Investigative Progress on the Assassination of JFK

11/17/2012 - 10:30am - 12:30pm

Investigation into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy has continued almost unabated for nearly 50 years now.  It has been claimed “that more words have been written about the assassination than any single, one-day event in world history.” This presentation will address the following questions: How has this continuing investigation evolved in these 50 years? Has new evidence emerged that weakens the Warren Commission conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald, acting alone, killed the president, or has it been otherwise?  To what extent have the rules of good scholarship been relevant to the investigation?
