  1. In November of 1963, Jim Underwood and George “Sandy” Sanderson were cameramen for KRLD in Dallas. KRLD was the CBS affiliate for their Dallas coverage. In the Presidential Motorcade, Jim Underwood was in the middle front seat of Camera Car Number 3. This is the same Chevy convertible that James Darnell, Malcolm Couch, and Robert Jackson rode in, sitting in back, on top of the trunk. Sanderson was at Love Field when AF1 arrived and filmed JFK there. He later ends up in Dealey Plaza. KRLD photo of Sanderson in Link below also shows photo of Underwood: http://www.akdart.com/vtr/vtr6.html Bob Huffaker says Sanderson was 65 years old in 1963 and used a 16 mm hand held Bell & Howell Camera that shot silent film. - from the Foreward of “Into the Newsroom: Exploring the Digital Production of Regional Tellevison News” by Emma Hemmingway Underwood and Sanderson shared the same hand-held 16mm Bell & Howell camera in Dealey Plaza. Underwood filmed some of the activity on the Grassy Knoll in the immediate aftermath of the shooting. There is reason to believe Sanderson may have filmed some of the activity in front of the TSBD. Willis photo 15 shows a group of people standing in the intersection of Houston and Elm with the Dal-Tex building in the background. On the far right of the photo, there is a man holding a 16 mm camera facing the TSBD. Could this man be Sandy Sanderson? He is in the right location, at the right time, with a camera that could have taken some interesting footage. On 1/24/68, Investigator Stephen Jaffe wrote a memo to Jim Garrison after interviewing Richard E. Sprague, that contained the following: “Darnell told Sprague that he had gotten footage of a man who was being arrested, described the man as being middle-aged, a little bit husky. He said the police put him in the squad car on the Southwest corner of Houston and Elm Streets, and turned him loose after a few minutes. He further described the man who was taken into custody as being a white man, not dark complexioned. http://jfk.hood.edu/Collection/Weisberg%20Subject%20Index%20Files/J%20Disk/Jaffe%20Stephen%20Personal%20Memos/Item%2008.pdf Another Jaffe memo dated 1/26/68 stated: “Television cameraman Sandy Sanderson had taken film footage for KRLD in 16mm including an arrest and also including film of the finding of the rifle. Sprague has viewed the film by Sanderson and said that these important scenes have been omitted and no longer exist, at least for public viewing.” http://jfk.hood.edu/Collection/Weisberg%20Subject%20Index%20Files/J%20Disk/Jaffe%20Stephen%20Personal%20Memos/Item%2011.pdf Note that the memo above seems to place the arrest in the same context as the rifle being found. A Sprague memo dated 1/10/68 contains some of the same info as the 1/24/68 Jaffe memo, but adds a few observations: “He [Darnell] ran up the knoll and into the parking lot with Roger Craig and can confirm Craig's testimony. He was shooting footage all the way. He also took footage of an important arrest, a heavy-set, middle aged white man who was put in a police car at the corner of Houston and Elm. This was not Larry Florer, or Danny Arce or Charles Givens.” http://jfk.hood.edu/Collection/Weisberg%20Subject%20Index%20Files/W%20Disk/Witnesses/Item%2020.pdf Don Cook of KTVT is also included as having taken footage of the arrest and “extra rifle”. Sprague says that Willis 10 shows the arrest of this man. So, who is the man who was put into the Police car? We have film and photos of Arce, Williams, and Shelley being escorted into a different car, so we know it is not one of them. Charles Givens has also been specifically excluded. That leaves Billy Lovelady and Jack Dougherty from the group that was taken in for police interviews. But Billy Lovelady was only 26 years old in 1963, a bit young to fit the “middle-aged” description. In his Warren Commission testimony of April 8, 1964, Jack Dougherty said he was 40 years old. Roy Truly described Jack as a “great big husky fellow”. Was Jack Dougherty the “Heavy set, middle-aged man” placed in the Police car? And if not Jack, then who? I have, thus far, been unable to locate the film sequence attributed to Sandy Sanderson by Sprague, or any still photos that captured this event, but I am still looking.
