Malcolm Everett Wallace (November 15, 1921 – January 7, 1971) was an associate of Lyndon Johnson.

Early years[edit]

Malcolm Wallace was the son of Alvin James Wallace, Sr. (1895-1973), a cement and construction contractor, according to the 1930 US Census, and Alice Marie Riddle (1897-1959). Malcolm Wallace served as a private in the US Marine Corps. As a student at the University of Texas at Austin, Wallace led a 1944 protest against the ouster of University president Homer P. Rainey. [1] Wallace graduated from the University of Texas in 1947. He was a student in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Columbia University, from September 1947 to May 1948 but did not graduate with a degree.

Assassination of John F. Kennedy[edit]

In 2003, Barr McClellan, Edward A. Clark's former legal partner, published Blood, Money & Power: How LBJ Killed JFK. In the book, McClellan charges that Lyndon B. Johnson and his attorney Clark were involved in the planning and cover-up of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. McClellan names Malcolm Wallace as one of the assassins. The book includes allegations surrounding Johnson's alleged theft of the 1948 Senate election,[2] an Austin murder by Wallace, and a belated grand jury action regarding Johnson in another murder by Wallace. The killing of Kennedy, McClellan alleges, was paid for by oil millionaires, including Clint Murchison, Sr. and H. L. Hunt. McClellan purports that Clark got $6 million for arranging the assassination, including a $2 million bonus. French journalist William Reymond published a book the same year in which he claims that Cliff Carter and Malcolm Wallace were key to helping plot the murder of JFK.

Later years[edit]

Wallace worked for 15 years as an administrator for Ling-Temco-Vought. The Texas Department of Public Safety reported that Wallace was killed about 7:35 p.m. Thursday, January 7, 1971, when his car ran off the road 3.5 miles south of Pittsburg, Texas on U.S. 271. [3][4] According to his death certificate, he died of a compound comminuted skull fracture with possible basal skull fracture. He is buried in Nevills Chapel Cemetery, Mount Pleasant (Titus County), Titus County, Texas, USA. [5]
