Fifty years after the fact, the facts themselves, filtered and funneled into diverse theories, have persisted in various permutations without ever reaching a final denouement. The Warren Commission, convened by Lyndon Johnson days after the assassination, issued its non-conspiracy theory less than a year later in 26 volumes of testimony and exhibits and the 888-page Report of the President's Commission on the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The Commission's conclusion, that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, has been doubted and disputed since the day it was issued.

This exhibit surveys many of the holdings of Baker-Berry and Rauner Libraries that pertain to the assassination, and includes the digital forensic analysis of the famous Oswald backyard photo presented by Dartmouth Professor Hany Farid.

The Grassy Knoll Revisited - On the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy was curated and designed by Dennis Grady. Video editing by Carla Galarza, Jones Memorial Digital Media Intern.
