While many over the years have pondered Lee Harvey Oswald’s motive, clinical psychologist Dr. Gene Riddle took a different tack, analyzing how Oswald became a person capable of assassinating a president. Over the course of six years, Dr. Riddle conducted an in-depth study of Oswald as part of a book-length project for the Professional School of Psychology in Sacramento.

Dr. Riddle will share the results and insights gleaned from his study, which examines the depth and breadth of Oswald’s psychological makeup and life experiences that led to November 22, 1963.

A short musical introduction will highlight a five-minute excerpt of Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin accompanied by selected Kennedy images. Dr. Riddle’s lecture will be followed by a Q&A led by Museum Curator Stephen Fagin.
