A United States president was assassinated in broad daylight on a Dallas street, and years later the answers to many questions about that grim event remain shrouded in suspicion. The findings of the Warren Commission still provoke debate and controversy.
Consequently, the Warren Commission Report is in great demand, and it will continue to be sought out as a research source for a long time to come. Now students in political science, history, and government, or anyone interested in analyzing the data and obtaining background information on the assassination will find the material they require in this collection.
During the course of its massive investigation, the Warren Commission took testimony from 552 witnesses to the assassination and related events, used more than 2,300 investigative reports from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and incorporated 800 reports from the Secret Service into its findings. The Commission also reviewed the actions of several federal agencies regarding their participation in matters relating to the investigation. Among notable public figures who were called to testify under oath before the commission were Dean Rusk, C. Douglas Dillon, John A. McCone, and J. Edgar Hoover.
The 27 volumes of the original hearings and reports were originally published in 1964-65 by the Government Printing Office. Now out of print, these volumes are conveniently available through this microform edition.
Students and researchers will use these documents well into the future or as long as there are unanswered questions pertaining to this tragic, historical event in American history.
