GEORGE Robert E. Arnold, 57GM While sitting in the waiting room of a den- tist office, Robert E. Arnold picked up a copy of Navy Magazine that would argu- ably change his life. The 1993 edition included pictures of what is believed to be the spine of John Wilkes Booth. Upon further examination, Arnold, a doctor and Navy man him- self, concluded that the wounds were not inflicted in the way that traditionally has been portrayed. Thus began Arnold's jour- ney to unearth the truth behind the mystery of Lincoln's assassin. Arnold, now 85, dedicated the next 20 years to uncovering the truth behind Booth's death. He studied eyewitness accounts, documents that have proven difficult to access for years. His decades of investiga- tion resulted in his book, "The Conspiracy Between the Union Army and John Wilkes Booth to Assassinate Abraham Lincoln." The book was published in 2015 and is now available on Amazon and Kindle. While Arnold sometimes faces resistance for his non-traditional view, he stands by the evidence. "The stories could not have happened the way they told it," he said. Arnold finished his undergraduate studies in 1953 at the University of Ken- tucky, before completing his graduate degree from UofL's School of Medicine in 1957. A retired veteran, Arnold served in a myriad of medical roles during his career, including as a county coroner and surgeon. WHAT'S NEW?
