Warren Commission Report: Fact or Fiction? | WisCommunity

The Thursdays at the U speaker on December 1st will be David Yorks, a life-long resident of Lake Minnetonka and a graduate of the University of Minnesota, with a bachelor's in history and master's degree in American History. He has been fascinated by the presidency of John Kennedy for 55 years. Yorks has attended several national conferences on the topic of the Kennedy assassination, and he enjoyed a career which allowed for frequent visits to Dallas, TX – as often as 16 times per year. These trips enabled him to meet with witnesses who were present in Dealey Plaza as well as with several doctors who had attempted to save the President's life at Dallas' Parkland Hospital. Yorks' talk is entitled "The Warren Commission Report: Fact or Fiction?" This presentation will highlight the major discrepancies between the findings of the Warren Commission, which investigated the assassination of President Kennedy for 10 months in 1964, and the conclusions of the United States House of Representatives' Select Committee on Assassinations, which investigated the assassination for thirty-one months, ending in 1979. Although Yorks will not focus on "conspiracy theories", he will discuss the challenges facing the Warren Commission along with the many advantages available to the House Select Committee. Yorks hopes to present the Kennedy assassination in a perspective that will generate interest and/or lead to additional research by audience members. This and other sessions of Thursdays at the U are free and open to the public, thanks to financial support from the campus foundation. Neither seating reservations nor parking permits are required for attendees. Each presentation is from 12:30-1:30 in the Blue Hills Lecture Hall (Ritzinger 234) on the UWEC-Barron County campus, located at 1800 College Drive in Rice Lake.
