles operate psychologically. Remorse is a tiny part.

The sudden snatching of a child is rare: many paedophiles devote months to the four stages of their addiction cycle. They “target” a future victim; “groom” the victim (ie gaining trust); commit the abuse; and some momentarily experience remorse.

This may be provoked by a child’s tears or their own arrest: suicides are more likely among paedophiles than other offenders questioned by police.

Investigators know they have only a brief period to break a paedophile’s well-established psychological defences.

Why is paedophilia a recidivist crime? A child protection officer once wearily told me she saw it as “like being heterosexual or gay – something that’s basic to their personality, imprinted, unchangeable”.

Some studies suggest that being a victim of sexual abuse in childhood can predispose one to becoming an abuser.

Fred and Rosemary West, who both grew up in abusive homes, fatally bear that out.

But it is a theory that, understandably, infuriates the many adult survivors of abuse who would rather die than see a child suffer as they did.

THE simple answer is that even the experts do not really know why paedophiles are repeat offenders: just that they are and society must respond accordingly. Burglars can reform, paedophiles can not.

Yet acceptance of the incur-ability of paedophiles does not seem to have filtered through to the judiciary, the Home Office and those in charge of children’s organisations. The stories break with monotonous regularity: another boy scout leader imprisoned here, another residential social worker found guilty there.

Invariably, a long history of hurting children emerges – a history that those higher up in the hierarchy covered up because they felt “sorry” for him and believed his claim that it wouldn’t happen again.

Take the horribly misnamed Roger Saint, imprisoned for abusing several children during the North Wales children’s homes scandal. He rose to become head of Clwyd’s fostering and adoption panel despite a known previous conviction for indecently assaulting a 14-year-old boy (he claimed this was an aberration committed while “depressed”).

Or consider Dr Morris Fraser: this child pornographer and abuser was only recently struck off by the British Medical Association, after his third conviction. The BMA continued endorsing Fraser because he switched to work with old people. He then used his respectability as a doctor to set up a registered sailing charity so children could be molested at sea.

Catholic leader Archbishop Cormac Murphy-O’Connor yesterday agreed to pay compensation to victims of Father Michael Hill, now serving a five year prison sentence.

The Church moved him to the chaplaincy of Gatwick Airport; presumably believed “safer”. One of his subsequent victims was a child who missed his flight.

It is tragic that so many in authority fall for paedophiles’ fake contrition. I’ve interviewed many and know how plausible they can be. But paedophiles who sincerely want not to offend again don’t beg to retain positions of responsibility. Do recovering alcoholics seek work in breweries?

No they know to avoid temptation.”

1964: Greek Love by J.Z.Eglington aka Walter Breen

Written by Walter Breen. Best-selling science fiction writer Marion Zimmer Bradley had married Walter Breen, a famous coin collector and noted paedophile author, who molested young boys all his life. Bradley knew all about Breen’s sexual relationship with a fourteen-year-old boy in 1964, the year that they were married. Over the next twenty five years, as Breen promoted sex with children, she turned a blind eye to his abuse of boy after boy. The couple even tried to adopt one of the boys. Breen eventually died in prison, having been convicted of molesting a twelve-year-old boy, a friend of the family. The boy told his parents after four years of abuse. [Library Thing Review 2013]

Marion Zimmer Bradley (MBZ) was a noted sci-fi/fantasy author writing the of Avalon novels. In June 2014, Moira Greayland, MBZ’s daughter spoke wrote publicly about being abused by her mother from the age of 3 to 12.

“Moira Greyland, Bradley’s daughter, went public with her accusation onthe blog of the author Deirdre Saoirse Moen earlier this month, giving Moen permission to quote from an email in which she wrote: “The first time she molested me, I was three. The last time, I was 12, and able to walk away … She was cruel and violent, as well as completely out of her mind sexually. I am not her only victim, nor were her only victims girls.”

Greyland is the daughter of Bradley and Walter Breen, who was jailed for child molestation and died in prison. Greyland wrote in her email to Moen: “I put Walter in jail for molesting one boy … Walter was a serial rapist with many, many, many victims (I named 22 to the cops) but Marion was far, far worse.” (SFF community reeling after Marion Zimmer Bradley’s daughter accuses her of abuse, Alison Flood, The Guardian, 27 June 2014)

In 1997 MBZ had been named as a defendant in civil litigation by one of Walter Breen’s 12 year old victims. Here the stepfather of the boy outlines the reasons behind his timing of publishing the details after MBZ’s death and provides a timeline of events as well as excerpts from MBZ’s deposition in their case.

Interestingly an Amazon comment on a book review of Greek Love states:

2.0 out of 5 stars A flawed work…, March 21, 2004
This review is from: Greek love, (Hardcover)

To begin with, I suspect that the real “author” of this book was Warren Johanssen, a very important figure — perhaps the dominant figure — in the world of New York gay academics. I say this because (a) Walter Breen was a coin expert and (b) the footnotes and bibliography belong to Warren.Much later, Warren Johannsen made extremely important contributions to “The Encyclopedia of Homosexuality,” the most important reference work on this topic ever published.

But Warren liked to remain in the background. He had no desire for publicity, but was fluent in some 14 languages.

That said, Walter Breen managed to write a fairly stupid book on top of the scholarly background provided by Warren. His theme throughout the book is that the only purpose of a love between a man and a younger guy is to encourage the younger guy onto the path of True Heterosexuality, and this is a theme so foolish that I am embarrassed to repeat it. People are who they are!! Why should a gay man in love with a younger guy act like a parental surrogate, and continue insisting that Lovely Heterosexuality is the goal of life, when in fact his boyfriend might be utterly gay?

