The public unveiling of a collaborative project between the Dallas Municipal Archives, the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, and the UNT Libraries, as well as the exhibit Code Three was held on November 20, 2013 at Dallas City Hall.
During the hours and days that followed President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, Dallas Police Department officers gathered numerous eyewitness statements, fingerprints, affidavits, correspondence and homicide reports for not just Kennedy’s assassination, but also the murder of Officer J.D. Tippit the same day of the assassination, and the murder of alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald by Jack Ruby two days later.
“Code Three: Selections from the John F. Kennedy/Dallas Police Department Collection,” an exhibit of the Dallas Municipal Archives materials will be on display through Dec. 2 in the second floor lobby of Dallas City Hall.
