President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, November 22, 1963

Listen to a podcast about the JFK assassination:

Lamar Waldron, author of multiple books on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, will speak at the University of West Georgia’s Ingram Library on Wednesday, November 9, at 11:00 a.m. He will speak on “The Hidden History of the JFK Assassination.”

Waldron’s talk is part of an exhibit entitled “The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy.” This exhibit, sponsored by Ingram Library’s Penelope Melson Society, will run from October 24 through November 22 and will be in the Ingram Library at UWG. The exhibit will feature videos, a model of Dealey Plaza, exhibit cases displaying artifacts relating to the assassination, and the famed Zapruder Film.

Following the assassination of President Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963, two governmental inquiries, the Warren Commission (1964) and the U.S. Select Commission on Assassinations (1979), concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald shot the president, although the latter panel reached the conclusion that Oswald was part of a conspiracy involving more than one gunman. Drawing on his considerable research in recently-released government files, Waldron too will argue that more than one gunman was involved in the murder of the president.

One of Waldron’s books on the JFK assassination, Legacy of Secrecy: The Long Shadow of the JFK Assassination (2009), is currently being developed as a feature-length motion picture by Leonardo DiCaprio. Waldron’s other books on the assassination are Ultimate Sacrifice (2006) and The Hidden History of the JFK Assassination (2013). Lamar Waldron has been featured numerous times on CNN, MSNBC, Fox, the Discovery Channel, and the History Channel. He has been called “the ultimate JFK historian.”

The exhibit will feature a podcast interview with historian Michael Kurtz available at The interview was conducted by historian John Ferling and recorded and produced by The WOLF Internet Radio. Dr. Kurtz, professor emeritus at Southeastern Louisiana University, is the author of two highly acclaimed scholarly works on the assassination, Crime of the Century: The Kennedy Assassination from a Historian’s Perspective (1982) and The JFK Assassination Debates: Lone Gunman versus Conspiracy.
