VAGANOV, IGOR VLADIMIRS; "TURK"; JOHN NICHOLSON; KURT KULLAWAY; VINCE CARSON; IGOR BAGANOV
DOB: 1939/1940 (?) POB: Latvia. 1940-45 lived in Germany. 1948/1949 came to USA. Spoke 4 languages. Employed by General Electric Credit Corp. branch outside Philadelphia. Boss was Joe Hart. Asked GE for transfer to Dallas in October 1963. Wife: Martha. "Married" Anne Dulin Nov. 1963 in South Carolina (?) en route to Dallas with 2-way radio, .38 pistol and rifle in red Thunderbird with white top. Benevides saw red Ford at scene of Tippit slaying. Anne Dulin's stepfather, Stan Cukowski, Village Green, PA HU 5-6321, called Conroe, TX juvenile officer that Vaganov, 25, and stepdaughter headed for Texas in GE auto where Vaganov claimed he had urgent business for next week. Anne's sister, Mrs. Jean Anthis, Conroe, TX, came to Dallas Nov 13-19 to get Anne because Vaganovs had quarrelled but they did not separate. 11/20/63 Vaganov got job at Texas Consumer Finance, 1310 Commerce for 1-1/2 days (Carousel Club is upstairs at 1312-1/2 Commerce).

August 1967 issues of ESQUlRE has a 12,000 word account on Igor "Turk" Vaganov. The article details how Mr. Vaganov, a credit manager in a branch of General Electric Corporation outside Philadelphia, requested a transfer to Dallas near the end of September, 1963. The magazine says "He asked again and was turned down again. During the month of October, Vaganov's entreaties to Joe Hart (his boss) became more frequent, more insistent, more obsessive."
When finally refused, Vaganov went to Dallas anyway arriving November 12, 1963.
While in Dallas Vaganov worked for two and one half days. The two days work was done for Texas Consumer Finance Corporation which was located on the first floor of 1310 Commerce Street in Dallas. The magazine innocently adds: "One of the researchers thought it significant, it might be added, that the office where Vaganov went to apply for the job is at 1310 Commerce Street, a few doors down from Jack Ruby's nightclub, The Carousel."
The magazine could not tell the entire truth. The Consumer Finance Company was on the first floor while the Carousel Club was on the second floor of the two story building.
This writer has information that Jack Ruby "hung out" in the office of the Texas Consumers Finance Company, below his club, and quite frequently took their male empIoyees upstairs for coffee. The same informant also notified us that Lee Harvey Oswald worked for Texas Consumers Finance for "several weeks."
Although Vaganov left Dallas the next day after the assassination to return to Philadelphia, the magazine nevertheless concludes that it was nothing more than a strange set of coinidences.
