Note:

This image is the nineteenth photograph on negative strip 16 in the Dallas Times Herald collection.

Note:

The Dallas Times Herald newspaper employed a number of staff photographers who were assigned to cover President Kennedy's visit to Fort Worth and Dallas. Not all photographs have a confirmed photographer.

The images on this negative strip were taken by one of two Dallas Times Herald staff photographers at Parkland Hospital on November 22, 1963. There were two Dallas Times Herald photographers at Parkland who stayed for the press conference which appears in the last frames on this negative strip - Eamon Kennedy and John Mazziotta. One of them took these photos. Bob Jackson, who was at Parkland earlier, was not present at the press conference.