Walter Breen was a brilliant numismatist, but a very stupid man, who did time in prison several times for extremely inappropriate sexual and social behavior. Towards the end of his life (I have heard) he began regarding the friends of his sons as legitimate targets (!). He wound up in prison and died there, as he so richly deserved.

Sorry: not all gay men are good! Welcome to the real world!

Moira Stern says:

“I am puzzled by this review of my father’s book. Yes, he was a coin expert, but he also had a long and abiding interest in all things Greek, if you will forgive the expression. I do not believe that there was another writer other than my mother, Marion Zimmer Bradley, who did some editing. I cannot imagine my father intending to lead anyone to the path of “Lovely Heterosexuality” when he believed that there was no such thing as a complete heterosexual, and identified himself as exclusively gay, despite his marriage and children. Anyone who has any familiarity with my father’s writing would know he has no need for anyone’s assistance: he wrote forty books on coins. It is a pity how deeply my father BELIEVED the nonsense in this book: it helped the judge determine his sentence: 13 years for a man in a wheelchair with only days to live. He was deemed too dangerous even to be allowed into a hospice.And yet I do agree with the final point here: Not all gay men are good.
In his “defense” I will only say this: he was a brilliant man: staggering IQ, multilingual, math whiz, lightning calculator, concert pianist, and mentor of many mathematicians, physicists, and other scholars. In many cases, people who are academically amazing may not be emotionally amazing. His life was a tragedy, but if there was one thing he NEVER needed, it was a ghostwriter. Peace.”

1967 – 1970: Book Explorers, New York City folded in 1970 but one of its offspring companies published Parker Rossman and DW Nichols joint work ‘Boys for Sale’ – which Rossman penned as Jonathan Drake. There’s also mention in the article below of Coltsfoot Press run by Cazimir Dukahz

1977: Interview with DW Nichols, joint author and friend of Walter Breen (aka       J.Z.Eglington), and also a friend of George Parker Rossman:

An interview with DW Nichols, author of Towards a Boy-Lovers Perspective by D Tsang published in U.S. publication: Midwest Gay Academic Journal, Volume 1, Issues 1-3  [Pages 11-21] Gay Academic Union, 1977

“The truth is that Rossman himself  is very much a boy-lover, although he is married with grown children; he has been personally involved in the Boy-Lovers scene. In fact no one has devoted more of his adult life to studying the various lifestyles of various kinds of Boy Lovers, as well as searching out the literature on the theme, and gone into deep speculation on his findings, than has George Parker Rossman.” (p.20, D W Nicholson in interview, as cited below)

DW Nichols reveals that at 42, he is the same age as his friend J.Z. Eglington (aka Walter Breen, MBZ’s husband above) who wrote in 1964 Greek Love. For more detailed exploration of Englington’s agenda and the flourishing of pro-paedophile stance in academia in general please see Ian Pace’s blog ‘Desiring Progress’ here

Interestingly, Nichols appears to think that the upper classes have been less hostile to PIE’s overtures in the UK than lower and middle classes and also says that is true of the US:

“However PIE’s efforts have been met with virulent hostility from the middle classes and especially lower classes, and this is also typical of the anti-pederastic attitudes here in America.”

The 1970-1971 West Islip/Long Island New York Brehm/Morris/Parker Rossman group with a newsletter

Between January 1970- 1971 George Brehm of Floral Park, New York was using another house in West Islip, New York to host child abuse group meetings which even featured a newsletter and the abuse of boys, some under 11 years old. Dr Morris Fraser, a child psychiatrist who had worked in Belfast studying children in conditions of conflict on which more here Spotlight was indicted along with 7 other men:

Arizona Republic – 4 May 1973
Child-psychiatrist, 7 others charged in sex abuse of 15 hoys

Associated Press RIVERHEAD. N.Y. — British child-psychiatrist Morris Fraser, 39, and seven other men were indicted here yesterday on 27 counts of conspiracy, sodomy and sexual abuse involving 15 boys.

Fraser, who appeared on the widely acclaimed NBC television documentary, Suffer the Little Children, concerning the effects of war on the children of Northern Ireland, pleaded innocent to the charges in arraignment before Suffolk County Judge Pierre Lundberg.

Three other men also pleaded innocent, a fifth was in custody in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and the remaining three men are at large, police said.

The Suffolk County grand jury indictment charged the men with befriending the alleged victims, some under 11 years of age, then committing sex acts with them at a home in West Islip, N.Y., between January 1970 and December 1971.

The indictment specified one count of conspiracy, 19 counts of sodomy and 7 counts of sexual abuse against each defendant.

Authorities said one of those indicted, Hal Oelke, 48, of Manhattan, was a former fund raiser for Big Brothers of New York, but left the post several years ago. The organization works with troubled youths.

Another defendant, George Brehm, 50, of Floral Park, N.Y., was accused of making a house available for the alleged sex activities — a summer home since resold.

Both Brehm and Oelke pleaded innocent to the charges as did a fourth defendant, George Rossman, 53, married and a father of three from New Haven, Conn.

Brehm currently is being held in Auburn State Prison after conviction on similar charges last year.

Sam Fierro, chief of the Suffolk County rackets bureau, said Fraser returned here “willingly and at his own expense” from the British Isles, where he is associated with the Royal Belfast hospital for Exceptional Children in Belfast.

He was released on his own recognizance after the arraignment to return to Belfast, pending trial at a date not yet set.

Oelke and Rossman were released on $2,000 bail each.
