According to the Warren Commission report, an alias used by alleged Presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald to purchase the Mannlicher-Carcano bolt-action rifle used to kill John F. Kennedy. The rifle was ordered through the mail from Klein's Sporting Goods of Chicago, Illinois. The ad for the rifle appeared in the February, 1963, issue of American Rifleman magazine. The shipping address for the order read:
A. Hidell
PO Box 2915
Dallas, Texas

Oddly enough, Mr. Hidell does not appear to have purchased ammunition for the weapon. Nor did Mr. Oswald.
