Fifty years ago, on Nov. 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas.

Dr. John “Jack” Gordon, a renowned Kennedy scholar, will speak on “The Assassination of President Kennedy” on Monday, Nov. 18, at 7:30 p.m. in Cole Hall at Bridgewater College.  

The program, sponsored by the W. Harold Row Lecture Series, is free and open to the public.

Utilizing slides, still photographs, motion pictures and videos, Gordon delivers a detailed visual record of the Kennedy assassination.

As a graduate student at Indiana University, Gordon began to research U.S. political assassinations and, in particular, the assassinations of JFK, his brother, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Between 1979 and 1983, Gordon taught three different classes on political assassinations at Western New England College and Holyoke Community College. It was during this time that he created a chronological film record of President Kennedy’s assassination with enhancements and photo optics provided by Robert Groden.

In 1988 Gordon consulted with PBS and NOVA on a scientific program related to the assassination of President Kennedy.

Gordon has lectured on the two Kennedy assassinations for more than 35 years.
