During the hours and days that followed President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, Dallas Police Department officers gathered numerous eyewitness statements, fingerprints, affidavits, correspondence and homicide reports for not just Kennedy’s assassination, but also the murder of Officer J.D. Tippit the same day of the assassination, and the murder of alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald by Jack Ruby two days later.

People who vividly remember the events of 50 years ago, as well as younger generations, will soon be able to view these 11,406 pages of investigative materials on the University of North Texas Libraries’ Portal to Texas History.
