The President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy - known as the Warren Commission - was established by President Lyndon B. Johnson on November 29, 1963. The Commission's findings were submitted to President Johnson on September 24, 1964, and have been debated ever since. This unprecedented panel convenes several members of the Warren Commission staff to discuss their roles on the Commission and how the experience affected their professional lives. The attorneys will address the behind-the-scenes, daily work of the Commission and the decision-making processes that led to their controversial 888 pages of findings.
The panel will take place in The Martha Proctor Mack Ballroom in Umphrey Lee Center.
