DISCOVER 10 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT JFK’S ASSASSINATION WITH AUTHOR WALT BROWN AT THE MOB MUSEUM
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 7 P.M.
Event Free for Museum Members or with Paid Admission
More than 50 years have passed since John F. Kennedy’s assassination, yet details about his life and tragic death continue to emerge. Join author Walt Brown at The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, as he presents “10 Things You Didn’t Know About JFK’s Assassination” in an Author Talk and book signing set for Saturday, November 22. The event will begin at 7 p.m. with Brown’s presentation, followed by a question and answer session and signing of JFK Chronology, a collection of books on CD, at 8 p.m.
Brown was a junior in high school on the day of JFK’s assassination and he began to follow—and eventually study—the event on that day. After college graduation in 1969, Brown became a special agent for the United States Department of Justice, working in the New York and Washington, D.C. offices. In 1971, Brown accepted a teaching fellowship from the University of Notre Dame and earned an M.A. and a Ph.D., both conferred in 1974. Brown taught and coached in public schools from 1974 through 2000, and taught college-level history, English and JFK courses from 1989 to 2010. In 1992, Brown wrote “The People v. Lee Harvey Oswald,” the culmination of almost 30 years of JFK study. A well-known researcher took an interest in it and put Brown in touch with Carroll & Graf, known for publishing JFK material, and the book was published in the fall of 1992. In the next four years, Brown published “Treachery in Dallas, The Referenced Index Guide to the JFK Assassination,” the “JFK Assassination Quizbook” and the “Warren Omission.” With those five works, Brown became a regular on the JFK lecture circuit, giving keynote speeches in Washington, Dallas and in the United Kingdom. After several years of collaborating with Jay Harrison, a Dallas police officer on duty on November 22, 1963, Brown wrote “The Guns of Texas Are Upon You” to honor Harrison’s memory after his 2005 passing.
For the next 7½ years, Brown compiled “The JFK Chronology,” sometimes listed as the “JFK Master Chronology,” a 32,000-page work that covers virtually all JFK-related events from the first Kennedy to arrive in the United States (1823) to what would have been JFK’s 96th birthday, May 29, 2013. That work became available on CD-Rom and eventually as a series of e-books.
