JFK Assassination Records

John F. Kennedy was killed on November 22, 1963. Almost 30 years later, Congress enacted the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992. The Act mandated that all assassination-related material be housed in a single collection in the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). The resulting Collection consists of more than 5 million pages of assassination-related records, photographs, motion pictures, sound recordings and artifacts (approximately 2,000 cubic feet of records). In 2017, over 30,000 additional records were opened up to the public to view and research. These records can be accessed on the National Archives and Records Administration website, but you may also view many documents regarding the assassination and the subsequent investigation in a display featured in the southwest corner of the Gearhart Reading Room.
