Kennedy Assassination Materials Available on The Portal to Texas History

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.

People who vividly remember the events of 50 years ago, as well as younger generations, will soon be able to view these 11,406 pages of investigative materials on the University of North Texas Libraries’ Portal to Texas History.

JSTOR is a shared digital library created in 1995 to help university and college libraries to free space on their shelves, save costs, and provide greater levels of access to more content than ever before. More generally, by digitizing content to high standards and supporting its long-term preservation, we also aim to help libraries and publishers of scholarly content transition their collections and publishing activities from print to digital operations. Our aim is to expand access to scholarly content around the world and to preserve it for future generations. We provide access to some or all of the content free-of-charge when we believe we can do so and still meet our long-term obligations.

JSTOR currently includes more than 2,000 academic journals, dating back to the first volume ever published, along with thousands of monographs and other materials relevant for education. We have digitized more than 50 million pages and continue to digitize approximately 3 million pages annually. Our activities, our fee structure, and the way we manage the service and its resources reflect our historical commitment to serve colleges and universities as a trusted digital archive, and our responsibility to publishers as stewards of their content. This underlying philosophy at JSTOR remains the core of our service even as we continue to seek ways to expand access to people beyond academic institutions.
