Peggy Burney, a Zapruder employee


Recommended Posts

From Vince Palamara research:

42) Peggy Burney---she stated that JFK's car had come to a stop. [Dallas Times Herald,

11/24/63; Murder From Within by Fred Newcomb & Perry Adams (1974), p. 97; interestingly,

during the 11/20/93 C-SPAN "Journalists Remember" conference, Vivian Castleberry of the

Dallas Times Herald made the claim that her first cousin, Peggy Burney, was Abraham

Zapruder's assistant "and was next to him when he shot his famous film. She called and said,

'Vivian, today I saw the President die.'"!---See Sheldon Inkol's article on this conference

in the January 1994 Fourth Decade];

Anything else anyone?

Jack, on p. 76 of Pictures of the Pain, Trask states that Mrs. Margaret(Peggy)Burney, head of the shipping department, had been on Elm street(along the street, contrary to what Castleberry claimed)and "heard two shots, and saw the car speed off." Lillian Rogers, Zapruder's secretary, was the one who persuaded Mr. Zapruder to go back home and get his camera. And of course it was Sitzman who stood next to Zapruder on the pedestal.

Cheers,
