Baylor Libraries Acquire Kennedy Assassination Conspiracy Materials

Jan. 27, 2005

by Julie Campbell Carlson

Baylor University’s Collections of Political Materials recently acquired papers of the late Penn Jones Jr., one of the earliest Kennedy assassination conspiracy theorists, from a political memorabilia dealer in Fort Worth.

Jones began investigating the assassination of John F. Kennedy soon after the event in 1963. Gary Mack, a fellow researcher and archivist of the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas, later explained, “Penn was one of the first generation of researchers who felt the government was behind the assassination — probably a conspiracy involving military intelligence...He always thought LBJ was behind it somehow.”

The editor of the Midlothian Mirror for 28 years, Jones was the author of four books on the assassination: Forgive My Grief I-IV (1966, 1967, 1974, 1976). He also founded and edited a JFK newsletter, The Continuing Inquiry, in the 1970s and early 1980s. Every year, on the anniversary of the assassination, Jones held a memorial service at Dealey Plaza.

In 1995 the Coalition on Political Assassinations presented Jones with the Sylvia Meagher Lifetime Achievement Award in honor of his groundbreaking and persistent work in pursuit of the truth.

Jones’ papers consist of magazines, articles, media, photographs and letters related to assassination conspiracy theories. BCPM staff is currently preparing an inventory which will be available online. Some materials should be ready for researchers by late spring.

For more information, contact Ben Rogers, director of the BCPM, at 710-3540.

For the United States:

"Four of the seven Warren Commissioners -- the majority -- including Chairman Warren, expressed doubts about the Commission's conclusions within a decade of their report. In 1964, the New York Times quoted Warren's only public statement of doubt: that full disclosure was not possible for reasons of national security (Warren's statement was originally made to Dallas Morning News reporter Clint Richmond at Love Field the day Warren was in Dallas to interview Jack Ruby). But in 1976 the extent of Warren's private doubt became publicly known. It had been confirmed in January 1967, when columnist Drew Pearson told Warren about a conspiratorial lead involving CIA-Mafia assassination plots. Rather than stand by the Commission's conclusions, Warren referred the information to Secret Service Director James J. Rowley, who testified that Warren "...said he thought this was serious enough...and that the Warren Commission was finished, and he wanted the thing pursued, I suppose, by ourselves or the FBI." They were joined by a fifth Commissioner in 1978, when John J. McCloy told the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA), that "I no longer feel we had no credible evidence or reliable evidence in regard to a conspiracy...."

THere is some information on "JFK murder solved" (Wim Dankbaar's

website) that shows that JJ McCLOY was seriously entertaining

the possibility of a forward shooter. Wim posted the letter McCloy

wrote to WC counsel Rankin about Rankin's book manuscript.

It is hedged, of course, but a careful reading shows that if a little

more evidence of a forward shooter had surfaced, McCloy would probably

have gone on record supporting this, a gunman on the overpass (or knoll).

Since Jackie chased Jack's skull fragment back onto the rear hood,

the forward shooter was so obvious that McCloy (indirectly) admitted it.

Check it out.

Penn Jones also was the gentleman who helped out key witness, former (decorated) Dallas police officer Roger Craig, who was fired by Sheriff Bill Decker a few years after the assassination. Penn Jones and Jim Garrison helped Craig bring to light what he knew and had witnessed on 11/22/63.

Check out Penn Jones


and R. Craig


As for evidence of a shooter from the front, we shouldn't forget that a vast amount of skull and brain matter sprayed onto motorcycle police officer Hargis, who rode behind and to the left of Jackie Kennedy. So much for the head shot having been fired from behind JFK....
