Author Biography
Weisberg, Harold (Author)
Harold Weisberg 1924 - 2002 Harold Weisberg was born in 1924 in Philadelphia and grew up in Wilmington, Delaware.

Weisberg also disliked the way the government handled the investigation into the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968. He was hired as an investigator for James Earl Ray and believed that Ray was innocent of the crime. He wrote yet another book on this investigation called "Frame-Up" which was published in 1971. While Weisberg wrote about and critiqued the government, he had his own critics as well and most of his books were not well supported.
