The Warren Commission, formally known as the President’s Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy, was established by President Lyndon Johnson through Executive Order on November 29, 1963 to combat speculation of a conspiracy. It took its unofficial name from its Chairman, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Earl Warren.
Charles Campbell, administrative assistant to Georgia Senator Richard B. Russell who worked in his Washington office in the 1960s, discusses the Senator’s service as a member of the Warren Commission, the reasons for his dissent to the final report, and what he did when he made his shocking 1968 discovery that the dissent he presented at the last executive session of the Warren Commission had been removed from the commission files at the National Archives.
This program is co-sponsored by the University of Georgia Library’s Richard B. Russell Library; the official archive of the senator and the second largest modern congressional papers research center in the US.
