Answer: They ALL received funding, either partly or completely, from:

'THE PIONEER FUND', an IRS tax-exempt foundation and trust ..."

Of which:

Sen. James O. Eastland was a member of the fund's board of directors, helping to bring millions of dollars of Draper money into Mississippi to help fund the state's fight against civil rights and to directly fund the first dozen private, segregated white academies.

This is an organization with a long history in Mississippi, a relationship that continues ...

While Draper is not to be found in the Sovereignty Commission files, records involving Draper's lawyer (Harry Weyher) are easy to look up ... Weyher

More Weyher ...
