    Seeking JFK assassination evidence from book depository


      Hello, My nephew is a junior in high school and he is working on a project for his forensics science course that is requiring him to create an informative slide show depicting all of the evidence found in the book depository concerning the assassination of JFK, including all documents and pictures that also show the angles of the location of where JFK was at the time of the shooting. Can you please assist us with making sure that we obtain all of the pieces of evidence? Thus far, not including the pics of the angles, we have only discovered 6 pieces of evidence. Not a lot for a 22 slide show. We appreciate your assistance with his project. Thank you

          Dear Ms. Chavez,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 4 series, 247 file units, 9 items in the Records of the President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy (Record Group 272) that pertain to the book depository.  Many of the file units and all of the items have been digitized. For access to the non-digitized records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov.


          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.


          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your nephew’s research!
