Greg Doudna Posted May 12, 2022 Share Posted May 12, 2022 (edited) The following came to me thanks to Jean Paul Ceulemans of Belgium, who has been a collector of Minox cameras for a number of years as an avocation. That plus an interest in the JFK assassination led him to dig up photos from Dallas Police Department archives that may not have previously been known. In the photo (below) is seen the light meter. Jean Paul writes: "About the Minox-'situation', I do believe the DPD made a mistake in saying the light-meter was a camera. There is no Minox in the 'big' picture, nor is it in 'other' pictures. See those 'other' pictures attached, I do not know if you have seen these. These all come from the DPD archives collection entitled: John F. Kennedy, Dallas Police Department Collection (https://texashistory.unt.edu/explore/collections/JFKDP/) and was provided to The Portal to Texas History (https://texashistory.unt.edu) by the Dallas Municipal Archives (https://texashistory.unt.edu/explore/partners/DSMA/). Jean Paul also found in these Dallas Police archives a copy of the DPD evidence sheet (below) in which for evidence #375 where the list says "Minox camera" there is a DPD handwritten correction beside it, "Lite meter says FBI". The light meter in the photo below is the same light meter in the DPD evidence photo (previously discussed) taken by DPD before turning the items over to the FBI. It is clearly a light meter in the photos, not a camera as originally listed on the sheet. Edited October 13, 2022 by Greg Doudna Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
