“Howdy, Mr. President! "

A Fort Worth Perspective of JFK

Conspiracy Theories

Fort Worth advertising executive and graphic artist Jack D. White (1927-2012) began years of study of JFK assassination photographs after reading in the Warren Commission report that Lee Harvey Oswald claimed his three “backyard” photographs were fakes. Testifying before the House Select Committee on Assassinations, White described the three “backyard” images as “sophisticated fakes” made to implicate Oswald in the assassination by tying him to the assassination weapon. He produced evidence that the figures were “superimposed photomechanically on a blank background photograph.” White garnered a national reputation as an expert on the Kennedy assassination. He was a consultant to the House Select Committee on Assassinations and to Oliver Stone during the filming of the movie JFK. White produced two videotapes and lectured widely on his JFK assassination photographic studies. The Jack White John F. Kennedy Assassination Collection is comprised of correspondence, newsletters, popular magazines, newspapers, photographs, slides, and books, some of which are included in these cases.
