Recommended Posts

Gary L. Aguilar is an ophthalmologist specializing in plastic and reconstructive surgery, he is also Assistant Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at Stanford University and the University of California, San Francisco. He has lectured extensively on the assassination of John F. Kennedy and has a special interest in the medical evidence, on which he is a leading authority, including especially eyewitness reports from Parkland Memorial Hospital and Bethesda Medical Center.

He is the author of The Converging Medical Case for Conspiracy in the Death of JFK that appeared in Murder in Dealey Plaza (2000).

Gary L. Aguilar is one of only a handful of non-government physicians ever allowed by the Kennedy family privileged access to JFK's still-restricted medical and autopsy evidence that is housed at the National Archives.

From a letter to the editor published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1992 [Vol. 268(13):1681-1682] to a recently-published, 16-page refutation of a pro-Warren Commission analysis that was published in the peer-reviewed journal Neurosurgery in 2005 [Neurosurgery, Vol. 57(3):e601 ff], Dr. Aguilar has continued an active engagement on the JFK topic for many years.

Among his JFK writings are:

1."How Five Investigations Into JFK's Medical/Autopsy Evidence Got It Wrong" (with Cathy Cunningham), available at Historymatters.com at: http://www.history-matters.com/essays/jfkm...sGotItWrong.htm

In November 2003, Dr. Aguilar publicly debated JFK's medical/autopsy evidence with Dr. Michael Baden, former coroner of New York City and former head of the panel of forensic experts who examined JFK's medical/autopsy evidence for the House Select Committee in 1978. The debate was held at a national symposium hosted by Cyril Wecht, MD, JD in Pittsburgh, PA and was attended by over 1300 people.

In 2004, Dr. Aguilar engaged Max Holland in a public debate in Washington, D.C. on the subject, "Was Jim Garrison Duped by the KGB?"

Dr. Aguilar practices in San Francisco and lives nearby with his wife and three children.
