Presidential Commission

Here will be posted near mint copies of The Presidential Commission Report (1964 first issue) showing the spine, the various credits over the following pages (the scanner doesn't do to USB key, but...) I'd like to pin down to when it became nicked the warren report and why (and published as such as well.)

Further, given that topics take best on multi format with a lot of cross talk, rather than moving topics off front page by covering each in one I'd like to address a number of off topics. The purpose is to look at perception and how it forms ones belifs. I'll add the other points later.( the Katzenbach Memo for example, the pipe locations...) In this instance, can the first layer of rooms of smoke and mirrors be seen?

edit add: here's a poor photo of the spine and front cover of a photo copy of the REPORT.

Here's proof that the publication nicked the warren report is in fact called the president's (sic) commission..report. (as if it's needed) (further (this is a near mint copy dated 1964) there is no other name for it in the pages to follow, I can provide scans to prove this as well to anyone who asks for them)

So, at some point it became called the Warren Report.

The question is who coined the term and when and why? (3 questions)

Further indication that the report is indeed called the President's Commission...report.

Warren was vilified by the right, largely because of his role in the Brown decision. The JBS was running a campaign to impeach him. He didn't want to head the P.C.. He responded as Jackie and others did with an instinctive blaming of the right when he heard of the assassination. He was a Kennedy supporter.

At some point the whole thing (report, hearings and exhibits) became nicked The Warren Commission.

I think a look at exactly who coined this term and when (which might lead to an answer of why) could be helpful. People will obviously continue to use the term and I'm not on a crusade to change that.

(The whole set of volumes is perhaps the most comprehensive published indicator of a conspiracy. This could be Warrens true legacy. To think of it as the Warren... begs a mindset that I don't think helps objectivity, rather it may act as a blinker.

THANK YOU JOHN, THE NAME THE PRESIDENT'S COMMISSION HAS BEEN KNOWN ABOUT FOR MANY YEARS, FYI, AND IS USED WITHIN THE PAGES OF THE W/C ITSELF..THE IDEA OF FINDING OUT THE WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR SUCH A CHANGE WOULD BE INTERESTING...THANKS B..BELOW IS JUST ONE EXAMPLE..

A New York Times archives search shows that the President's Commission on the Assassination was already being called "the Warren Commission" by December of 1963, months before the report was issued.

Ok, great. Thank you Bernice and Daniel. So it became nicked very early on. This sort of thing is not unusual at all and often totally benign. Still, to tidy up loose ends, it could be interesting to know exactly who first coined the term.

John,

It is an American political tradition to name appointed committees and commissions after their chairman.

It seems that the only major exception is the Korologos Commission,

but that is understandable.

Thank you William. As for now, that, afa I am concerned, clears that matter up.

edit add the following from Gary rounds off some issues, my highlights.

''Hi John,

The Warren Report was the name used by private publishers when reprinting the government’s report, since it was not the entire “Presidential Commission Report.” All of the 1964 “Report” books titled it that way.

As a government document, the Report has no copyright, so publishers were free to call it anything they wanted. The Warren Report was, in a sense, simple news media short hand in the weeks leading up to and following its release…..and the name stuck.

No mystery there, either. :)

Gary Mack''
