What began as a routine assignment for Dallas Times Herald photographers William Allen, Darryl Heikes, Bob Jackson, and Eamon Kennedy quickly evolved into one of the most significant news stories of the 20th century. These photojournalists captured some of the most significant moments at Dallas Love Field, during the presidential motorcade, at Parkland Memorial Hospital, at the Tippit murder scene, inside Dallas police headquarters, and other important locations throughout the assassination weekend. Their work documented the unfolding story of the president’s death, the investigation, and subsequent murder and burial of suspect Lee Harvey Oswald.
This event features an extraordinary conversation with the four former Dallas Times Herald photographers as they recount their unique memories of what it was like to be caught in the whirlwind of historical events and how the experience affected their careers and personal lives. Photographs from the Dallas Times Herald Collection--the Sixth Floor Museum's first significant donation--also are included in this special presentation commemorating the museum's 25th anniversary. Tickets required.
