On November 7, 2013, guest speaker John Slate, Dallas City Archivist, presented an illustrated lecture titled “JFK at 50: The John F. Kennedy / Dallas Police Department Collection in the Dallas Municipal Archives.” Transferred to the Dallas Archives in 1989, the Kennedy Collection contains more than 11,400 documents and photographs, including homicide reports, affidavits, witness statements, fingerprint cards, mug shots, newspaper clippings and correspondence. Watch John Slate’s complete lecture on TSLAC’s YouTube channel: “JFK at 50.”
TSLAC presented this lecture in connection with Texas Investigates: the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy and Wounding of Governor John B. Connally, an exhibit free and open to the public until February 14, 2014 in the lobby of our Lorenzo de Zavala State Archives and Library Building in Austin.
