Description:

JFK Dealey Plaza Dedication Event, Signed by People of Relevance On the Day of the Assassination

Dealey Plaza, National Historic Landmark, Dedication Pamphlet, 7" x 11". Dated "November 22, 1993". Signed on the front cover by 6 people who were connected to the events from the assassination of President Kennedy. We have identified 4 of the 6 signatures as shown below, leaving 2 others for additional research. The pamphlet is in near fine condition with small handling marks. From the collection of Ron Hoskins, assassinologist.

James Robert Leavelle (August 23, 1920 – August 29, 2019) was a Dallas Police Department homicide detective who, on November 24, 1963, who was escorting John F. Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald through the basement of Dallas Police headquarters when Oswald was shot by Jack Ruby. Oswald was handcuffed to Leavelle.

Norma Jean Lollis Hill (February 11, 1931 – November 7, 2000) was an eyewitness to the assassination of United States President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963. Hill was known as the "Lady in Red" because of the long red raincoat she wore that day, as seen in Abraham Zapruder's film of the assassination. A teacher by profession, she was a consultant for Oliver Stone's 1991 film JFK and co-wrote JFK: The Last Dissenting Witness with Bill Sloan.

Hill's claims have been both disputed and embraced. While official sources have considered her an unreliable witness for a number of reasons, other researchers investigating the assassination and the conclusions of the Warren Commission consider her a highly credible witness. Critics point to her statement that she saw Jack Ruby, the killer of assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, at the scene of the assassination in Dealey Plaza when other witnesses placed him in the offices of The Dallas Morning News at the time. Others point to significant circumstantial evidence of an apparent smear campaign to undermine the testimony and credibility of Hill, the closest civilian witness to the assassination and its immediate aftermath.

Jean Hill was a consistent critic of the official report of the Warren Commission since its release and in 1992, she co-wrote a book entitled "The Last Dissenting Witness". In this book she made the assertion that her reported testimony before the Warren Commission was fabricated by the commission, a claim also made by others about Warren Commission testimony. Others point out that those claims cannot be verified one way or the other, and argue that the Warren Commission did not fabricate testimony at all, although some people who probably committed perjury point to the possibility of an internal conspiracy

Shari Angel was a former Stripper at Jack Ruby’s Carousel Nightclub.

Aubrey Rike just happened to be on a call at Parkland Memorial Hospital when President John F. Kennedy was brought in on Nov. 22, 1963. He was an ambulance driver and apparently saw Mrs. Kennedy take off her wedding ring and tried to put it on President Kennedy's finger.  After the president was pronounced dead, Aubrey and his assistant, McGuire, were asked to get his body ready to leave the hospital.
