Dallas Times Herald John F. Kennedy Photos
What's Inside this Collection.
The Sixth Floor Museum’s Dallas Times Herald Collection contains original negatives of approximately 700 black-and-white news images taken by the newspaper’s photographers over the assassination weekend and beyond. Included in the collection are many unique and crucial images, and though only a few of these historic scenes were published by the Times Herald in 1963, they provide a powerful visual record of President Kennedy's last hours in Fort Worth and Dallas, including the motorcade, assassination aftermath, and investigations. The images also provide compelling evidence of the grief and chaos that ensued in the days following the tragedy.
The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza is located on the sixth and seventh floors of an early 20th-century warehouse formerly known as the Texas School Book Depository in Dallas, Texas. On President's Day 1989, The Sixth Floor Museum opened as a response to the many visitors who come to Dealey Plaza to learn more about the assassination. The historical exhibition on the sixth floor highlights the impact of Kennedy's death on the nation and the world. Two key evidentiary areas on the sixth floor have been restored to their 1963 appearance.
