Description

Series 4: Warren Commission Files, 1959-1967, is arranged by document type, broken down into correspondence (arranged alphabetically by correspondent and chronologically thereunder); administrative and reports (both arranged chronologically); writings (arranged alphabetically and thereunder chronologically); and interviews and media (arranged chronologically). This series includes correspondence, memoranda, reports, preliminary drafts of the final Commission report, clippings, articles and interviews relating to Dulles's service on the Warren Commission. The correspondence includes incoming and outgoing notes and letters, articles and clippings. Correspondents range from members of the Commission to citizens offering their own analysis of the assassination.

The administrative material documents the official activities of the Commission. Included are minutes, agendas, financial information and memoranda, which indicate how the Commission was organized and the guidelines for procedures. Included are intra-Commission memoranda as well as memoranda with other governmental organizations, including the F.B.I. and Secret Service. The findings of these two agencies, plus the Dallas police, were submitted to the Commission, and much of this material documents the life of Lee Harvey Oswald.

The first volume of the published Warren Commission report, signed by all the members, is catalogued separately.
