I recently went looking into the source of the well known FEMA Camp locations list. I managed to first trace the information back to Frtiz
Springmeier's book Be Wise As Serpents
(special pre-publication edition). 1991. Unit 3.9. From there I learned that the original source was
one William R. Pabst of Houston, Texas whom Mr. Springmeier called "credible".
Mr. William R. Pabst is credited as the author of Concentration Camp Plans for U.S. Citizens
(1979). A list of books authored by a William R.
Pabst can be found
may or may not be the same William Richard Pabst of the United States Navy Department's Statistical Quality Control Office as shown
The text of Concentration Camp Plans for U.S. Citizens
(1979) can be found
, which includes, in the original text, the
author's name, address, phone number, and his supposed United States Court Civil Action Number (76-H-667) concerning his lawsuit brought on behalf of
the People in the U.S. District Court Southern District of Texas on August 20, 1976. I believe the legal abbreviation for that is (S.D. Texas).
So I tried searching for the case, but I was unable to find anything (I'm not real good at research involving the legal system). Could anyone help in
seeing if this case exists, and if so, what it says?
I next searched the address provided in the 1979 document and found out that it checks out as a Midtown Veterinary Hospital. Ok, so there is such a
place in Houston, Texas, but hardly a residence. I next checked on how long this
had been at the location - not long.
According to Woodlands Design Group Inc
it had just been renovated in 2010 from a RESIDENCE
which had been around since the 1930s. So, it turns out there was a residence at the address provided in the original document concerning FEMA camps
which existed prior to, on, and after the text was first known of. It also means that "if" Mr. William R. Pabst lived at this location he had either
moved, sold the home, OR died in the early 1990s such as the man at the link provided above: William Richard Pabst.
The phone number given in the text also provides some clues. The 713 area code most definitely checks out as Houston, Texas and so does the 521
prefix. According to a Wikipedia article, the 713 area code stayed the same for Houston (importantly, the area this residence was in - the
metropolitan area) from October of 1947 through March 19, 1983 (right in our time frame).
So, that is what I found so far. Can anyone offer any advice on where to go from here, or help me find the court case? Maybe if this William R.
Pabst is the same as the U.S. Naval Officer?
I am well aware that some on here have "debunked" the locations of some of these camps, although I am not too certain they did it in a 1976 framework,
from Mr. Pabst's information or from information later added, however, that doesn't mean some or all of the original information was not once accurate
or near accurate, so I am trying to find out more on the source. I am asking for some help from those who want to get to the bottom of this.
I recently gained an interest because one of the camp locations, which I live no more than 40 miles from, is getting a new set of train tracks after
30 or 40 years (so guess when there were last train tracks running in to it? - the 70s) via the help of a federal grant under the guise that it will
bring business to an industrial park that currently has one lone business operating in it - an eye center. They are going to rebuild an entire
shortline over the river (a bridge will need to be re-built) and through the woods (literally) for this project.
