Important Archive of 160 JFK Assassination Photos, Attributed to an Ex-FBI Agent

Extensive Album of vintage photos, 9.5" x 11" x 2" thick, containing over 160 vintage collected JFK photographs circa 1963, revolving around the assassination. Ex. Leland Stephens, Texas native who retired with the FBI in 1977. From the collection of Ron Hoskins, assassinologist.

The photographs are a mix of both black and white, and color, with most being 3.5" x 5". The timeline of the photographs appear to range from the arrival of President Kennedy in Dallas (one of the photographs shows Jackie in her famous pink suit, holding the bouquet of red roses given to her upon arrival, and standing alongside her is President Kennedy. Both are smiling.)  Other photos depict the convertible passing through the crowds of Dallas, other street scenes, and the presidential motorcade. But also included are many post assassination photos, the JFK funeral, photos of Oswald, vantage points of the street and the Texas School Book depository building from which Oswald positioned his rifle. There is even an image of Lee Harvey Oswald's duplex at 214 West Neely St. in the Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas. The photographs are taken from many angles and vantage points, so this archive would have been orchestrated from multiple cameras, over a long timeline.

An interesting, eclectic collection of over 160 photographs with a broad overview of images from JFK's assassination. 

Ex. Leland David Stephens. Stephens served in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II, Mr. Stephens entered the F.B.I., where he retired as a special agent in charge in 1977. After a period of time as administrator in the Federated States of Micronesia, he returned to Lubbock, Texas.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
